Ever since I have had Hughes Net installed, I have had countless issues with my service. When I first talked to Hughes Net, I was excited because I felt as thought this service option would be better than my former based on all of the nice things the man said on the phone. Yet, nothing that he said has held true since installation. I was told that the internet speeds would be better because Hughes Net was utilizing satellite and the satellite would have a clear opening at my house to have optimized usage. I was also told that Hughes Net would be faster than my former internet provider, which the man discussed with me on the phone, but that has been FAR from the truth. The prior internet service that I had, although it was far from the best, was so much faster than Hughes Net. . . and I am paying more for Hughes Net! Not to mention, the service has been absolutely terrible! I have been in contact with Hughes Net customer service on several occassions, of which there was no resolve. There was one time where the servicemen came to check my equipment. They left a note for me on my TV, that was very sarcastic and rude, saying that I have been connected to the internet. In addition to this, I called Hughes Net the other day because I have not had internet for a week, and was told that I went over my data limit for the month. The representative proceeded to tell me I needed to sign up for the 30 gb plan, of which she did. However, when I expressed how slow the internet has been, no matter what time of the month it has been, the lady told me that I needed to wake up between the hours of 2 AM and 8 AM to download my TV shows and movies if I wanted to be able to watch my television during the day. I am 81 years old! That is absolutely ridiculous. Not to mention, my grandchild helped me log into my online account, which showed that I have NOT in fact exceeded my data limit and have only used 3 gb of data in this billing period! I am beyond frustrated with the rude and cruel nature that they have treated me not only as a person but as an elderly woman. This has been constant since the first day that Hughes Net was installed. I would like to cancel my service and have the ETF waived because of all of the issues and lies that I have encountered with almost every representative of this agency that I have come into contact with.
