Let us know more about the system. It’s interesting. Thanks


was easy to setup right now its on a table in the yard i ordered parts to mount up on the edge of the roof but they are ten days out but it is a nice steady signal with great speeds
prior to this since we are in a rural area the best i could get from century link was 15mp this service blows that away

Wher I live I can get up to 100 from my ISP but then I’m paying well over $100 a month. I bet your excited about the speeds. I know there is an initial investment but probably well worth it

That’s higher speeds than I thought you could get from Starlink…excellent! Young lad at my local pet store just got his…I’ll ask him what kind of speeds he’s getting for comparison. :+1:

500 for the kit 99 a month i was paying 45 for 15

in running lots of speed tests during set up 234 was avarage i got as high as 301 but untill i mount higher 220 240 is where i am at

Went to their website and they they say up to 150, so if your getting higer that’s great. Not in my area until late this year…

I just read some people actually use these indoors…so I downloaded the app and was getting about 50% in my office :joy: :+1:

Great post.
A very interesting topic, please keep us informed.
Do they say $99 is the intro price, will it go higher??

What ive read is that is the only price and hardware is $500 but that price should come down in near future as tech evolves…etc
