Do not buy./join/get this service trough this lousy company and screw up your life ...unless you have machete wielding men running after you, even then, RECONSIDER !!
The HUGHESNET is after people that do not have choice, they know that If you live on country side, you don't have much choice regarding the internet connection, I mean anything faster that dial-up. In my case the alternative is moving back to area where they have multiple service, DSL, cable, WI-FI and so on.
Back in September, 2007, They advertised:$59.99 a month plus 400.00 for antenna and mode with instant $100.00 rebate. Called to see why they continued to charge me 20.00 extra for the equipment they said, I have to pay $400.00, when I tried to explain what was the deal, they said I have not filled/send request for $100.00 rebate.
Fair Access Policy
Many other internet companies are imposing similar measures but with more fair downloads limits 5GB or so this company set the download limit to 200mb for $59.99 and 450MB or so for $89.99 service. These days auto update for Windows OS takes 4 times more. Their solution is: repeated over and over and over trough the Indian speaking customer service. Go to Google and download "Download manager" where you can set the download time between 2AM and 7 AM EST when they do not have restrictions.
It is insane, these days to deal with such arrogant company management. They are still in business. How? We are stupid customers!
Once more do not GET THIS SERVICE, you'll live happier life, save money and nerves.
