I have been an UNHAPPY customer of HughesNet since August of 2018 and today is May 14th as I write this. It is so hard to get in touch with coroarate to discuss issues I have been having. I have not had working service with HughesNet more often then I had working service with hughesnet. The customer service reps told me everything from you have patchy couds in your area to, there is a slight chance of rain as to why I was unable to receive internet, at times this went on for days. The customer service resresentitives were in the Philipines telling me about my weather as I looked and told them it was incorrect,they insisted. There was no credit offered off my bill for the days I went without service. I would call and the customer service representitive I was talking to would be disconnected and I would rarely receive a call back or even worse have to recount a two hour conversation I previously had to a new resresentitive. Allot of the information I requested was undocumented. I dont know how this is a legal way to do business. I have had to call in about four times a month because my internet was so slow or off. I called to have my payment information removed from my account and requested a paper bill before canceling my service with HughesNet. I entered in to a contract buyout program and planned to go forward with that. The customer service associate I spoke with did not take my payment method off and I was charged $310 on my debit card as a early cancelation fee. I feel fees like this sould be criminal with a company like this because they have extensive documentation of how unsatified I was as a customer. When I called to get information on this and try to have the bill correted I was simlpy told there was nothing they could do. This company is terrible when it comes to the customers treatment. I WOULD NOT reccomend this company to anyone but an enemy. I have multiple incedent numbers of times I have been hung up on and spoke with customer service for hours with no avail. IE: 120038243, 120038369, 126618591 and 120582523. I was told that I would receive a paper bill for my early termination fee and I was charges $310 unannounced and now my child will not have a prom dress thanks to this detestable service provider- HughesNet. There should be a credit given to customers who have had problems like this and haven not been helped. I have tried everything to improve my quality of service( naking the nessasary changes, running tests on my system, ect) and was told "There is nothing else we can do, is there anything else I can assist you with?" I was nevr able to speak with a supervisor onany occasion. I would like to be refunded my early termination fee as HughesNet did not live up to their part of the agreement. This company puts people in contracts for flawed service then turns around and charges you to get out of a reaccouring problem, to make money because HughesNet knows their services leave allot to be desired. The customers should not be penalized because HughesNet was unable to provide adiquate internet service. I will have my service deactivated soon so if corperate would like to contact me please do! I makes me furious that with the terrible reviews this compay has againt my better judgement I took a chance on HughesNet to be yet another dissatisfied customer.
