Solved! Go to Solution.
Lets see if we can somehow get you back on track.
Your first comment was to the effect of "I wish to cancel my sevice".
Answer: You can NOT cancel your service via the Community. It must be done by phone.
The number to do so is: (866) 347-3292
Your second comment was:. "Is hughsnet going to let me out of what is left on my contract?"
The anser again is .. Not likely and not without good reason and not without a good faith effort at troubleshooting the issue.
Your third comment was: "I can name off all kinds of reasons. Slow connection speeds. And by slow I am talking about 1mbs"
The answer is ... Anything can break .. if its broke, it needs to have the root cause determined. You have yet to do that within this topic. To do so we have to determine the baseline performance of your system under a controled set of conditions. I will post the procedure for doing so at the end of my reply.
Your fourth comment was: "I would like to see a copy of the contract I signed"
Answer: As stated to you previously your terminal could not have been registered and put into sevice without you having accepted the Subscriber Agreement at the time of installation. There is no actual "signature" but there is a digital signature obtained by the installer the time of modem registration.
You stated in part: 'My hole hughesnet experience has been less than sad. I should have known that this wasn't going to be good when the installer drilled a hole on accident threw my wall and just left it. When I contacted hughesnet about getting it fixed they never returned a call'
Installers are required to submit pictures of key areas of every install. I suggest that you post a photo of the hole that you feel the installer improperly drilled.
The forum Mods are at the Corporate level and can pull up the pictures submitted by the installer.
You also stated in part: " All I want is better service than a half a mbs speed and a hole in my wall fixed. I would be happy if they just sent me a box to send there stuff back and waive the etf. I am willing to work with hughesnet if they would be willing to work with "
Answer: You will not be let out of your contract unless a review of your sales call indicates that the service was not properly presented to you.
The hole in the wall can be reviewed and addressed after you post pictures of what you feel was done improperly.
As to "better service" we need to measure what your system performance levels are by doing a series of speed tests. That process will be outlined at the end of this reply.
As to performance we need to have you open the Modems SCC (System Control Center) at 192.168.0.1 and see if there are any current active error codes and to insure you are not in FAP.
If all is well there it is time to run a series of speed tests:
To help the Hughesnet Customer Service Reps get a head start on your speed concerns, you should create a testmy.net account and perform a batch of 3-5 tests during different parts of the day, all using a 12MB manual download test. Then share the account results link with us here. You can do so by clicking on "Results" and copying the URL in the address bar and pasting it into a reply post.
Please keep in mind that Hughesnet will only accept testmy.net and the official Hughesnet speed test results. Tests from other sites like speedtest.net are not accepted due to the compression technologies and latency that satellite deploys.
Most important points:
-perform the tests while signed into the testmy.net account
-do the tests while directly connected to the HughesNet modem with a LAN cable (NO ROUTER or Wireless devices)
-use the 12MB size download test file
-space each test at least 5 minutes apart
-post your results URL here, it may look something like http://testmy.net/quickstats/C0RR0SIVE
For a more in depth guide on running the tests, please visit: http://customer.kb.hughesnet.com/Pages/7001.aspx
To cancel service you need to call (866) 347-3292 and request that your account be closed. Please remember to return your Hughesnet Modem, and the transmitter if a lease customer, they are located on the dish otherwise you may face un-returned equipment fees.
Most likely not unless you can provide enough real reasoning and persuade the moderators.
Those are not legitimate reasons for being let out of contract as the contract states that speeds may be reduced due to network congestion.
I agree the service is horrible, but they will charge you the early termination fee and then give you a headache reading the script they have been given, without listening to a word you say.
