Thanks for posting this. Please feel free to let us know what you think after it's installed. I have a shipmate in rural Maine who hasn't been on the Internet for 15 years, it would be nice to connect with him again.

There's some very funny videos on YouTube of farmers in very remote parts of America zooming around on their tractors with their phones in hand comparing dl speeds on various parts on their land with big smiles....well done Elon I say....Elon continues to shake up the world..Jeff Bezos probably getting a little worried I'd say lol....

So far, so good Adelade. I have a perfect unobstructed view of the sky from the top of my house, and have not experienced any interruptions in service. It took a while to get it installed because, due to my health, I can't do any of the work and had to rely on my brother to come over when he had time. But it's set up now and has been working great for the past 3 weeks. My speeds are nothing at all like I've seen on YouTube. They range from around 30Mbps to 100Mbps down, and 6 to 20 Mbps up. I have only been using the WiFi router that came with it so far, but will soon be switching over to an Ethernet adapter so I can use my existing router and network, which should give me some better speeds. For now I have been testing it for stability, and have no problems or complaints. If it continues to run smoothly, In a couple of weeks I'll be cancelling my current Internet provider and using Starlink full time.

Best wishes,

Dan
