Re: Skyway USA current problem 11/15/11 The offer, we were told, is that we get free installation along with a $99 mail-in rebate that we can use to offset the Setup charge of $100. Any installer can offer that, as I understand it, since everything goes directly through Hughesnet ultimately. You can either take advantage of it by calling them direct or calling a local installer of your choice and getting the special through them. The monthly charges for the package we chose was $50 per month, plus there's the $10/month equipment lease.
Hope that helps.
If you hear of anything better, let us know here.
Have any Skyway users considered swithching to Starband or any other satellite providers besides Hughsnet?

Doesn't sound like you're getting any special consideration at all. Those are standard everyday terms for new Hughesnet lease agreements. That means you don't own the equipment, but pay an additional $10/mo lease charge on top of the regular monthly subscription charge.
Check the various satellite provider websites, you might do better simply writing off SkyWay as a bad investment, and dealing directly with a new provider. But among them stay away from the one-way providers. Despite the hype, two-way is almost always no more expensive (and far more convenient) than any one-way provider in the world.
