Re: I want to CANCEL

Amanda, 

I just reviewed my account and noticed that data tokens were added... however, there is a charge to apply them to my account. Was that what you intended?

Re: I want to CANCEL

Thanks. I was actually told by a rep to post my complaints here as corporate people review the posts and it's the only way to get any results. I am waiting for her to get the call. It probably will take a bit as I started this service back in September or October

That definitely wouldn't have been what she intended.  Have they not been automatically added to your Token Bytes Available?  If not, do you see any under the free or prepaid section?

If you're referencing my post, it wasn't directed at you.  My post was to the person who is doing nothing but adding complaints to this thread while not even starting their own thread to get any help.  You're fine.

Re: I want to CANCEL

Hi tjmarshall,

 

I always forget to mention you might get a bunch of emails about an order regarding tokens, which you can disregard. If you're trying to "use" the tokens through our website, app or the Usage Meter then you will be prompted to purchase tokens since there technically are no tokens on your account. When we add the tokens from our side they automatically go into your Token Bucket and 'kick in' immediately when you exceed your monthly data (such as right now). Any unused tokens will rollover to the next month and sit there until the data has been exceeded again.

 

I've received the results of your sales call and I've sent over some additional questions, however here is what I have so far:

 

-    The customer does say that they would be doing streaming with the service.  The agent responds with the streaming disclosure, stating that with the 20 GB plan the customer could expect about 30 hours of standard definition streaming per month.  They go on to tell the customer that if they use up all the data, they wouldn’t be charged overage fees or shut off, but that the streaming quality may be impacted. 


-    When pitching the package the agent recommends the 30 GB plan since the customer was going to be using streaming.  The agent does inform the customer that they could go to the 50 GB plan if they find themselves using it more.  


-    The agent reads all terms and conditions correctly.  The customer asks about the bonus data, and the agent does respond that the customer would have the extra data to use for streaming if they happened to be awake during the bonus hours. 


-    The customer did not have any further questions regarding streaming with the service before consenting to the order.
 

After I've received the rest of the information I requested I will get back to you with that too. Just a quick question  - who was your previous internet service provider?

 

Thank you

Re: I want to CANCEL

I had Mediacom, but moved to an area where they dont service. 

Also, do not believe I have ever actually used 30 hours of streaming since getting this service. The data goes really quickly doing even the most minor task online.

I will check the token issue again. Thanks

The 30 hours with the 20GB plan is really more what's possible that likely, as that number is really more for someone who would primarily be doing streaming and not much else.  Like if you only had a Smart TV connected to the service and didn't use it for anything else.  Like on the site it shows a few different things that can be done with a given amount of data, but it's a this, OR this, OR this type thing, and anything you do other than streaming will take data away from that total time of streaming capability.  So a combination of activities will lessen the highest possible amount of each one.

In order to figure out what is using your data so quickly some devices have their own data tallying programs/apps, and you can download programs/apps for many devices that don't have them.  For Windows, the most often recommended program is Glasswire.  It's free, thought it does have a free trial of the Premium program that reverts to the free version after a certain number of days, which I believe is either ten or fifteen.  It will monitor and tally all of the data that is entering and exiting your computer through the net, and it will tell you exactly what on your computer is using it, and how much.  You can also narrow it to anywhere from a month to hours, and everything in between, and you can even see how much data a specific host or website is using during a given time that you choose.  This way, if your browser is using a lot of data, you can see what website(s) is the culprit.  You can download Glasswire here.  They also have it for Android based devices at the Google Play Store, though I have yet to try the Android version on my phone.  The Android version is very new. 

 

If you do download and install it on your Windows computer, make sure to set your options to "Incoming & Outgoing" and "External" so that only the data downloading and uploading to and from your computer is being counted rather than the data being transferred back and forth within your computer. 

 

Glasswire is a VERY helpful tool when it comes to figuring out what's using data, and if you regularly use a Windows based computer I'd recommend installing it and using it.   It only measures the data on the computer it's installed on, so if you use more than one Windows based computer you'd want to install it on those, too.

Re: I want to CANCEL

Sure, I understand. However, the service is so inconsistent and spotty that I am definitely not able to do what I used to be able to do for half the price. 

It's been so bad lately, that I opted to upgrade my cell phone data just to accomplish my regular tasks as the internet is not dependable/run out of data by the 15th of the month. Does that make sense?

Re: I want to CANCEL

Hello tjmarshall,

 

(note: apparently I had this in my drafts since Friday, my apologies)

 

I received the last bit (service comparison: faster & more reliable?):

 

"The customer had moved recently and did not have internet service at the moment except for their data on their phone. The agent does compare HughesNet’s data to the customer’s phone data by stating that it is better because there are no overage charges. There wasn’t any comparison in relation to any previous service providers (aside from the customers phone data) since the customer did not have any other options of providers in the area. The agent instead referred to the package as having the speeds and data that would meet their needs, and recommended a higher data plan to back up those claims based off what the customer planned to do online."

 

If the issue of reliability can be solved, in addition to optimizing data usage efficiency, would you be willing to allow us the opportunity to help?

Re: I want to CANCEL

I apologize for the delayed reply. I have had a family emergency. At this point, I feel so negatively towards Hughes, that I do want to just cancel the service. Please advise
