I finally reached my limit with paying top dollar for dial up speeds, and put in an order for exede satellite Internet. It's a new product, supposed to be more reliable than past satellite Internet services with speeds comparable to cable. Also going to port my home phone number to Verizon's home phone connect service-$20 a month for unlimited local and long distance. Can't wait to kick HTC out of my house!
I'm moving to Oneida and I've checked t internet providers there and read these post and I have Hughes net now way back in the mountains and I like it but they have the Gen4 out now and it's available in Oneida and I think I'll stay with Hughes net there good for what I do on computer I am switching to the new Gen4 when I get moved cause when on youtube it takes a few min to load now but it's not bad the tech said they was coming out with a way faster speed and this Gen4 says speeds up to 15 Mbps and monthly allowance of up to 40 GB. I was worried about the monthly allowance going over as much as we all use internet and I've never went over and I'm sure with the 40 GB I wont even doing more than now. If you get Hughes net will you tell them I refered you that way you get low introductory price and $50.00 credit and me too. My name is Alma Brotherton. Hughes net is good I think and I'm staying with them after reading these post..Good luck on your internet service.

Since when did it take 90 days for HTC to bill for anything as I see it they are using peoples money free of charge. They don't let you wait 90 days to pay them. That is just another sorry excuse for the way they do business.

It isn't their billing. They are at the mercy of AT & T, Bell South, etc. They can't bill for long distance calls until they get them from the other service providers.

I hope all goes good on your internet everyone. I think I'll stay with Hughes net since I've read all the comments..
Hi Alma. I have a few ? for you. What is price hughes net per month? Are you locked in to a contract? Is it knocked out by weather often? Is there a big delay if you use like skype or netconference type services, ie delay in voice? Is up to 15 Mbps both upload and download speed? Thanks

I got the hughesnet gen4 service intsalled a couple of weeks ago, and compared to what I had with highland, it is awesome. The download speeds are advertised at 15Mbps, but I don't always get that high of a speed. Realistically, it is normally 10 to 12 Mbps, which is still excellent compared to what highland offers (with highland I paid for the 1.5 service, but normally got about .5). The service costs around $80 per month, which is expensive, but not much higher than highland, plus the connection is actually usable.

If you have their cable,good luck getting it fixed on a holiday or weekend.cable went out over the 4th of July,called the emergency # and found out that nobody was working over the holiday.Now it is monday and still haven't heard anything.They don't have anybody on standby for emergencies.Every other utility I know has someone on standby. where I used to work they always had someone on standby.took my cable boxes back to them and I'm done.If I find someone who can give me internet here.I'll get rid of it too.

Go to Straight Talk. The home phone works great!!!!! Do Not need that goofy Highland crap!!!! Just plug the box in and get a card from Walmart. Verizon has the best Internet with their WiFi.$50 for 5GB. We barely use 2MB a month! Straight Talk is only $17 a month and you can talk as long as you want and anywhere you want! Better than dealing with Highland!!!!!!!!!! And in most places, FASTER!!!!!!!! You can take your home phone with you in the car.
