Www.SatelliteInternetSettlement.com – HughesNet Satellite Internet Class Action Lawsuit Settlement
You can find out more about the HughesNet Satellite Internet Class Action Lawsuit Settlement at www.SatelliteInternetSettlement.com. Basically you can take part in the settlement if you subscribed to the Hughes Consumer Service Plans from May 15, 2005 to March 2, 2012. The service plans included are teh Hughes Home, Pro, Pro Plus and Small Office. Other plans that are included are Business Internet, Elite, ElitePlus and ElitePremium. The Basic, Power 150 and Power 200 are also included. The company apparently misled the customers by charging them fees when they cancelled their service before the actual termination of the contract. These fees are also known as the early termination fees. In addition the download, upload and other internet speeds were not provided correctly.
If you are still a Hughes subscriber right now, you will get non-cash benefits. If you want a cash payment, you will have to submit a claim form. You will be able to submit an online claim form at the HughesNet Satellite Internet Class Action Lawsuit Settlement website at www.SatelliteInternetSettlement.com. You can also print a blank claim form if you would rather do that. Once you have filled out the claim form that you have printed, you will be able to mail it. You must submit your claim form by September 28, 2012.
You also have other legal rights in this case. This includes objecting to the settlement. If you wish to do this, you must submit your objection in writing by July 16, 2012. If you submit your request late, you will not be able to object. You can also exclude yourself if you wish to do that. You will have to submit it by September 28, 2012. You have to remember that if you exclude yourself, you will not get any kind of payment – cash or non-cash. However, if you exclude yourself, you will be able to sue the company on your own. So the choice is yours. You will have to figure out what is best for you. Would you rather get some money now or would you rather sue them later? For a lot of people, it is easier to just to submit the claim form and get the money. For others, the idea that they can get more money is more tempting. So weigh your options carefully as you will not be able to change your decision after you have made it and missed the deadlines.
There is an FAQ at the website if you have any kinds of questions that you want answers to. The FAQ is rather comprehensive and you should be able to find the answer you are seeking here. If you get a letter or a postcard in the mail, then you know for sure that you are a class member and can submit the claim form to get money. There is also a phone number that is provided at the website that you can call if you are still not sure.
Now some of you may be wondering how much money you can get. Actually the amount is not too bad. For the early termination fee you will get $40. This is if you paid the fee before December 6, 2010. If you did not pay the early termination fee before December 6, 2010, you can only get $5. If you are only eligible for the non-cash benefits, you do not have to submit a claim form. You are only eligible for the non-cash benefit if you are still a current Hughes subscriber.
The Fairness Hearing will be on November 16, 2012. You do not have to attend this to get payment. However if you wish to do so, you can. It is during this time that the court will decide whether to approve the settlement. In most cases the settlement is approved. There are those rare occasions when it is not approved. So if it is not approved, you cannot make a claim and hence you will not get any payments. So make sure that you keep an eye out and find out what is going on. However, if you wish to submit your claim form early, you can definitely do that. After all there is no harm in submitting a claim early. The worst that can happen is that you do not get anything. At least if you submit early, you know that you will not miss the deadline
