|By:, SA News Editor

Hughes Network Systems (NASDAQ:SATS) has rolled out its connectivity backup service for small businesses.

The HughesNet Internet Continuity Service is designed to keep bits flowing in and out of the businesses via satellite broadband anytime their terrestrial connection goes down (particularly important for credit card processing and Web services, among other uses).

The system uses a Wi-Fi modem, antenna, radio and failover router to automate the process. Businesses can purchase or lease equipment and pay a subscription for the service.

Download speeds measure 25 Mbps with upload speeds of 3 Mbps, starting at $39.99/month.
