Skyway USA Satellite Internet Service Complaint - Terrible Misrepresented Internet Service

Review by badrhino on 2008-09-16
KENTUCKY -- The satellite internet service provided by Skyway USA is worthless. The signal is poor and download speeds are not much better than dial-up. Tech help in setting up the system is a joke. The dial-up number given me for upload to the satellite was a toll number which I found when I got my $98 phone bill. I called 4 times about this. Each time I was told the problem would be investigated but promised return calls never happened.

I also never received the promised $100 rebate on equipment. Save you money and stick with your dial-up!

Yet another satellite complaint - the list goes on and on and on. There's just nothing positive to be said about satellite today. They can't even provide simple satellite internet service either. Probably part of DirecTV the way they are taking your money. Hoep you can rid yourself of them soon and get your money back. (VH)

I've never heard anything good about using a dish service for internet access.

Hughes made a good run at satellite internet. Never really went well due to terrible connection problems.

I finally got my rebate after 7 months and a complaint to the bbb of lexington ky. Now they have made their reasonable use policy even more ridiculous and the service is even less attractive. Don't buy Skyway......
