I can relate to this. I moved into a new development underground lines for homes hadn't been trenched yet. I had no choice but to go with Hughes Net and I specifically asked is this like Wild Blue where you get so much data to use a month and then you continually buy more if you run out? No, no, no.. nothing like that. Stupid me. I didn't know a thing about satellite internet to know I was being flat out lied to. I was told I could use my Kindle to watch Netflix, movies, etc. and I'd still have enough to stay on the internet or facebook all day long. Cripes, I log on to read email and scan facebook a couple times a day and I don't even do Netflix or movies anymore and I'm going to need to up to the highest level just to do that. What a ripoff to people who have no choice but to use satellite internet. I will glady pay the 400.00 cancellation fee once another service is in this area because it's going to cost me that much in just a couple of months anyway. Very disappointed in this company and the way service was sold to me.

Are you serious about Direct TV? I didn't know anything about that and I also feel like I fell hook, line, and sinker when purchasing this service. In fact, I was flat out lied to. I had a friend with Wild Blue who was always running out of data and specifically asked the salesperson on the phone if Hughes Net was like that. He said no, not at all. If you're used to leaving email and facebook up all day, you can do that with Hughes net. Bull ! My twenty free days ran out two days ago and I've already used 25% of my month and all I've done is read email, facebook, did some banking, looked around Target.com and that was it. At this rate my plan will last me five more days. What an absolute ripoff. I ordered this svc. because no underground lines had been trenched to a new development yet I purchased a home in. I will gladly eat the 400.00 cancellation fee to switch to Century Link because I'll spend that in two months time just buying tokens from Hughes Net. Disgusting to take advantage like this of people who have no access to regular internet.
