I inquired about an upgrade to my HughesNet account and received the response, below on 9 November from Jackie Williams, HughesNet Support. The response indicated that I could upgrade to Gen5 20gb for $59.99. No where in the response below did HughesNet indicate that the $59.99 for 20 gb was for a limited time.Today, I called to upgrade to this plan: Gen5 20gb for the price of $59.99. Although, your representative was very nice, she quoted the price of $69.99. I explained the email I had received, she put me on hold, and then quoted the price of $59.99 for 6 months. Again, I told her that was not what the email said and even provided the Case ID: 116602229. She again put me on hold and came back quoting the price of $59.99 for 1 year and then I could callback after the year ended for the $59.99 price. Again, I explained this was not acceptable and the reasons why it was not… including no where in the email did it hint that the price of $59.99 was for a “limited” or “temporary” price.I believe Hughesnet needs to honor the price as indicated below without any hitches or call backs.Email from HughesNetThank you for contacting HughesNet Support.
