I've been reading all the Horror stories about HughsNet, and all I have to say is I've been with them when they were called DirecPC. That's when we had a one way Sat. connection for (I think Upload) and Landline for (I think Download).
I Beta tested both Software and Hardware, and for that I got all equiptment free. I think this was close to 18 years ago, and now that I am one of there customers and no sign of DSL or Cable in the near future, me and my ole DW6000 will just hang out until it burns up! I refuse to upgrade and dealing with unprofessional people in all departments of there service oft times makes me want to back to Dial UP!
I live on the High Mesa of New Mexico and while the wondrous views off sets my issues with Hughes. I wonder why no one has ever called the FCC about how HughesNet does business? I read last month that the FCC just jumped on ComCast for ramping back speeds, and they had to pay fines and fix the issue....(please correct that if I'm wrong!)
So can't the FCC jump in here, if enough people complain, or am I just hanging on a greasy rope.
If someone out there can shed some light on this, hay jump on in...
So I remain in a what we refer to out here as the BLACK HOLE... no DSL, no Cable, no Wi Fi, only Satellite!
So in closing the old saying holds true... "Buyer Beware!"
OK! Now it's 2013 (10 years Later) and I finally was able to get wireless and leave Hughes Net were it belongs, in the trash. And that my friends was a true task as they attempted continued Charges on my Auto Pay. Soooo, not wanting to get anymore stressed out then I was, I just called my CC Company and told them I disputed the charges and to stop all payments to this company, and the reason for it. They did better then that, not only had all charges stopped but they got back my monies taken buy this dead beat company took!
So folks stay away from this Company, if you can't get highspeed or Broadband just be patient and never stop looking for it in your area, keep checking the small Ma & Pa ISP's that are springing up! It's not worth dealing with HughesNet who have raked up Billions of dollars on the backs of the rural consumer!
And by the way, since I owned all the eqiptment, I may try and sell it, or if I can't, I think I'll make the Dish into a Bird Bath..... HA!
