Default It's dead Jim!

Yes, after six years of suffering, I have canceled my Hughes.net subscription! Gone are the days of dead-slow connections, erratic downloads and no connection at all. No more customer support by people who do not speak English and cannot diagnose their own equipment if my system isn't running Windows! Really, they cannot check their own modem to NOC connection if you don't have Windows.

I'll be at the new (to us) house most of the time and we have real broadband, about 120 times the speed for half the money.

In celebration, I have turned 'download images' on for HBT!

Not that I'll have much time with all of the repairs the house needs, but at least I can enjoy the experience now.

Welcome to the 21st century....If you would like all of us regulars can post all the images that we ever posted in all the threads we ever posted pictures in here for you so you don't have to go too far to play catch up....

Here I'll start with the first pic I ever posted on here.



That's me in the sombrero from 2001.

Huh, the people we brought our house from 3 years ago had it but because I was able to get a dirt cheap air card from the company I work for with EVDO I just used that. Now that I am being laid off and will lose that discount and I was thinking of getting Hughes Net. I am glad to hear they are not all that great BEFORE signing up. My only options where I live are that, dial-up and wireless via a cell phone carrier. I wound up getting the cheapest broadband from Cricket. Bad, sometimes I am only downloading around 15kbs and it drops alot.

Yah know, finally being able to see all the images posted on this site is going to give you a TOTALLY different view of this place. Be prepared to have your world rocked!
