I signed up for it. I just purchased 7 acres of land in a rural area that does not have any internet options except for Hughes.Net. DSL only available for people who have it today. Planning on building a house and hoping to move out there by end of the year. So, hoping Starlink will be available here by then. May not be perfect, but will be better than 2-3 bars of cell service with a hotspot.

Starlink is intended for rural areas, so you're on the right track.

Currently, Starlink is available between latitudes 36.9 and 54.8. For example, I was able to sign up for Starlink in CA because I'm at 37 degrees latitude.

Click here to find your latitude.

Given the Demographic of the folks on these boards I don't think all night Call of Duty or Fortnight sessions are a concern LOL.

You must be into gaming to know about those games. BTY I see folks of all ages playing games and I don't think it is base on demographics.

Im 61 and I do play some video games. Can't keep up with my grandson on Call of Duty or Fortnight though.

While the Federal incentives are to gain access to remote or underserved areas... the real motivation IMO is to connect all Tesla vehicles to the internet as part of the AI in self driving. Currently vehicles mostly just learn from their own travels... Starlink will allow all vehicles to be learning from each other. This would imply the mobile application will be available sooner than later.

judging from the stepped-up advertising for Hughes Net and cellular services, they are worried about Star Link as worthy competition. It promises to be a real game-changer unless the Government screws it up. The special interest groups are active.
