Success! EchoStar XIX launched triumphantly on December 18, 2016, from Cape Canaveral, Florida. It will be the world's highest-capacity broadband satellite in orbit, powering the growth of HughesNet - America's number one choice for satellite Internet - to deliver more speed, more data and more advanced features to consumers and small businesses from coast to coast.
Rural America will be more connected than ever before because of this brand new high-throughput satellite. EchoStar XIX is set to power the next generation of satellite Internet service, called HughesNet® Gen5, for potentially millions of customers.
