Hughes boosts Puerto Rico satellite coverage

8 Apr 2021

Hughes Network Systems has secured additional capacity over Puerto Rico for its HughesNet satellite internet service. Hughes says that the capacity increase – on the existing Hughes 63 West satellite payload – will enhance the customer experience for current HughesNet customers across Puerto Rico and enable Hughes to serve even more customers on the island. Peter Gulla, senior vice president at Hughes, commented: ‘Due to the pandemic and recent natural disasters, the people of Puerto Rico understand the value of being connected.’

TeleGeography notes that HughesNet currently connects more than 1.5 million subscribers across the Americas, with 1.189 million of those located in the US.
