10 Sep 2014

Hughes Network Systems has announced that it has become the first company to exceed one million active users in North America for satellite internet connectivity. This total includes all ‘HughesNet’ retail and wholesale subscribers and additional users receiving services through third-party service operators with capacity arrangements. Hughes, which targets customers in areas unserved or underserved by terrestrial broadband, claims that its one million active users makes it by far the largest provider of satellite internet connectivity in the world.
