If you've ever thought about the opportunity to become a HughesNet Authorized Retailer, now is the time!


As explained in one of our latest blog articles called World's Highest-Capacity Broadband Satellite Launched Successfully, Hughes is getting geared up to provide the best high-speed satellite Internet service ever and it'll cover nearly the entire United States. 

The goal is to have the new satellite service, called HughesNet Gen5, fully functional by April 1, 2017. That's in less than two months! For any households or businesses that have struggled to find great Internet service, especially in rural markets, HughesNet Gen5 is the solution. Millions of customers in the U.S. will be wanting and needing the better internet service to handle all of their daily Internet-surfing and TV-streaming activities.

And that's exactly why now is the time to become a HughesNet Authorized Retailer.


HughesNet Gen4 High-Speed Satellite Internet has been a lifesaver for the rural markets for several years. Many customers that didn't have much access to the Internet have been able to stay connected to the world wide web from almost anywhere.

As seen in the image below, HughesNet Gen4 ran on two different satellites - one called Jupiter 1 and another called Spaceway. Jupiter 1 covered the areas in green and Spaceway covered the area in blue. While both satellites comprised the Gen4 service, it was known that the Spaceway satellite (blue area) didn't have Internet packages and speeds as fast as Jupiter 1 (the green areas). It was simply because Spaceway was the older satellite of the two satellites.

RS&I's territory for HughesNet Authorized Retailers covers the western and mid-western portions of the United States. While we have had access to Jupiter 1 in several areas, the bulk of our territory has been covered by Spaceway. 

That's about to change. Customers across the United States, especially the ones in the blue area, are about to get a major upgrade to their satellite Internet service as they go from Gen4 to Gen5 service plans. 


The Spaceway satellite will no longer be used and Jupiter 2 is the new, replacement satellite that was successfully launched in December 2016. Paired with the Jupiter 1 satellite, these two satellites will be powering the brand new HughesNet Gen5 Satellite Internet. With the new service, the speeds will be more consistent and much faster than before. In fact, Internet speeds coming from HughesNet Gen5 will be the fastest speeds available in the United States for satellite Internet.

It's easy to imagine the all benefits of the fifth generation of HughesNet for both consumers and businesses.

The same service plans will be available across the country, which means a HughesNet Authorized Retailer in Utah with be able to offer the same plans to their customers as a retailer can in Wisconsin. It's an opportunity unlike any other in this industry and RS&I can help you make it a successful and profitable journey.
