The perfect App for the HughesNet Gen4 Satellite Network. Monitor internet usage in real time and save money by staying within fair access policies. In the event you do need to go over, conviently PURCHASE restore tokens right from this easy to use iPhone or iPad application!
This app shows your available AnyTime and Bonus data along with any aditional bandwidth you may have purchased with restore tokens. It also has a Data Rate bar chart. This chart is color coded dynamically based on your remaining data and your refill date.
A Today Screen plugin is available for quick reference to this information from anywhere. The Today Screen plugin is an optional In App purchase. You do not need this plugin for the App to work.
I am in no way affiliated with HughesNet. This App has been tested against the HughesNet HT1100, HT1000, and the HN9000 Gen4 Modems. To determine your modem, go to www.systemcontrolcenter.com.
Setup: In the "Address" field of the setup screen, type in the IP address of your modem. In nearly every case it is either "www.systemcontrolcenter.com" or 192.168.0.1. The app connects to your modem and gets account information from that. No need to sign in or type in account numbers.
NOTE: If you just recently installed your HughesNet satellite dish, it takes about a week for HughesNet to begin metering your data usage. During this week, the App will work and it correctly indicates that your data is getting reset -- Enjoy the extra data!
If you have any questions please read the FAQ on the support link or contact me directly.

Ratings and Reviews
It is a really great tool to keep watch on how much data I have used and how much data I have left. I would love to see a couple improvements that would give the app 5 Stars. The data meter has to be updated each time I want to view how much data is being used instead of constantly monitoring it. Another improvement I really would find very helpful would be if the data monitoring graph would actually show the same color as the Purchased data coloring while that data is being used and show the color of the Free-Extended data when it is being used. It gets a bit frustrating at times when you're not sure if you are using up all your data or if the Free-Extended data is being used. Otherwise thumbs up and thanks to Hughes Net for providing this tool in the first place!😎
Bought it with some trepidation after reading negative reviews and sure enough it wasn't correctly showing my usage day-to-day. It didn't make sense at the Hughes tools definitely showed my usage, but I noticed their monthly summary had same issue. A tech support call to Hughes turned up the fact that you're first 14-24 days are "bandwidth relaxed" and sure enough once I got past that boundary the app worked exactly as expected. I suspect Hughes does that to get customers past the 30 day money back guarantee.
Exactly what you need!
I don't understand the one star reviews on this app. It works exactly as advertised. The data usage updates immediately and the Meter screen gives you a perfect snapshot of how much data you have left as well as how long until your monthly cycle resets. The token buying process is quick and easy. There are 4 of us in the family, we all have this app on our phones and it works perfectly for all of us. Great tool. If you have Hughes Net I highly recommend this app.
