HughesNet This company advertises high-speed internet service and the service is DEFINITELY not high speed. Their service is comparable to dial-up internet service. I upgraded my service with them to the fastest service available from them and found there was no difference between the two services and disconnected my service. They charged me almost $400 for early disconnection which is a ripoff because they didn't deliver the high-speed service they promised. Don't EVER deal with this company and simply get dial-up service. Nationwide

HughesNet advertises high-speed satellite internet service so I ordered my service from them after my old service kept having problems where it would constantly go down and I was unable to access the internet when I wanted to on many occasions. They were completely unable to explain to me why it kept gong down so I switched to HughesNet which was only one of a very few that serviced my area.  My contract with them was for two years.  

When I first got the service I found that the speeds of uploads and downloads was comparable to dial-up intrnet service which, as everybody knows, is definitely not high speed.  When I noted this I upgraded my service with them to the fastest they had available and found that there was no difference between the two advertised speeds.  Since this was completely unsatisfactory to me, I cancelled their service and they charged my credit card almost $400 for early disconnection which was completely unfair because they didn't deliver high-speed service as advertised and promised verbally.  I came to find out later that they don't guarantee their advertised speeds.  

Whatever you do, don't do business with HughesNet because their service is a rip-off.  Simply get dial-up service at a much lower rate with no contract and you will get the same service quality as they deliver.  HughesNet internet service is definitely a major rip-off.
