Mom bought me my HughesNet dish in 2007.I was locked into a 15 month contract.
I tried to get the protection plan for my dish, but HughesNet told me there wasn't one.
I lost my dish on April 16th when the tornado hit.
It would cost $129.00 to relace the dish. It would cost $79.99 a month for service.
I opted to buy a Verizon Hotbox for around $50.00. It will support up to 5 computers ! I opted to buy the insurance on the device. I pay around $60.00 a month for service not counting the insurance.
I am saving money by switching to the Verizon Hotbox. I'm also helping my finances at the same time because I own shares of Verizon stock. I have had my stock for years and it pays $1.95 a share dividends annually. I own a nice amount of this stock and I just let it do its thing of splitting, etc., and as a result, I own more than the 125 shares I started out with when it was given to me. My dividend check is my mad money.
Anyway, by switching to a Hotbox I save over $200.00 annually on my ISP plus there was a big savings on the difference between the cost of the HughesNet dish and the Verizon Hotbox.
I do love to save $$$ !!!
