HughesNet Satellite Internet Service Informative - Don't Even Think About It !!
I love the rural location I live in, however, the DSL lines stop about a mile from my location. Unfortunately, HughesNet Satellite Internet Service is an option I've had to live with because there is no other viable provider for faster internet access. DO NOT USE HUGHESNET UNLESS YOU ARE IN THE SAME SITUATION. I cannot wait until the day I can fire them. (I considered WildBlue but their Fair Access Policy is worse than HughesNet - 30 day rolling . Should you go over your usage amount you may not have fast access for up to 30 days!!!) Forget tech support at Hughesnet - all the techs sound like they are first cousins of Ghandi but tell you their names are Rachel, Todd, John. Do they really think they are tricking you?
Expect to apologize for not understanding, and, asking them to repeat themselves more times than you thought possible. Both speed and uptime are sketchy - you will be productively frustrated. My rating is thumbs down!
