I called customer service tonight to find out the process to terminate. They indicated the case needed to be escalated to tier 4 engineering before they can cancel my service without incurring a termination penalty. That was done back in January and apparently closed 1/30/16 without resolving the problem. I was told they are opening a new case and need to go through the process again. Any chance you can find out what is really going on? Based on our last conversation, engineers were aware of the problem and working on it. I would rather not terminate service if I can get it fixed or at least performing at some decent level. I invested in $400 worth of equipment that will be useless.
A few things have transpired since Friday. I have cancelled service after learning they would not be able to fix the speed issue within a reasonable period of time - likely due to overcrowding on beam from what I understand. They were generous enough to apply a credit to cover the termination fee, but in doing so they erroneously kept the credit ($85) that was given to me for the technician that was demanded by Hughesnet to verify it was not an equipment issue (back in January). I was told they would cover the cost of the technician since it was verified on site that is was a system problem on the Hughes end. I have made two attempts and elevated the refund issue to a supervisor without any success. Now they are apparently unwilling to refund the amount with the final closeout of my account and are instead applying it towards the termination fee.
They have instructed me to send my purchased equipment back for a refund of $200, but will not provide me a RMA number or shipping container similar to the leased equipment return. I am skeptical they will refund the equipment and again apply any credit against the termination fee. Can you please intercede and confirm what is the current status of the existing credit balance? I feel my AMEX should be credited back for the technician fee and the equipment credit. Can I actually expect a partial refund on the equipment or am I just wasting more time and shipping charges?
Can you also please send me copies of the invoices from January through the close out of the account? the link is not working that was provided in the email notification of the closeout invoice. Thanks
