    Where I live you don't get fibre, LTE/ 4G/5G nor ADSL. There are a couple of companies that offer a form of wireless internet puts an antenna dish up that points to one of their towers which has to be in line of sight. When tested they managed to get 50mb upload and download with 18ms latency

    I get 1mbs up and down. My ping is unstable with lows of 60ms (although it never stays there) and spikes up to 1100ms+ that lasts for minutes on end. Anyone who has experienced bad internet knows that a small spike in ping (such as 60 to 100) for even a few seconds can be devastating. It can lose you games, tilt you, ruin a play or prevent you from making one etc. Nobody likes HSing someone in R6 only to have it not register, or miss a cannon minion in LoL. I have allways wanted to do youtube and stream, but it is impossible to do on my current internet. Toxic teammate Tommy's online (and anyone who is remotely in my boat will understand this) will taunt you saying things like "just play for better internet what are you poor?" It's not that simple. I can't simply pay for better internet, I pay 90 bucks a month for this garbage but it's all I can get. I am moving for collage soon so it dose not matter anymore as much anymore. My childhood dreams or ISpulse and Streaming will have to wait untell I finish school (but I dont think it will ever happen l, as I no longer have the time nor the motivation I once had when I was younger) this would have changed my life dramatically, and would greatly improve it now as it takes me for ever to access google docs/sheets to get my school done. Good to see papa Elon making one of the most necessary resources, in today's society, affordable and accessible to future generations. This would have altered the course of my life for sure.

    Surprised to see it has over 100Mbps download speed which is more than usable (though I preferred 200Mbps+). However, there is not much users right now and I doubt the performances are going to degrade when more people join this network. Also, I am not sure but I guess the average density of satellites is not uniform across the planet and the internet providers on the ground aren't uniformly located either, so actually using this in a remote area can be very different.

    We can get competition only if the "last mile" (the connection between nearest POP and your house) will be handled by a different company than the ISP. This can be started by passing a law that mandates current ISPs (primarily cable companies) to lease their infrastructure to competitors at reasonable cost. That's what Title II normally mandates, but at the time FCC Chairman, Tom Wheeler (who was previously lobbying for cable companies) put an exclusion to it when he reclassified Internet to Title II. Most people might not remember it, but two decades ago, when DSL was the king of broadband, we had huge number of ISPs to chose from (sites like were useful to rate and chose the best ISPs in your area) this was all thanks to that telco companies were under Title II without such exclusion and other ISPs could use phone lines to provide their service. Starlink adds competition to the area, but it's still only a single company, it's unlikely others could deploy their satellites as well. So that's hardly a true competition. Separating ISPs from the last mile is the real way to solve this. Please contact your representatives.

    Linus, any chance you could put the starlink dish up on a kill-o-watt meter to see how much amps/watts it uses in general use. I'm guessing it uses substantially more when moving the dish and 'heating it' to remove snow than it does during general sit and send/receive... or I'm hoping it does. Off grid solar here and 90w continuous would be 2kw a day just to run the internet.

    Hello Linus, starlink just because available in my area but the cost is 129$ per month along with a 650$ hardware fee. I live in Alberta and my best speed here is 10mbps down.

    Here in the States the corruption has completely eliminated any sort of freemarket. Because of massive deregulation Corporations are allowed to essentially bribe local governments to being the only available provider in a given area. Elon musk does not do marketing. So your criticism of hyperbolic marketing falls flat. He makes no promises but lets the public know what his goals are and tries his damnedest to achieve those goals.If you think that’s hyperbolic marketing that I think you have a very nihilistic view of the world.
