Will you limit heavy bandwidth users?
As is standard with other Internet Service Providers, WildBlue will ensure that its service operates at optimum speeds
for all of its customers. Since WildBlue is a shared network,
we will have a Data
Access Policy to ensure that extraordinary usage by
a few customers doesn't negatively affect the normal usage
of other customers.
For the vast majority of users, the Data
Access Policy will have no effect on their usage. For
a few very heavy bandwidth users, the system may restrict
their bandwidth and therefore their speed. We plan to offer
multiple service levels that should accommodate most users'

Can I suspend my account during the year?
We have many customers who enjoy lengthy vacations or have summer/winter homes in rural locations. We are able to suspend your account up to a maximum of six months and a minimum of 30 days. While your account is in a “seasonal” suspend you are able to access your Got Sky email account as long as you have another source of Internet connectivity. If your account is suspended for any reason, you will be charged $10.00 per month and your Initial Term will be extended by the number of months suspended.
Are there any cancellation fees?
WildBlue customers are required to sign a 24 month contract when they initiate service. If you cancel the Service before completion of the Minimum Service Term or Extension Term, the Termination Fee is equal to the number of months left in your Minimum Service Term multiplied by $15.00.
WildBlue Residential customers who ordered and/or activated as of March 1, 2008 are bound to a 24 month programming agreement. If you disconnect before the 24 month agreement expires there will be a cancellation fee of $30.00 multiplied by the number of months remaining in your contract.
Got SKY Commercial customers are required to sign a customer agreement
when they initiate service. If you disconnect your service
before the customer agreement expires, there will be a cancellation
fee equal to the price of your monthly service multiplied
by the remaining number of months in your contract.
If a customer agrees to the terms of the Got SKY Lease and decides to cancel after the WildBlue system has been shipped, they will be responsible for the cost of shipping the system back to Got SKY and a $25 restocking fee in addition to the $24.95 Shipping & Handling fee. If the customer would like Got SKY to send or email pre-paid UPS shipping labels for the return of the equipment, the cost for that is $35. If the installer arrives and finds that there is not any line-of-sight, the customer will not be charged for the return of the equipment, once we receive the equipment back, the customer’s money will be refunded.. All refunds are posted to the credit card provided at time of sale.
