    Other than buying a DVD or downloading it using the MediaCreationTool, there are no other options at this moment
    Please also be aware that Windows 10 shares a LOT of information by default over Internet.
    your data volume can easily be consumed by all the data that (by default) is shared.
    You'll need to make several changes to Windows 10 to limit the amount of data being used by the OS only.

    Good Luck....

    You could have a friend or relative download the ISO and burn it to a DVD for you.
    Harpert brings up a good point, though. Windows 10 will send and receive a great amount of data.

    download the ISO after 2am EST as HughesNet allows unlimited download between 2am-7am EST

    Another method, which I have used is to call MS and explain that your IP is limited and that you have several PC's you want to upgrade, but you can't because of your HughesNet 200MB per Day data cap and request a DVD.. After being a little forceful in my request, customer service sent me the windows 8.1 pro upgrade disks, no charge..
