What Is the Bonus Zone (2am-8am) on Hughesnet?

Hughesnet’s Bonus Zone (2am-8am) was a period of time during off-peak hours (2am to 8am local time) when customers could use an additional 50GB/month of plan data.With the new Hughesnet, all online activity between 2am and 8am doesn’t count against your Priority Data amount..

Previously called Hughesnet Bonus Zone and Bonus Bytes, acts as an incentive for users to conduct their heavier downloads during less congested hours of the day.

A Win-Win for All Customers

It’s true that Hughesnet does not believe in hard data limits. Your Hughesnet internet is now unlimited! You will not be charged extra fees or lose your internet connection if you reach your monthly allowance. But satellite internet providers need to make sure that customers are using their share of data fairly. This is why you may experience slower speeds during high-traffic periods if you happen to reach your monthly data allowance.

From 2am-8am Hughesnet allows users to save their Priority Data and enjoy fast internet speeds all month long! It also helps to free up bandwidth during peak hours, so all customers can enjoy high-speed internet during the day. Take advantage of this time (2am-8am) to stay within your monthly Priority Data allowances and maximize your internet performance.

How Can I Get Access to the Bonus Zone (2am-8am)?

The (2am-8am) block of time is available to all Hughesnet customers automatically. You don’t have to activate or pay anything to take advantage of this additional data. The hours are from 2am to 8am, your local time.

All you have to do is conduct downloads during this time period. During these hours, your internet service will automatically save your priority data instead of using the data allowance from the service plan you’re paying for.

How to Best Take Advantage of the Hughesnet Bonus Zone (2am-8am)

We recommend using this bonus data for activities that take a lot of bandwidth but don’t require you to be online. Use it to download large files such as movies, video games, or system updates for your computer. These downloads typically eat up a lot of data from your service plan.

Don’t worry, you will not have to wake up in the middle of the night to start downloads. You can schedule them in advance to occur automatically.

Schedule software updates for off-peak hours by going into your computer’s system settings. For browser downloads, you can install a download manager onto your computer and connect it to an extension on your web browser.

For example, FlashGet is a free software that allows you to schedule downloads to your computer instead of having them occur instantly. Installing Google Chrome’s Downloaders extension will connect the software to your web browser. Just select a time for your downloads to start, and they’ll be installed and ready for you when you wake up!

Using the 2am-8am time block previously called Hughesnet Bonus Zone for off-peak downloads will allow you to retain more of your monthly priority data allowance. That way, you can use your service data for the activities you enjoy
