Just ordered StarlinkContributors to this thread:
For those of us that do not have cable and not much cell service there is a new game in town for internet. Currently I have Viasat for my service provider. 12 mbps download speed and a data cap of 150 gig. We can burn thru that in a couple of weeks if a new series comes on Netflix. Real game changer for all of us stuck in the middle of the National Forest.
Sorry Terry, you just won't get much sympathy from those of us living in this concrete jungle. I would gladly trade places with you.
Knothead, yes it is nice to live up here, but it also has its downside. Like getting up and getting dressed and breaking ice so the wildlife in the area have a waterhole. Hauling wood pellets up the stairs to the pellet stove. Looking like the Pillsbury Doughboy when you go outside to shovel snow. So it is not all fun and games, but I did hear an elk bugle this evening, so that helps.
Did the starlink work? I've tried Hughesnet, and Dishnet and they both weren't worth the money you could barely get email let alone any good tv or internet.
bohunr, have not gotten starlink as yet, but if you go to utube you can get lots of reviews. All good. For me the speed of Viasat is ok. it is the data caps that kill us. Starlink has announced they are going full commercial August September timeframe. As we put our deposit down in Feb, and they go by first come first served we should be one of the first. Now if we don't have too many trees that block the signal we should be good.
