Express Repair Terms and Conditions

1. The Plan

The HughesNet® Express Repair Plan (the “Plan”) is offered pursuant to the terms and conditions set forth herein. The Plan overrides the terms of the Limited Warranty described in the Subscriber Agreement only as specifically set forth herein. Please consult your Subscriber Agreement for the terms and conditions of the Limited Warranty. Except as otherwise stated herein, Hughes Network Systems, LLC ("HUGHES"), is the obligor of the Plan. Any person who enrolls in this Plan shall be referred to herein as “You.” The Plan includes coverage for a single subscription. The Plan is extended only to the original customer who enrolled in the Plan and is nontransferable.

2. Plan Details – New HughesNet Subscribers

Express Repair is a protection plan option designed to assure you that your HughesNet service will be restored in a quick and efficient manner in the event a problem occurs. Under the Plan, you will receive 24-hour-a-day, 7-day-a-week technical support from Hughes, and if the problem is determined to be caused by the indoor unit (the satellite modem) or the outdoor unit (the satellite antenna/radio) and cannot be fixed over the phone, Hughes will send a qualified technician directly to your location on a priority status, as described below.

Your coverage begins on the date of activation and is renewed automatically on a month-to-month basis until canceled by you or terminated by Hughes.

You will be billed the Plan’s monthly fee at the beginning of each billing cycle for the next month via the same method as your monthly HughesNet subscription payments. The monthly Plan fee will appear on your billing statement as a separate charge from your regular monthly HughesNet subscription payments.

While enrolled in this Plan, in the event that an onsite service visit is required, you will be billed a co-pay. The onsite service visit co-pay will be billed via the same method as your monthly HughesNet subscription payments. For example, if you had elected to pay your monthly HughesNet subscription fee with a credit or debit card, Hughes will use that same card number to charge you for the co-pay. The co-pay will appear on your billing statement as a separate charge from your monthly HughesNet payments.

The monthly fees and onsite co-pay are as follows:

 

Express Repair –
Basic
Express Repair –
Premium
 Onsite Response Time As Soon as Second Business Day Next Business Day
