Not with Gen4, only old legacy 7000s system can do that.

No, all present Hughes systems use "spot beams" that require a user be within the footprint of that "beam".

Hughes no longer provides service to HN6000/7000 systems that are strictly line of sight except for users in Alaska.

There are "resellers" that will provide you with equipment and service but at a much higher cost than the legacy Hughes plans.

One place to check is http://www.montanasatellite.com/ among others.

The above is not a recommendation of one company or service over another and is intended only to give you a starting point in your search.

I assumed already a Gen4 customer, maybe not.

With three generations of service out there it is really hard to tell without details.

Hi rswam

Welcome to our community! Our members have answered correctly - we do not offer mobile systems for residential or business customers. Perhaps in the future... 🙂

Thanks
