Hughesnet is one of those companies that really has increased their worth in the last few years. While they were always a solid companies, hughs in El Paso, Texas should be seen as a shining example of a satellite internet company. The customer service, speed and ease of installation all rate amongst the highest that I have ever familiarized myself with in the years since I first got satellite internet at my domicile. The problems with older forms of internet, such as dial-up, can largely be summed up in the fact that the speed is atrocious when one compares it to satellite. Furthermore, the tying up of phone lines is a bear, something that does not happen when one has satellite. When one looks at the speed difference, there can be times where the break between satellite and dial-up exceeds 200 times. The range of different speeds that can be bought differs between 700Kbps and 3.0 Mbps, so there are solutions for anyone that wishes to have it. So, the next time that you are looking for cable service, make it a point to check up and see what Hughes Net is offering. I am sure that you will come out of it a happy buyer.
