I want out of this service!!!

After the first month with great speed and a gift of unlimited data. We burn our data in 2 days!!!! 50$ for 2 days??? We use 6 G on our cell plan and can make it 26-28 days. I want to cancel my service after one month!!! I feel ripped off. I feel scammed! Bait in switched after the first month! Help!!

To cancel you need to call 866-347-3292.  Be aware that cancellation fees may apply.

My mom was also wanting to cancel and was told it would cost her 200.00 Where is the contract? She never signed anything. What good is 80.00 a month if you can't even get on the internet at all????

When you sign up for service, you will be notified of your contract in one of two ways at a minimum.  When you call, the sales agent goes over a brief summary of the contract, including cancelation costs, and agents make disclaimers depending on previous answers the customer gave them.  If the customer provides a valid email address during the sales call, they will get an email from Hughesnet that contains a link to the contract in full.

If you sign up online, you are required to submit an email address, and you are told point blank about the contract at several points in the sign up process.

The last time I had a terminal go through its activation, it actually brought up contractual information before it would allow me to go online.  The moment that the terminal sees you select "Accept" is the moment you agree in full to the contract.

In addition, regarding the sales call, I believe it is asked if you agree to the terms read by agent.

Re: I want out of this service!!!

You are absolutely correct. We live too far out from any cable or high speed anything. Satellite high speed seemed like our answer. That first month was great and who would cancel during the first month during those speeds. Nice marketing touch there Hughes. Still there is the technology available to provide highspeed internet and it is in the hands of crooks. We need to contact lawmakers because Hugesnet will not do anything. Looking into another satellite provider myself. Good Luck
