HughsNet Screw Wounded Soldier
Everything - Complaint
ELMIRA, NEW YORK -- My name is SSgt Johnson, a combat wounded veteran. We recently moved to NY, we are located a few miles outside the nearest city so we tried HughsNet because of our location.
The first month the Internet worked but absolutely no downloading or streaming. We used up our allotment of coins just trying to stream but never successful. I called there customer service and they said I would have to pay for a tech to come out but to first try buying a new router and moving it to a different location in the house. I went and bought 50 ft of Ethernet cable to move the new router. We were still unable to download or stream and the Internet was too slow to use. I called again and they said they would not send a tech out unless I paid for it.
We decided to try a different service provider and cancel HughsNet. They said we were contracted in and it didn't matter that the service never worked. We have to pay a 500 dollar cancellation fee and remove satellite from the roof ourselves to send it back to them. I fell while trying to take down the satellite and landed on my prosthetic that covers the amputated part of my arm.
AVOID HughsNet at all cost. Even if you get service from them they have a very low cap to how much Internet you can use. There customer service is atrosish and they will screw you every chance they get!!
