MicroCorp Reselling HughesNet Business Services

Hughes Network Systems LLC, a satellite broadband provider, said today it has signed MicroCorp Inc. as a certified reseller of HughesNet broadband satellite business services in the United States.

HughesNet business services target rural areas where neither DSL nor cable is available, and where T1s are prohibitively expensive. HughesNet also serves as a backup option for companies in urban areas.

MicroCorp agents, systems integrators and VARs now can sell HughesNet services.

“Adding HughesNet to our telecom service offerings highlights our commitment to bringing our channel partners the most advanced solutions available so they can better service their end customers,” said Brad Miehl, president and CEO of MicroCorp. “The nationwide HughesNet broadband satellite service gives our customers the ability to connect remote locations economically, and offers a robust solution to ensure that mission-critical applications stay online even during a landline outage.”

HughesNet service is delivered over a satellite modem that connects to a small outdoor antenna at the customer site. Hughes offers several packages with download speeds ranging from 1mbps to 2.5mbps, and upload speeds ranging from 200kbps to 1mbps. Monthly service prices range from $69.99 per month to $399.99 per month.

“Developing our reseller channel with premier partners such as MicroCorp is key to growing our commercial broadband service business-particularly in the dynamic and growing small-to-medium business market,” said Mike Cook, senior vice president at Hughes.
