Government High-Speed Internet


Congress passed, in early 2009, landmark legislation known as ARRA (the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act). This bill was enacted to create and save American jobs, to stimulate domestic and foreign investment in America and to increase government accountability. Within this Recovery Act was stated the objective to increase access to high-speed Internet for rural Americans. Seven billion dollars was allocated to a government entity that was then responsible to work with private partners to bring government high-speed Internet to those without Cable or DSL Internet access.
 

Government High-Speed Satellite Internet


One of these private partners that the government chose to help bring subsidized Internet to rural America (and the only satellite Internet provider chosen) was HughesNet®. For a very limited time (aka, only while funds were still available) new, qualifying, HughesNet® customers were able to have all up-front installation, activation and eqipment fees waived and the government funds were also used to reduce the monthly access fee for any HughesNet® plan selected. Those eligible for the Recovery Act Internet program had great benefits. This program is now closed!

Government High-Speed Internet Program


When you call, we just input your address into a program and it is run against a government database that has been set up to determine eligibility. The database uses census tract information from the 2010 census. Eligibility for the government satellite Internet program is determined by this data alone. The government uses it's "best guess" to determine if your address currently has no access to broadband-speed Internet. No other factors (such as your income or current Internet service) are used in determining qualification for the program. Please note that the government database is not perfect and is sometimes inaccurate. There was nothing HughesNet® could do about this. This program is now closed.
