ED Magedson – Founder
Exede/ Wildblue Lied, Cheated, Stold Internet
Someone came to install my Exede dish on March 17 of this year. The internet worked all right but was not fast ad advertised. I was told my phone hook-up equipment would arrive shortly in the mail. When my phone modem arrived I spent hours on the phone with exede's "tech" trying to install it. Exede kept insisting everything was hooked up and after hours of being on the phone and of crawling around on the floor it has, as of today, April 14 never achieved a dial tone.
A call has never been made or received on it. When I called to complain I was treated curtly and told I had signed up for six months (for the phone) and I would have to pay a termination fee! I am certain when the phone was pitched to me it was never mentioned that the phone was $20 for only 6 months and then jumps to $30. I live on Soc. Sec. and would never have went for that. Plus I am old and disabled and live out in the country. Exede's 911 service will not work if the electricity goes out!
More importantly I did not want to give Exede my bank info or my Soc. Sec. number. They told me I could use my card for a one time payment only and I foolishly agreed. I waited to receive a bill and to this day have not received any kind of bill, either in the mail or online! After a week of service I took it upon myself to send Exede $80. I was told my internet would be $60 and the extra $20 was for the phone. Four days later Exede helped themselves to another $20 out of my account, without permission or notice and caused me an overdraft!!
I called Customer Service to have them take the phone back and was stlll going to try and keep the internet but they refuse to work with me unless I pay the phone termination fee. Now I want neither and they have become threatening and rude. So, they get me for $133 for one month ($100 services, $33 overdraft fee) of service but I am changing my debit card information today. We will see if they can get blood from a turnip!
Shame on Exede/Wildblue for cheating and lying to people the way they do - they won't last long in the business, there is too much competition!
