California Wildfires Affect Internet Service

Press release from: Satellite Family

Laguna Niguel, CA, October 24 2007 - The recent California fires have cut off communication and internet service for some customers of cable, DSL, and dial-up service. Fires raging areas such as San Diego, Orange County, Malibu, and the Inland Empire have destroyed homes, downed power lines, and ruined telecommunications, severing all forms of contact for families and businesses. Crews throughout the fire ravaged areas are currently working to restore power, telephone, and internet service, but with so much destruction it will be long before widespread internet service is restored. Many communication providers will not begin to make service calls to homes or businesses in the recently burned areas for days (possibly weeks), creating problems for families and businesses who primarily get their news via the internet and further hinders their ability to contact friends and family through email and voice-over-ip (VOIP) phones.

In several of the wildfire areas, homes were previously denied broadband by internet service providers because they lived in too rural areas of California. As a result they chose HughesNet, which is available nationwide, as their high speed internet provider. Because satellite internet service is not dependent upon telephone or cable lines, these HughesNet customers did not lose their internet connectivity, allowing them to continue communicating with loved ones.

While covering the fire many noticed trucks and emergency response vehicles that had small satellites on their roof – a similar variation of HughesNet for emergency response communications vehicles.

During these tragic and destructive fires, the technically independent internet service provided by HughesNet offers peace of mind to homes and businesses. For those who may be unable to receive conventional broadband internet service or need backup internet access, HughesNet satellite internet is always available.
