New DishNET Service Now Offered by DISH

On October 1st, 2012, DISH began offering their new DishNET high-speed Internet service. The satellite Internet service will offer the same speeds and rates as HughesNet, their current Internet partner, but will combine both statements into one bill.

DishNET Pricing and Installation

Pricing for DishNET depends on service location and speed, but ranges from $49.99 to $79.99 per month. DishNET is available throughout the United States (including Alaska and Hawaii), and speed of service is at least 5 Mbps for every DishNET customer with the additional option of 10 Mbps and higher data caps for those in the most populated areas.

Upon its release, DISH plans to offer DishNET as a part of a bundle package. When customers order both DISH TV service (America’s Top 120 or higher, DishLATINO Clasico or higher, or DISH America or higher) plus DishNET service, they’ll receive $10 off their monthly bill. This bundle offer applies to both new and existing DISH customers.

Activation for DishNET is a one-time fee of $99, but DISH waives this fee if the customer bundles their DishNET Internet service with a qualifying TV package (as listed above).

DishNET Data Plans and Service Agreements

DishNET will offer more data allowance than HughesNet with the introduction of both Anytime data, which is always available, and Bonus data, which applies for downloads between 2 am and 8 am. Customers will also receive emails letting them know how much of their data is left for the month. If more data is needed, the customer can order more in 3 GB increments, called tokens, for $25 each by calling customer service.

DishNET service requires a 24-month agreement for all customers. The cancellation fee for terminating DishNET service early starts at $420 and is prorated at $17.50 per month based on the months remaining in the contract.
