It’s important to know that all satellite Internet Service Providers (ISPs) utilize “shared bandwidth technology.” Simply put, that means everyone with satellite Internet access shares one high-speed Internet connection. And in some cases, as few as five percent of the users can consume as much as 50 percent of an ISP’s satellite Internet bandwidth, making the satellite Internet access run slower for everyone else!

At HughesNet®, the highest priority is making sure you have fair and equitable access when you go online. Which is why their Fair Access Policy has been established to protect you, and other consumers, from that small percentage of users who may take advantage of the shared satellite Internet access by downloading abnormally large amounts of information in a short period of time. The Fair Access Policy prevents this from happening, and makes sure that you get your share of the high-speed satellite Internet access connection.

The Fair Access Policy helps HughesNet assure that its subscribers receive equal high-speed satellite Internet access to our service. Ensuring you get the high-speed service you pay for!
