Value for money:
(ratings match consensus)
There are no other options in my area for Broadband or I would jump on it.
I've got the basic package at $60.00 a month.
Ordering the equipment was flawless, but the installer didn't ground the dish right. Found this out a couple of years later when I had another installer to come out to realign the dish. He fixed the ground then.
My first equipment was the DW4000 in 2003. Since then I have upgraded Modems 3 times and currently have the HN7000S Modem.
The good experiences is that it beats Dial-Up. The bad is Tech Support is worthless.
As of 12/8/12 I had Wildblue/Exede installed and dumped Hughesnet.
Hughesnet had gotten almost unusable during the day light hours and it was this way for the last 6 to 8 Months I had it. About the only time I could get anything done on the Internet was late at night when most people were in bed.
After I've had Exede for a while I'll give a review of it, but so far I'm very happy with it.
