This page contains the current Satellite Based Commissioning (SBC) Files and related links and information for the Hughes and HughesNet HN7000s and other Ku-band and Ka-band Satellite Internet Systems!

The HughesNet SBC Files contain up-to-date satellite frequencies and parameters required for commissioning HughesNet Satellite Internet Systems and bringing them online!  You should update the SBC file in your modem to the latest version prior to attempting the registration/commissioning process!  If your modem has been powered down or offline for several weeks or months, it’s possible you will need to install the new SBC file and re-run through registration/commissioning process to get back online!

This process should only be attempted by certified installers or as directed by a certified installer.  For more information and support, be sure to visit our product support section!

NOTE: You will need a “zip” program such as WinZip, 7-Zip, WinRar or equivalent in order to open the archived files below after downloading!
Zip features are typically included in MS Windows XP,7,8, and 10 Operating Systems!
