Why is my HughesNet internet speed slower than advertised?

Like most internet providers, HughesNet’s advertised speeds are indicative of the maximum speed the internet connection is capable of, but not necessarily the speeds you should expect to receive consistently. Satellite internet connections like HughesNet can also be impacted by weather, physical obstructions, high bandwidth usage by others in your areas, and other factors that wired connections don’t have to worry about. If you suddenly notice your internet speed is lower than usual, check the dish to make sure that it isn’t damaged or obstructed.

About our HughesNet internet speed test

The HughesNet internet speed measures three things:

Download speed: The speed at which your device pulls data from the internet. Usually measured in Mbps or Gbps.

Upload speed: The speed at which your device sends data to the internet. Usually measured in Mbps or Gbps.

Latency (Ping): The time (measured in milliseconds) it takes for a signal to travel from your device to an internet server and back. Lower latency means your connection has a better response time for activities like gaming and livestreams.

How does the HughesNet internet speed test work?

Speed tests connect to a nearby server and send test data over this connection. By looking at how long it takes for different files to travel over your connection, the test can analyze it. The idea is to measure the speed of your home’s internet connection, but if you’re connecting to the test over your Wi-Fi network, the test will be measuring the data traveling across both your home connection and through your router and home Wi-Fi, which can give a different result. It’s a good idea to physically plug your device into your router before running a speed test to get the best results.

Is satellite better than fiber and DSL?

Satellite is much slower than fiber, DSL, and most other types of internet connection. Satellite’s big advantage is being accessible anywhere, so it’s a good option for rural areas with no other options.
