All but dead!

11 posts in this topic

It has been a while since my last visit in this particular forum, as some of you know I got rid of hughenet a long time ago for DSL.  Anyway, I thought I would come back and see the complaints on Hughesnet, but to my shock, no posts since 2012!

 

So, either Hughesnet have got better at what they do (highly unlikely) or they have less users to complain about the service or maybe people have got used to what they have.

 

Either way, just dropping into an old haunt to say hi!  :)

Hey Sparky :)

 

Yea your right, not much new is there. It would be interesting to get some input on what the latest is on some of these satellite networks.

Hello again sparky. Good to see you drop in again. Never left myself .... just replaced Hughes like you except with EVDO.

 

My intake on it was people are both of your assumptions really. Smoother some but when possible still replacing satellite with something more solid and weather proof. <wink>

I was told once that Shugs came back but was scared of me so he came incognito this time .... or is that under an assumed name. :toothy6:  Just a rumor of course.  :angel:

Got rid of Hughes...

 

For years it was the same game: launch a new satellite up, overload it then lie to paying customers about performance issues. Hughes seems to hope that most people wont ever figure out they arent getting what they pay for....not to mention hope they dont understand data caps. Takes quite an effort to even get past the script readers for a key player in getting problems fixed. 

 

What a relief dont have that hassle any longer.

 

Verizon 4G unlimited plan for me.

I'm thinking of buying a place in the country because I don't work anymore and don't need to be in the city. What's holding me back, and I can't believe that this is possible, is that I'm addicted to my Rogers cable connection. I rented from a guy back in 2000 who bought a Hughes sat setup. The guy that hooked it all up wouldn't shut up about how fast it was, and he was right. What he didn't say was that when you hit 300MB you're at dial-up speed for the rest of the day. Then you could download another 300MB. I don't remember the price but I know it was crazy high. I called a number looking for info the other day and the person I talked to was like a used car salesman on speed. I'm wondering if their service, or ant sat service is worth getting involved with. My only alternative is Bell and they can't supply much when you get more than a few miles from one of their exchanges. Any ideas?
