    Skyway USA Internet (off the air for how long?)

    Does anyone know exactly what is going on at Skyway USA?
    Almost a week ago, their satellite service went out on 105 West, and all customers are told to change their computer for "dialup only" mode of access. Their website at
    Satellite Internet Service Provider | SkyWay USA | .95/mo.



    claims that their technicians are working on the problem, but nobody has updated the website,
    telephones are not being answered, nor have any Email requests been returned. Helluva way to
    run a business....it's getting awfully close to winter, and I am going to be very upset if I have to change providers on short notice.

    Apparently Skyway - and by association SkyFX - are lying tits up in bankruptcy court. See
    SkyWay USA LLC 3:11-bk-34329 Kentucky Western Bankruptcy Court Docket Case Summary



    and
    Bankruptcy Reorganization Chapter


    . Others are reporting that the SkyWay support number - when they answer - is selling HughesNet

    Hi Philip. I'm also a Skyway USA subscriber. Am incredibly frustrated with Skyway USAs approach to this. They remind me of DiscoverCards "USA Prime Credit" commercials with Peggy but at least there SOMEONE answers the phone. I'm completely at a loss as to what to do. I paid handsomely for this equipment 9 months a go and it looks like I made a bad choice (more like idiotically incompetent choice) but at the time, both Hughes and Blue said they were "full" in my area and this was all I could do. What are my options? Just curious. Thanks

    This provider has been kinda sketchy all along from what I have heard and what I seen in person what a subscriber went through. They tried to get me to install and sell their service but were not that acomodating requiring me to purchase several at once. They just had too many issues then they raised their prices to $39.99 which did not make them that competitive against WildBlue and HughesNet. I figured the end was near when they jacked the prices up. The only good thing I could see with their system is that the customer could install it their self and the hardware was cheaper saving money upfront and a little bit each month.
