HughesNet Previously Direcway False advertisment very misleading Extremely slower speeds then promised Plain and simple CRAPPY SERVICE Nationwide

Show customers why they should trust your business over your competitors...

This company is a horrible rip-off!
I pay for speeds of 800/down and 100/up, but what I actually receive is about 250/down and 50/up!

You ought to try testing your own speeds ( test).

I made a call to their customer service about slow speeds I've been experiencing and they tell me that I pay for services UP TO (jkey words here) 800/down and 100/up - which is extremely rare that I actually receive this much - because the network is busy. ALL DAY, EVERY DAY THE NETWORK IS BUSY! ABSURD!!!
Not to mention you can't understand a d**n thing their customer service reps are saying (heavy accent).

I'm finding a new provider TODAY. I think we should organize a class action lawsuit!!!

Also may want to try this number it does work and gets you to corporate direct and fast.................

Call the Corporate Office, press 0 for the Operator and ask for Executive Customer Care.
