Wildblue Satellite Internet / Poor internet service!
I am extremely disappointed with WildBlue satellite Internet service. There are so many things wrong with it but to name just a few: very expensive as compared with cable modem or DSL or dialup; very slow speed even though it is advertised as high-speed; even though you are paying twice as much as other services that offer unlimited bandwidth the WildBlue service limits the bandwidth you can use and if you use more than is allowed they punish you with 30-days of only 10% of their normally abysmal speed making it almost impossible to use the Internet. I am a programmer and a computer professional. I had to download quite a bit of data from Microsoft recently as part of my work. Without warning WildBlue now has put a sever limit on my Internet speed as a form a punishment. I have to say that I hate WildBlue. And I have never said that about another company. But there is something so infuriating about WildBlue’s total lack of customer support and their willingness to punish customers for weeks on end because their completely silly bandwidth limits are violated. I tried to call them several times but am told via a recorded message that the wait will be interminably long before anyone will speak with me or yesterday after a long wait a recorded message came on the line and said that I should call back in a few hours because they were to busy to take my call. Stay far away from WildBlue. Go with Hughes Net or anything else but WildBlue.
