Obtained Hughes Net Gen 4 Internet services over a year ago.  Internet quality has been up and down.  Light internet surfing and email are OK, but if you want to use streaming media, forget it.  I do not really watch TV so I stream 99% of my video content.  I have called technical support multiple times.  I was hung up on twice!  First, they blamed it on the weather, so then I called them on a clear day and then blamed misalignment of my dish (I live in the middle of an empty field).  For a mere $125 I can have a technician come out for 10 minutes and realign my dish.  Wait...what?

I told the technician that I just had it aligned two months ago, she replied "they did not install the dish correctly".  Exactly, so why are you charging me for it?  What a headache...

I pay $88 a month for Hughes Net Ultra Service and I cannot even stream a standard definition movie.

The only way out of the contract is a $325 early termination fee.  Like most users, I set my plan to the lowest possible and disconnected my dish.  Now I am paying for internet service that I do not use.  Buyer beware, avoid this Internet Service Provider and do not get hung up in the contract mess.
