So, away idle speculations and assumptions. And you don’t even need to look at the official press releases that say the phrases «will», «should be.» There is information about what the equipment for receiving and transmitting a StarLink «constellation» signal is, and its real performance for an ordinary user.
The first owners and users of StarLink equipment have already begun to talk about their experience of connecting and testing the capabilities of the satellite Internet system from Elon Musk. The unpacking and beta testing results of satellite Internet were shown in great detail by a resident of the city of Bellevue (northern Washington state, near the border with Canada). By the way, take a close look at the video of the stop at the user’s home from Bellevue. This is a simple American living in the provinces, not a millionaire at all. This means that you don’t have to say that StarLink is only for the rich. As the network grows and competition increases,
What immediately catches your eye is that everything is made for a person — packaging, installation kit, ease of connection, and even a bag for carrying the kit during installation, or somewhere in the future. Sufficient cable length, their ends are already in the terminals. Simple and convenient. The #tesla cybertruck style router looks especially cool

The mounting kit, in addition to a convenient carrying bag during installation, what is most important, has a very clear instructions and a set of necessary screws, bolts, mounting brackets made of anodized aluminum and an excellent sealant for waterproofing. Everything is thought out to the smallest detail, and the user does not have to run to the nearest household goods store to buy something in addition. All details instill confidence in their reliability and durability. By the way, there are two installation options. You can fix the satellite dish on the roof, or you can even in the room, on the porch, on the balcony, or even on the ground, in case you take the set with you anywhere on a trip or on vacation, on a three-beam stand. Everything is elementary, simple and reliable.

And of course, the most important thing for which all this is being done is the connection itself, its indicators. Real connection results and a speed test show that you can easily not only surf on the Internet, but watch # streaming video in 1440p and 4K format without buffering, and who is interested, then play online games (for me personally, this is just a loss time). In any case, for work, communication, and play, even at this initial stage of the #starlink network rollout, the performance is very good. And they are even very good, especially for rural areas, where the quality of the Internet is often poor. And this is not even taking into account that, for example, often during thunderstorms there is a power outage, and this can also affect the towers of cellular stations. So your home satellite Internet is also an element of information independence, just like your own

Some other users may have slightly different ping and download figures. This, of course, is due to the presence on the horizon of one or another number of active satellites. At the same time, Elon Musk wrote on Twitter that the latency will soon decrease significantly, and the bandwidth will increase.
