DISH to Offer DishNET High-Speed Internet

Updated on October 22, 2012

As of October 1, 2012, DISH will offer DishNET high-speed Internet to new and existing customers. Customers who also have a qualifying channel package can choose to bundle this service with their cable, making both services payable on one bill.

DishNET Speeds

Like HughesNet, DISH’s current partner in providing satellite Internet service, DishNET will be available in speeds of 5 Mbps and 10 Mbps depending upon geographic location. Customers in heavily populated areas generally receive signal from the ViaSat-1 satellite, which allows for more options in speed and data. Other customers receive signal exclusively from augmented spot beams, which allows for 5 Mbps Internet service.

DishNET Data Plans

Monthly data caps are available in 10 GB, 20 GB, or 30 GB. Those who are within ViaSat-1 service areas may choose one of the following:

· 5 Mbps/10 GB

· 10 Mbps/20 GB

· 10 Mbps/30 GB

Those who receive signal from augmented spot beams may choose from the following:

· 5 Mbps/10 GB

· 5 Mbps/20 GB

Data caps are higher with DishNET and now include both Anytime data and Bonus data. Each plan includes half of each; for example, a 20 GB plan includes 10 GB Anytime data and 10 GB Bonus data. Bonus data can be downloaded between the hours of 2 am and 8 am, while Anytime data is available around the clock.

If a customer runs out of Bonus data before the month’s end, he or she may use the rest of his or her Anytime data. However, if Anytime data limits are exceeded, only Bonus data is available until the following month.

Customers who wish to order more data can do so at any time by purchasing 3 GB data increments, called tokens, for $25 each.
