Packages offering high-speed Internet bundled with cable or digital voice service are also available.

HughesNet provides satellite Internet to customers in Moneta, Virginia, and pretty much anywhere with a clear line of sight to the satellite. An advantage of satellite Internet is that it's available to customers in rural or remote areas. The disadvantage is that data transfer speeds are considerably slower than cable, for example. HughesNet provides up to 2Mbps, which is 1/4 of a megabyte per second. Satellite Internet may be a viable alternative to those customers in parts of Moneta not serviced by cable or DSL providers.
