Meet Ocala's oldest and largest satellite and antenna dealer at local festivals

The fall season is just around the corner, and for Central Florida residents that means one thing:

 It's Fall Festival Time!

Ocala's local satellite and antenna dealer, International Satellite & Antenna Service is no stranger to the local festivals in the Ocala area. They have been setting up, answering questions and educating area residents on Satellite TV, Satellite Internet  and HDTV Antenna technology since 1983.

Many customers enjoy speaking with International's technical staff that works these events. "We answer many questions from curious customers that are tired of paying the ever rising rates with cable TV" said John Pearce, founder and President of International Satellite & Antenna Service.

" We go way back in the satellite industry. We started in 1983 installing the large 10-12 foot satellite dishes." said Pearce, " Back then everything was free. In 1994 we even won a Blur Ribbon at the Marion County Fair for our 8 FT Patio Umbrella n"Satellite Dish" display."

"In 1994 we installed the first DirecTV in Central Florida, 6 months before they were available to the general public. In 1996 we added DISH Network to our line up, then in 1999 we started to offer Satellite Internet services to residents that lived in rural areas that couldn't get cable or DSL. We have  been recognized by DISH, DIRECTV, WildBlue (Now Exede) and HughesNet as one of the Top 100 Dealers in the Nation."

"Today, because of our track record in the industry, we are a national retailer, meaning we can live schedule in all 50 states for all of the satellite services we offer. Outside of Central Florida we use the network installers, but in our home market, we use only employee installer techs."

Be sure to  look for International  Satellite & Antenna Service at your local fairs and festivals.

HughesNet Gen5 Delivers True FCC-Defined Broadband, Attracts New Customers In Every Continental U.S. State

Germantown, Md., June 5, 2017—Hughes Network Systems, LLC (HUGHES) today announced its recently launched HughesNet Gen5 satellite Internet service has reached a major milestone in just two months – now serving more than 100,000 homes and small businesses, including both new subscribers and upgrades, and subscribers in every continental U.S. state have been connected to the service.

Launched in late March 2017, new customers to HughesNet Gen5 are experiencing faster speeds, more data, built-in Wi-Fi and an overall improved Internet experience. HughesNet Gen5 is the first and only U.S. satellite Internet service to offer Federal Communications Commission (FCC) defined broadband speeds – 25 Mbps download and 3 Mbps upload – from coast-to-coast.

“The new HughesNet Gen5 is meeting the need for high-speed Internet in households and small businesses across the country – especially in areas underserved or unserved by ‘traditional’ wired Internet,” said Mike Cook, executive vice president at Hughes. “Everyone has the right to high- speed Internet access and Hughes is proud to bring fast, reliable Internet to all households coast-to-coast across America, no matter where they live or work.”

Early customer responses show they are enjoying higher satisfaction and improved performance from the new HughesNet Gen5 service. According to Joe K. from Illinois, “I’ve seen a big boost in performance with HughesNet Gen5, giving me the true broadband speeds I’ve wanted. The overall experience is just a lot better.”

HughesNet is America’s #1 choice for satellite Internet with more than one million subscribers nationwide. HughesNet Gen5 is available in a variety of affordable consumer and business plans to suit customer’s specific needs. Plans range from 10 to 250 GB/month of data with the same fast speeds of 25 Mbps on every plan. Additional features include: 

• Built-in Wi-Fi to easily connect wireless devices
• No hard data limits – if monthly plan data is exceeded, service continues at a reduced speed until the next billing cycle
• Video Data Saver to watch more videos using less data
• Bonus Zone – 50 GB of free data per month to use during off-peak hours (2 a.m. - 8 a.m.)

HughesNet Gen5, recently named the winner of a Gold Stevie® Award in the Consumer Services category in the 15th annual American Business Awards, is available through a nationwide network of dealers and sales agents, as well as directly through www.HughesNet.com .
