Most other kinds of internet come with data caps which limit the amount of data you can download and upload, but with satellite internet, these limits are more limiting. ‘Anytime data’ means the data you get to use at any time. HughesNet’s cheapest plan gives you 60 GB data, which in itself is not a bad deal, but there is a catch: only 10 GB out of the 60 is anytime data. The rest is labeled ‘bonus bytes’, and can only be had between 2 and 8 in the mornings. Use only the bonus data during nights – set updates and such to happen only between 2 and 8 am. Huge downloads can be set for these intervals too.

Customer service for satellite internet is always a concern. If you ever face an issue and need help, it is probably that a third party will take over and handle your request. It is common for satellite customers to get frustrated by inadequate service, and this does not seem to be about to change soon. Make sure to avoid mishaps in this department. Knowing the contents of the contract is a good start; at least read the FAQs to be clear on some of the areas of the service.
