Hughes Network Systems launched HughesNet, its high-speed satellite internet service for consumers and businesses, in Ecuador. Operating over the Hughes 63 West High-Throughput Satellite (HTS) payload, its broadband coverage reaches more than 90 percent of homes throughout Ecuador, including areas unserved or underserved by terrestrial providers

HughesNet is powered by the latest generation of the Hughes Jupiter System, which employs the DVB-S2X standard for use of satellite bandwidth. The Jupiter System supports a range of applications, from broadband internet and intranet access to community Wi-Fi hotspots, cellular backhaul, and digital signage and mobility.

“We are committed to bringing affordable internet service to people and businesses everywhere in the world to help promote education, social well-being and economic development,” said Hughes President Pradman Kaul. “Following on our successful launch of HughesNet service in Brazil, Colombia, and Peru, we take pride in bringing our signature high-speed satellite internet to Ecuador to help connect the unconnected and bridge the digital divide.”
