GERMANTOWN, Md., Nov. 26, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Hughes Network Systems, LLC
(HUGHES), the leader in broadband satellite solutions and services, today
introduced three new HughesNet® ^ Gen4 Business Internet service plans that
deliver speeds up to 15 Mbps for small and medium-sized enterprises, ideal for
locations where terrestrial high-speed Internet connections are either too
expensive or unavailable.


The new HughesNet Gen4 Business Internet plans provide download speeds of 10
Mbps or 15 Mbps and a choice of generous data allowances tailored to the needs
of the business. The three service plans are Business 200, Business 300, and
Business 400, with prices from $79.99 to $129.99 per month. All plans include
HughesNet Express Repair Premium at no cost for the first year, which provides
next business day onsite response time; free anti-virus software for up to
three PCs; commercial installation; and business-grade support.

HughesNet Gen4 Business Internet provides broadband access in the continental
U.S. and is ideal for sites without DSL service or where other options are
expensive, such as T1 lines. The new service plans are powered by the recently
launched EchoStar^® XVII satellite with JUPITER^™ high-throughput technology—a
next-generation Ka-band satellite employing a multi-spot beam architecture and
providing the industry's fastest satellite Internet speeds.

"Small and medium-sized businesses with limited or no access to landline
broadband Internet deserve the same high quality and speed available in
well-served areas," said  Sam Baumel, vice president of SME at Hughes.
"HughesNet Business Internet gives them the performance they need no matter
where they choose to work or live."
