To cancel or not to cancel - Latency and connection issues non-stop

I dropped HN over 20 years ago because of CS issues. I came back literally just one month ago because my former provider was down for 8 solid days with no explaination. And believe me, it was with great hesitation! Since coming back to HN, it's been latency problems and inability to connect. I've got a service ticket in, but there's no ETA that engineering or advanced team can give regarding a resolution. My business is online and I need to be able to connect in order to work!! All I'm being told is "They're working on it". I understand programming issues can take a while to resolve but this is ridiculous. Discounts to my bill don't fix it, and don't earn my paycheck, people! I'm at the point of having to decide whether to try and stick this out, or go back to my old provider, and call in every 4 or 5 months, rather than every 4 or 5 days. I signed a contract for 24 months, but HughesNet is just not fulfilling their end of that contract.

You can cancel at any time, but you'd have to pay the ETF.  The reps here will work with you on that, but you have to work with them to maximise your service. 

I have been working with them for four weeks on this. They do not have a solution and do not know when they will have a solution. If I don't have a job, I don't have a paycheck to pay HughesNet. The service I am currently paying for is not the service I am receiving.

For reference, if you're a Business Subscriber, it's doubtful that the reps here will be able to help, as the help available here, with a few exceptions, is only for Residential Subscribers.  


If you're a Residential Subscriber, hopefully they'll be able to look into this for you.
