We just shut off comcast cable, only on Starlink now. Both of us teleworking, zooming, etc. streaming tv, never an issue here. Comcast doubled our monthly rate without any notice, required another 2 year contract, so we’re done with them after 20 years.

Think about what’s going to happen when t-mobile connects their phone to the Starlink constellation - satphone at a greatly reduced cost. Knowing what a satphone costs today - it’s a game-changer.

Is anyone receiving the $30/mo federal internet subsidy with their Starlink subscriptions? My $60/mo Spectrum bill went to $75/mo the day the Fed said they were going to give away the free money. It’s nearly criminal. I only get 150Mbps too. I used to live in the Upper Peninsula and my old neighbors Starlink setups get 250Mbps+ speeds.

Was that the Subsidy request rejected by the FCC?

Jim, are you leaving your starlink antenna permanently mounted on your tv mast? If so, any issues driving? Thanks

I finally got my Starling equipment and set it up at home. Very very happy. Even called the lying AT&T and canceled everything I had with them. Happy Happy

I kept the packaging that the dish came in and throw it in the roof top pod while underway. Also left enough cable on the roof to run dish to rear of bus if the front is in the trees.

No, I climb up there and take it down before I drive off. The mount remains bolted to the old TV antenna mast is all.

Yup - we cancelled Comcast last month - both wife and I work from home, streaming zoom calls all day, teams on constantly, lots of streaming Netflix, prime, etc. Got the email about the 1TB cap and they said we used only 563gb in the past 30 days, so we are OK.

Had heavy rain and wind here Friday, no problems at all while we were working. We think the service is better than our old Comcast cable, business class - which we now believe was marketing BS, we saw lots of buffering using Comcast - zero buffering with starlink home service.

Starlink RV also working just fine, even being "second tier" never an issue for streaming on the bus. All my race buddies can log on to the wifi - plenty of bandwidth. The only issue for the RV is the router is inside the steel Faraday cage we call a Wanderlodge and the router signal decreases pretty rapidly unless I set it next to an un-screened window.

I shut off the RV service, so now it's $110 per month for the home service. I'll turn then RV service back on in the spring.
