HughesNet Satellite Internet Service Aids La Gonave, Haiti, Relief Efforts

May 04, 2011 - Recently, we had the honor to assist the Association Amis Des Enfants de L'ile de La Gonave (A.A.E.) , and Sailors Without Borders in their volunteer relief efforts to build a school, provide shoes and clothing, and bring hope and help to the children of La Gonave, the largest offshore island in Haiti.

Association Amis des Enfants de La Gonave is a non-denominational, non-political association. It is based in Anse a’ Galets, where they rent a school building from Wesley church. A.A.E. carried out post earthquake repairs to the school buildings, built a ferro-cement water tank and a wall with soil-filled plastic bottles, while offering the community free of charge training sessions in these constructions as well as agricultural cultivations, vetiver, water awareness and earthquake-resistant bamboo construction and silviculture.

Electricity to this area was cut in 1987, roads and sewerage were never built, and water resources are non-existent. In this heat, food perishes in a few hours, IF and WHEN there is food. Importing from mainland Haiti is financially prohibitive.

A.A.E. also installed a solar electrical system at Anse-à-Galets, in addition to attempting to repair the two wind generators installed there a few years ago. The also installed a HughesNet satellite Internet system. The HughesNet system was intended to be the first A.A.E. project to help generate income by setting up a public WiFi hot spot. However, several problems delayed completion of the install.

The HughesNet system, which had initially been activated in the United States, was having problems because it could no longer receive signal in Haiti from the US satellite. There was also a recurring problem with the electrical system damaging key system components, as well as the instability of the pole holding the HughesNet dish. The on site crew from Sailors Without Borders was able to make critcal system repairs, and we were able to remotely reconfigure the HughesNet system to restore satellite Internet service.

Here are links to a video about Sailors Without Borders amnd their relief efforts for the citizens of Haiti:

General Terms, Conditions and Disclaimers
a - Monthly Data Allowance and Usage: Like cell phone data plans, all satellite Internet systems provide a data allowance. The Gen5 system provides a monthly data allowance from 8AM to 2AM to handle regular daily usage, and a extra allowance from 2AM to 8AM to handle computer and application software updates and manually-scheduled downloads. For more information, please read the Gen5 Fair Access Policy. Please note that all users on a system will share this data allowance, and certain applications such as streaming video (YouTube, Netflix, Hulu, Amazon Prime, Roku, AppleTV, GoogleTV, Dish Network or DirecTV VOD/Video on-Demand, etc.), streaming audio services (Online Radio, Pandora, Spotify, podcasts, etc.), and peer-to-peer file sharing programs can consume large amounts of data in a short period of time. To better calculate your data use for any of these applications, here is a link to a handy online Data Use Calculator:

No Hard Data Caps or Mandatory Overage Charges - Customers who exceed their monthly Service Plan Data Allowance will still be able to connect at reduced speeds, which may be as low as or lower than 1 Mbps until your next billing period. There are no mandatory overage charges. Your data allowance will be refilled and full service restored at the end of your service month, or you can purchase additional blocks of Data to immediately restore full service whenever needed; $5 for 500MB, $9 for 1GB and $16 for 2GB. To get maximum use of your data allowance, Gen5 also provides a free Usage Meter, enabling you to instantly monitor how much data allowance you have left, and a "Download Manager" that enables you to schedule downloads for software updates and other large files during early-morning hours to use Bonus Data and not your Anytime Data Allowance.

b Gen5 Service Coverage, Speeds and Availability: Gen5 Satellite reception requires a clear, unobstructed view at about a 38° elevation towards the southern sky, and usage is subject to the Gen5 Fair Access Policy. When you connect to the Internet using the Gen5 service, the upload and download speeds you experience will vary based on a variety of factors including the configuration of your computer; the number of concurrent users; network or Internet congestion; the speed of the Web sites you are accessing; and other factors. Stated speeds and uninterrupted use of service are not guaranteed. All satellite communications performance may become impaired or unavailable due to inclement weather, snow buildup on the dish, atmospheric conditions and sun interference. During peak hours, actual upload and download speeds will likely be lower than speeds indicated. For more information, please see the Gen5 Fair Access Policy.

c $0 Upfront Equipment or Installation Fees - $99 Instant rebate applies to the Lease of a new Gen5 system. Not applicable with the Purchase option. The Gen5 Lease offer requires credit approval. Monthly equipment lease fee of $14.99 per month will be added to monthly service.

d SAVE $20/mo. to $30/mo. for the First 12 Months - Offer represents a $20 to $30 savings per month for the first 12 months to new subscribers only. Savings offer valid on all service plans. You can upgrade or downgrade your service plan at any time during your contract without a fee or penalty. After 12 months, all plans revert back to the standard monthly fee. $14.99 monthly equipment lease fee may apply.

e DIRECTV Discount - $10/mo. discount on Gen5 service for 12 months available to new or existing DIRECTV subscribers. You must maintain DIRECTV service or you will lose the discount. DIRECTV service must be at the same physical address as the HughesNet service.

g $100 Mail-in Rebate Offer - $100 Mail-in Rebate applies to new HughesNet subscribers only who order service from El Dorado Networks, and also order new DIRECTV or DISH Network service from El Dorado Networks at the same time.

