Anne D | Brooklyn, Maryland
Anne chose the small town of Brooklyn, Maryland, nestled on the Patapsco River leading into the Chesapeake Bay between Annapolis and Baltimore, to enjoy her retirement.
Brooklyn is a safe, quiet community of homes and parks. It has convenient access to mountains, beaches, and rivers where people ski, sail, golf, raft, and explore nearby caves. Government agencies at nearby Fort Meade, including a branch of the Smithsonian Institution that preserves vintage films, are major employers.
Anne has found Brooklyn an ideal place to mingle with friendly and caring neighbors in her tight-knit community. She also keeps busy with a stable of hobbies such as crafts, sewing, cooking and candle making. Anne uses her Internet service, HughesNet, to pursue those interests while staying connected with friends and family.
“I generally use my Internet service for social media and email, but I occasionally use it to work on private projects.”
"I generally use my Internet service for social media and email, but I occasionally use it to work on private projects. The Internet is invaluable to me for patterns, crafts and recipes," she said. "My latest project is a family cookbook for my children and grandchildren."
Anne was dissatisfied with her previous Internet connection due to outages, hidden costs and rate increases which drove her to look for a new provider two years ago.
"When I decided to switch to satellite TV, they recommended that I try HughesNet. I did, and I have been thoroughly pleased," she said. "I have had no serious problems. Whenever I have had to speak to a service representative, they were very polite and helpful. And most importantly, they were not satisfied until I was satisfied. To me, that's good customer service."
