Are any of you using Starlink for video chat (Zoom, for example)? I'm curious to know how the occasional few-seconds drop affects that. I'm on fiber and even with that I get frozen screens and lags occasionally.

A quick update after a couple weeks of real world experience with StarLink. First, the overall performance is as advertised and has not disappointed. I continue to see download speeds ranging between 100 - 200mbps, and uploads around 10 - 15mbps, and latency at around 30ms on average. Very few outages (mostly seen on the StarLink app's statistics pag ... Read All

My speeds vary but all between 90 to 160. Very happy to be on the path of getting rid of ctel
(16 meg) and knowing that Ooma is going to take over th ... Read All

We put a down payment on STARLINK February 2021 and are on the list. We’ve yet to receive any equipment but the website says maybe this summer. I have an account setup and hope we’re included in this next round because our Rockisland speeds are below 5mbps, dismal.

I will have the proprietary ends on it. that will get me further out from my close trees. I have tall trees in my neighbors field about 500 ft aw ... Read All

I received my Starlink last week and the Starlink app has a speed test that's currently showing 125 Mbps download but only 10 Mbps upload.I'm still figuring out the best location and way to mount it to get the best Northern view with some trees.

I'm very curious to learn more about Starlink's strengths & weaknesses for Lopez, so I appreciate hearing from folks who are actually using it. Alex, you mentioned an unobstructed view of the north sky - does that view need to be from the horizon to work well?

I hope folks will check in with updates. Personally, I have fiber and am very happy, but I know that internet access is a pretty big issue for the island (including some who would be happy if there wasn't any).