Rebate Form must be received before 09/30/17 to qualify. Please allow 6 to 8 weeks to process rebate claim. Visit Gen5 Rebate Center for details.

NOTE: In order to qualify for these additional bundled incentives and discounts, new DIRECTV or Dish Network TV service must be ordered along with your HughesNet service. If you have already ordered Gen5 service, please call us as soon as possible if you decide to also add TV service.

h Service Commitment, Cancellation, and Early Termination Fees - All Gen5 Service Plans require a 24-month service commitment. The Gen5 Lease offer requires credit approval. Monthly equipment lease fee of $14.99 per month will be added to monthly service on the lease option. Fees for early termination on either the lease- or purchase-option apply: Before Installation, the amount collected at time of order will be refunded and the order cancelled. If you cancel after installation but before the end of your 24–month term commitment, you will be charged a Service Termination Fee of up to $400. The exact amount of the Service Termination Fee will be $400 for the first ninety (90) days after activation of the HughesNet Service. Thereafter, the amount will decrease by $15 per month for each month of completed active Service. Further, you must return your HughesNet modem, power supply, and the outdoor radio within 45 days of cancellation date or be charged an additional $300 Unreturned Equipment Fee. The antenna itself does not need to be removed or returned. You will be responsible for all costs associated with removing the equipment.

To cancel your HughesNet service, you would contact HughesNet directly. If you selected the lease option, they will send you a postage-paid shipping box to return the indoor modem and outdoor radio. You will not be reimbursed for your first month of service or lease fees, nor for any upfront fees for non-standard installation charges or equipment purchased. This cancellation policy is offered by HughesNet only, and subject to change at any time.

Vacation Holds: - If you're going to be away for extended periods, HughesNet allows allows you to temporarily suspend your Internet service. A "Vacation Hold" will allow you to suspend service for up to six months per year, in two-month increments. If the vacation hold is within the two-year contract period, the contract termination date will be extended by the same number of months that the service is placed on hold. You can call HughesNet at any time to start or stop your vacation hold.

Initial Billing and AutoPay - HughesNet requires a valid credit or debit card be placed on file at the time of order. The credit or debit card you provide will be charged on the day your order is placed for your selected Service Plan, equipment & installation fees if any, as well as any additional options that you choose, minus any promotional offers or discounts. State and local taxes are not included in these fees but will be charged on the day of install. You will be automatically enrolled for Auto Bill Pay using the same credit/debit card used for placing your order, and HughesNet will then charge your subsequent months of service each month at approximately 30 days after your installation date. After your service is activated, you may then opt for EFT funds transfer from your checking account, or you can request paper billing with a mailed statement for an additional $5/mo. If your order is cancelled before installation, please allow up to 10 business days from the date your order is cancelled to receive a refund to your credit card for any upfront charges.

i Specialized Applications - Some specialized applications may work over HughesNet Gen5 but results are not guaranteed, nor will HughesNet provide Technical Support for their installation or troubleshooting. These applications include:
Online Gaming: Many types of strategy and turn-based online games may work with Gen5 service but the majority of real-time, multiplayer (high-twitch / rapid-response/ first-person shooter) games that people play on Wii, Xbox Live and PlayStation will not work over any satellite Internet service due to the higher latency (delay). Overall performance of any network-connected game system or device is not guaranteed.
Virtual Private Networking (VPN): Remote server applications such as business VPN connections over Gen5 may work but are not guaranteed, and speeds may be reduced by as much as 50% to 75% or more when using these applications. We recommend you visit our office in Diamond Springs first and test your laptop or PC on our HughesNet system here to verify compatibility.
Camera/Surveillance/Home-automation Systems: Due to the use of advanced IPV6 Internet Protocols by the HughesNet system, many types of conventional, Internet-based camera, surveillance systems and home automation systems may not work, or may not be accessible from remote viewing locations. We recommend the use of IPV6-enabled equipment and/or cloud-based systems using an intermediary server, although performance and results are not guaranteed. If you're considering installing such equipment, please check with us first for recommendations.
Voice Over IP Internet (VoIP): Third-party Voice Over Internet telephone services, such as SKYPE, GoogleVoice, MagicJack, OOMA and Vonage may work but are not guaranteed, and HughesNet cannot provide Technical Support for these services. Only the Gen5 "Voice" VoIP Service is optimized to work over Gen5.
Feel free to visit our office to test your applications and equipment on our system first.
