      Hughes Network Systems announced that its recently launched HughesNet Gen5 satellite internet service is now serving more than 100,000 homes and small businesses, including both new subscribers and upgrades. According to the company, subscribers in every continental U.S. state have been connected to the service.

      Launched in late March 2017, new customers to HughesNet Gen5 are experiencing faster speeds, more data, built-in Wi-Fi and an overall improved internet experience, Hughes stated. HughesNet Gen5 offers Federal Communications Commission (FCC) defined broadband speeds — 25 Mbps download and 3 Mbps upload — from coast-to-coast.

      According to Hughes, early customer responses show they are enjoying higher satisfaction and improved performance from the new service.

      “The new HughesNet Gen5 is meeting the need for high-speed internet in households and small businesses across the country — especially in areas underserved or unserved by ‘traditional’ wired internet,” said Mike Cook, executive vice president at Hughes.
