So where are the reports of Starlink users with no service?

Not here. Seeing 156 Mbps this morning.


Very recent news on Edge Browser Bing news is that in USA and Canada there has been dramatic drop off in Starlink speeds down to 65 Mps for $99.00 a month. In Canada down to 73 Mbs. Reason given is more and more heavy users piling onto the service. The other internet providers that charge this much offer Gigabit speeds. Just saying. Cheers to the truth.


Which of those gigabit providers is offering service in places like the mountains or deserts where there's not a large human presence? Starlink was never intended to compete with cable/fiber providers on their own turf. And do any of them offer service in the jungles and desolate areas on other continents at any price? Starlink is even serving Antarctica now at much higher speeds than their previous radio link that was barely adequate for basic email.

I get up to 76 m/s down and about 7 up on my Sask tel account.

On Bell it seems to depend on time of day. Tonight at 7:30 pm, I'm getting 15 down, and 27 up. Later this evening the down will be faster as folks head for bed.

One of the joys of living in the countryside outside cities.

Earlier this year I upgraded from DSL 5mbps down 600K up for $15 less than I'm paying now.

Much cheaper and faster in cities.

I just report what I see on the news slow ones and I thought might be of interest to starlink users. And again for the slow ones the article was on yesterday's Bing news page. So save your snarky remarks and get a life out of the slow lane dum



Or.......maybe - skip/save posting outdated trivia!

As you can see - it is old news that starlink users are aware of - and has not affected their service....[emoticon]

But - you deserve credit for a dated ..."Gee Whiz"......[emoticon]
