Hughes High Capacity Access™ is ideal for retailers, restaurants, hotels,
convenience stores, financial and other large distributed enterprises that
need to run bandwidth-hungry applications at their branch sites. Enterprises
no longer need to be constrained by slow T1 access or require expensive
Ethernet access to deliver high-bandwidth applications such as guest Wi-Fi,
on-demand video training and business analytics across their networks.

"Today many enterprises are finding that T1 access (1.5Mbps) just isn't fast
enough to support their growing applications," said Mike Cook, senior vice
president, North American Division at Hughes. "And Ethernet access is too
expensive and often not as widely available as their telecom providers have
led them to believe. Our new High Capacity Access service delivers speeds much
faster and at a lower price point than T1, and far lower than Ethernet — and
unlike Ethernet, it is available everywhere broadband is available."

Hughes High Capacity Access brings enterprises a cost-effective, nationally
available high-speed service, scalable up to 12 Mbps, using either cable or
fiber where it is available, and DSL where it is not. Hughes ActiveBonding^™
technology intelligently combines multiple DSL links into a single
high-capacity connection that allows each application access to the full
combined capacity.

Implementing Hughes High Capacity Access is fast and easy. There are no major
equipment or expensive network upgrades needed. Hughes manages the network
equipment and broadband connections which include cable, fiber and DSL. Like
all of Hughes Managed Network Solutions, Hughes High Capacity Access is backed
by Hughes comprehensive support which includes installation, maintenance and

The service is targeted for general availability at the end of Q1 2013. To
