HughesNet does provide a generous amount of data across its plans. The company practices a Fair Access Policy that regulates the amount of data usage for each customer. It limits the amount of data uploaded or downloaded with a one-month billing period. Customers who exceed this limit can experience a reduction in internet speed.

*** Speeds are not guaranteed. Monthly Data is the sum of the Anytime and Bonus Zone. Actual speeds during the Bonus Zone period will likely be lower than speeds indicated.

I have the Gen 5. It is not fast. You have a choice of how much gyg-a-bites you want for what they call high speed. Once you use your gigs for the month the speed gets slower. You can buy more gigs if you want. Also, it goes out when it rains. The best kind of Internet is cable.
