Please read first before agreeing

I recently logged into the HughsNet customer service sight in my system controller. When I queried "View my Bills" I received the prompt "We are moving to a New Login Process. Complete the quick registration and you will be able to login to your HughesNet account with your existing Google, Windows Live, AOL or Hughes.net account." Under the 'Register Now' it states that you may still log in the old way, but using my old password did not work for me (although interestingly it is the one I used to login here), so I began the registration process. In this registration process the first thing they have you do is sign an "Agreement". Please read carefully the "Terms of Agreement". Unfortunately it is 30 pages long with 23 components. You basically have few if any rights in this agreement. Again I repeat, please read it. They reserve the right to control everything including your internet content and even email messages. Plus they can change the agreement anytime they want, sell it to someone else and charge you outrageous fees for service. They even require you to pay for the return of their equipment after your 24 months of loyalty. I refused to sign it which meant of course I couldn't move on in their registration process, and of course I therefore can't look at my billing statements. Just another HughesNet ripoff. I'm just hoping the FCC shuts them down, they get run out of town by some legitimate competitor or some class action suit buries them.

I have been logging in through gmail or facebook from the getgo and have never had any problems at all. All I can say is that I hope the FCC will never shut hughenet down it is all the internet I can get where I live. Been with Hughes for over 2 years and never had any such problems you mentioned.

i never any problems  but go to hughes net first and ask them , first to explain  and  but something does not sound right so try to  keep your cool and talk it out with the company , first  and remember sugar draws more  attention and going to the source is better than putting on the network first, then let me know what is going on   . ok .

Thanks for the comment Janice. I truly wish I could say "ditto". Unfortunately I have been with them for only 4 months and find nothing positive that I can say about the experience. I can't stream videos, they have arbitrarily added extra charges to my monthly bill that I never asked for and now I can't even read my monthly bills without first signing over my first born.

Thanks Christopher. I've tried talking to them in the past with very little satisfaction. Thus I feel it is time to share this experience with both other HughesNet customers as well as other authorities.

Daniel - Christopher is right.  This is quite unusual.  In investigating your account we can see that you contacted us earlier in the year in reference to NetFlix and VoIP issues. If the sales rep misled you - that's unfortunate.  We can fix that here.  We're removing the VoIP charges for Jan and ensuring it stays off.  We also want to understand if the HughesNet service is not meeting your expectations, maybe we need to bring in advanced support.  

You'll be contacted later today confirming the Jan credits to your invoice and follow up on any other service performance concern you might have.  Most of all, thank you for posting so we can get to the bottom of the problem.

Thanks for your comment Gerald, but this is not an issue of past problems but rather a simple warning to HughesNet customers to read what they are signing off on, and understanding the "potential" consequences of this. If you don't mind having this anvil over your head feel free to sign on. Just trying to make sure you know it is there.
