Hughes Achieves Major Milestone Of Over Three Million Satellite Terminals Shipped

GERMANTOWN, Md., Jan. 14, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Hughes Network Systems, LLC (HUGHES), the global leader in broadband satellite solutions and services, today announced that it has shipped more than 487,000 broadband satellite terminals in 2012, the most ever in one year, bringing its cumulative number of satellite terminals shipped worldwide to more than 3.3 million.

The new record reinforces the company's leadership in both broadband satellite services and technology, with customers in over 100 countries and in all market segments. Large and small enterprises across virtually all vertical sectors, along with government and multi-national organizations, rely on Hughes for an ever-expanding range of broadband networking solutions. Its leading consumer high-speed satellite Internet service in North America is growing at an accelerated rate since the launch of HughesNet ® Gen4 service in October 2012, powered by the EchoStar XVII Ka-band satellite with JUPITER high throughput technology — with over 200,000 HT terminals  shipped in the last quarter of 2012.

"Every one of those 3.3 million terminals is a testament to the trust placed in Hughes by our customers for their communications solutions," said Pradman Kaul, president of Hughes. "It's what drives us to innovate and continually advance our satellite technology and services — ensuring they succeed, so we succeed. And that hasn't changed since we shipped the first VSAT terminal in 1986, nor has the pride in our people who make it happen."
