Thanks for posting and welcome to the community! You are correct in that we do not change account ownership whenever a customer is on the lease program. The reason behind it being there is a credit check ran during the sales process, which binds the account to the person who the check was ran under. You can, however, switch account ownership if you purchase the equipment instead of leasing it, which doesn't require a credit check. The best option to get an account in your name would be to start a new HughesNet account.
