Do you have no other options that you could go to, like, today, or very soon?

Wow, asking HN customers to leave makes no sense to me. I thought they wanted more customers not less.

I'm a subscriber, as you may remember.   If a disgruntled customer has other options, it'd make sense to take them.

After the Echostar 24 satellite launches, HughesNet will likely offer newer service and larger plans, but I wouldn't expect them to be any larger than around 100GB or so, and with speeds of up to, perhaps, 50Mbps or so.

 

Starlink and the other LEO offerings will no doubt put a dent in HughesNet's GEO business, as in them losing some customers, but that will likely be of benefit to those staying with HughesNet.  I also expect that it will not hurt HughesNet as much as people may think.  As well, Echostar, HughesNet's parent company, is already working with one of the LEO companies to provide their ground stations.  

 

Lastly, please refrain from name calling in this Community.  It is immature and unnecessary.

Was HN the only service available in your area.

The LEOs will kill HughesNet (and Viasat).  From what I understand, they plan to offer higher data plans, higher speeds, and far FAR less ping times than Hughes do.

 

Don't know about price, though. Haven't heard a peep on that.

I believe HN is involved in the whole LEO thing, so no.

I haven't seen HughesNet's name involved in any of the LEO articles I've read.  I could have missed something, though.  But as far as I know, HN is not part of it...unless they are leasing capacity.

They're involved in the ground based architecture for OneWeb.
