i typed in my address under the recovery act banner and it said i was not eligible.
wildblue and hughesnet were working together to get gov't funding for rural high-speed internet; but my understanding is that it was simply to get more capacity in the sky, not reduce subscriber fees.
my best guess here is that hughesnet has some unused capacity on the satellite serving your area, and they're offering a limited promo to try and fill those slots.
