Ping / Latency degrading HughesNet service

The speedtest shows Hughesnet ping is showing HIGH Latencu (600+)  Spectrum shows a Latency time of less than 50..
Wny reasons why Spectrum should show a ping of about 50, yet HughesNet, 600+?
Wnat is a good course-of-action to fix this problem?
Thanks in advance.

Re: Ping / Latency degrading HughesNet service

Spectrum is cable. Hughesnet is satellite.  Satellite internet has high latency.  Can't fix this because it depends on the laws of physics.
