Complaint Review: HughesNet Sattellite
HughesNet Sattellite11717 Exploration Lane Germantown, Maryland U.S.A.
Hughes Net Satellite, HughesNet Sattellite Avoid at all cost. The ads on TV are a joke. There are better companies that work. Germantown Maryland
Well, it must have been loaded on the satellite because if you try to surf you always get "waiting", waiting for the site to come up. Sometimes it takes 5 to 10 minutes for a site to come up and that's not a joke unlike this service. Repeated calls to their customer service which is in India, and they only want you to give them a good review, which they repeat more times that they want to help you. I have been told that I have exceeded my down load and I find that hard to believe since I can barely get to a site. I will say that if you get a large down load it will come through fairly fast some times but other times I have been down to .8k and waiting. The highest I have seen is 131k, which is acceptable but not what they advertise.
As far as customer service I just stopped calling because you just get fed up with waiting and then spend 2 hr. with no help, and the language is hard to understand. Almost everytime, they tell you "that is all they can do".
tried their online help with instant messaging and I get a response but I wait for the site to come up to respond and they keep coming back with "are you there? and by the time I get to the site to respond I have 3 are 4 "Are you there?" responses but I have been timed out. Now that's frustrating! When their online help gets timed out. I have tried to get their online to email me but I have never got anyone to email me back. That is poor customer service. If you go to their site, you cannot find an email address to contact them. That should be a sign not to use this company for anything, especially the Internet!!!!
AVOID at ALL COST!!! They are just a rip-off!!
