Roxann Nashport, OH

We got the 10GB plan for $49.99 ends up being $70.50! It sits and spins constantly even with plenty of data left. If it snows, gets dark, rains, everything effects it. I'm tied in to a years contract which isn't going to stop me from cancelling. They suck!

Fine if there is no alternative. Data is expensive If you want to cut the cord, streaming will kill you with data overage. Owned by Dish. They want your monthly subscription. Big penalty if you want to cancel service before your term.(You will want out!)

Worst service EVER! Customer Service is a joke. The service is not reliable and the cost is ridiculous. The record keeping is even worse. I returned my equipment with tracking numbers and yet they can't track. Result, being charged for equipment I don't have or want. STAY AWAY.

This is the absolute worse internet I have ever had. I run out of data withing the first week. I cannot run my TV or any of my wireless products more than 1 week. If you like to watch Netflix or have direct TV DO NOT go with this carrier!! You have to sign a 2 year contract and to get out of it you are charged a fee.

Service provided as advertised. Very few negatives, and nothing to complain about. However, after reviewing ratings and reviews not all customer have the same opinion as I do

The worst. It took me an hour and a half to watch a five minute YouTube video. Buffer. Buffer. Oops, your connection is lost. You people should be ashamed of yourselves for calling this an internet service. My only other comments contain lots of curse words. ??

I don't have many choices when it comes to internet providers so I have had to accept what is available. No dsl in my area. Would like a better deal on streaming ...Just too costly.

Outrageous prices. When competitive companies offer 35$ unlimited. Better do your research before sighing up with Hughes Net or you'll be paying the price for the next year without internet.

terrible. no guarantee of any service. no concerns for satisfaction of customer. they just want to lock you into a contract and make you pay a huge fee when you cancel, which you will.

Worst internet provider. Slowest internet I've ever had and the customer support never helps and only makes excuses. They won't pay the early termination fee and just make excuses. WOULD NOT RECOMMEND!!!!

The company told us that the 20 Was the right plan for us even after telling the we stream all are shows. Long story short this company lies to tie you in a contract that cost a arm and leg to get out of.

I would give zero stars if I could. Huges net for 2 days and unable to stream anything due to it constantly trying to load. If you're considering this company, take my advice and just don't!

Most of the time it is pretty fast but being a satellite dish it does have its drawbacks. It's not cheap either.

If you like dial up speed and 1G prices, then you might like HughesNet. The say it's high speed, but it's not even close. Hands down the worst provider I have had the displeasure of being contracted with. Do yourself a favor and stay away...

I'm not super impressed by the quality of HughesNet internet. They forced us to sign a 2 year contract before we could see the quality. It's definitely not the worst, but I wouldn't recommend.
