What is Express Repair?

Protection in the event of a problem is imperative. Find out who to call and what is covered under Express Repair.

Express Repair is a service protection plan designed to ensure that your HughesNet® service will be restored in an expedited manner in the event a problem occurs. Under the plan, you continue to receive Technical Phone Support 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, but if the problem cannot be fixed over the phone, a certified technician will come directly to your location to quickly restore your service. Express Repair customers also pay a reduced service fee for onsite repair visits.

There are two levels of Express Repair service that residential customers can choose:

  • Basic Service
    Our commitment is to have a technician confirm a scheduled ETA and arrive by the second business day.
  • Premium Service
    Our commitment is to have a technician confirm a scheduled ETA and arrive by the next business day.

My HughesNet service is still under warranty – why would I want HughesNet Express Repair?

Under warranty, you have priority access to 24×7 technical phone support, as well as onsite support as needed. While most problems are resolved with a simple phone call, it may take up to 7–10 days for a certified technician to visit your home or business to restore service, under the warranty. With Express Repair, if a visit is deemed necessary to restore your service, then a technician will be onsite by 5:00pm the next business day with Express Repair – Premium; with Express Repair – Basic, you will be contacted by the technician by 12:00pm the next business day to schedule an appointment. Service may be delivered as soon as that day or at the next earliest convenience of the member.

How will Express Repair be billed?

The monthly service fee for Express Repair will be billed to you as your HughesNet service is billed (on credit/debit card or via invoice, whichever method you have selected). The co-pay will be billed by that same means if a service visit is requested.

Where can I find Express Repair Terms and Conditions?
