Hughes Reaches One Million VSATs Shipped

Hughes Network Systems has reached the milestone of one million satellite terminal shipped -- marking a major achievement in the global very small aperture terminal (VSAT) industry, which Hughes started in the mid-1980s when it shipped the first VSATs to Wal-Mart.

"We are extremely proud of reaching this significant milestone," said Pradman Kaul, chairman and CEO of Hughes. "In addition to manufacturing products and providing networking solutions around the globe, we have also brought the capabilities of broadband satellite technology to the small business and consumer markets that are not served by terrestrial providers. We now have over 275,000 subscribers in the US enjoying the benefits of HughesNet high-speed satellite internet access, a major milestone in itself."
