Complaint Review: Hughesnet
Hughesnet is Ripe for a Class-Action Lawsuit Germantown Nationwide
*REBUTTAL Individual responds: Class Action Against HughesNet
*Consumer Comment: The only people who benefit
Hughesnet should be the subject of a class-action lawsuit. Its sales representatives misrepresent facts including, but not limited to, the quality of service and the pricing. I do not know how many people experience what I have been experiencing, insofar as the connection speed and the modem rebooting every 10 minutes, but I can't imagine it not being a nationwide problem. I recently spoke with a Hughesnet representative, who happened to be in the Philippines, about upgrading my service, since I had purportedly went though all of my allowed mb within 6 days from it being refreshed (a lie).
The representative told me I would have access to the additional speed within 15-20 minutes. I later received an email from Hughesnet stating that the upgrade would only be available between the hours of 2-8 a.m. Seriously! I informed Hughesnet that I was canceling my service at which time they told me I would be charged a $250 cancellation fee. Not only is this unconscionable, it's exploitative. Why would I pay $250 for nothing? I believe that Hughesnet should be made a party to a class-action lawsuit, and investigated by the FCC and FBI.
