    What you have presented here is just somewhat of an extension of StarLink marketing rhetoric. You would need a very agile specialized antenna pedestal to use this on a mobile platform because you introduce pitch, roll and yaw to the tracking algorithm. While a phased array can accomplish beam steering, in and of itself, it's not agile or fast enough to maintain acceptable eb/no for data lock while pitching, rolling and yawing. It is also important to note that you don't just lock on to one satellite, I mean initially you do, but the satellite footprint is moving very quickly and the footprints overlap, when the near the edges of the footprint there is a handoff and this is also where the crosslinks come into play ... satellite 1 will release your terminal base address and hand it over to satellite 2. One other bit of information that leads to the low latency is that the low earth obit satellites are much closer than the typical geostationary satellites we use today and this nearness means that it takes less time from the signal to travel. My one big concern with StarLink is that nowhere have I seen anything with regard to end-to-end encryption, which means it could be highly susceptible to spoofing or hijacking.

    I have adsl in Montana and get near 100 milliseconds of latency from my local isp to my house. Only 2.5 mbps/ 500kbps on a good day for over $100 usd per month. So this is life changing for us. My daughter cannot even do online schooling due to the quality of our internet. When I asked about the time frame for upgrades to our internet with our local phone cooperative via twitter they blocked me. So this would be amazing. We do not even have cellphone coverage here.

Has anyone tried to power the 90 watt power supply with an inverter connected to a solar charged 12 volt battery? We have a different location in the summer than in the winter. Is it hard to move the location of the Starlink assuming there is coverage at both locations? Thanks.

    I'm in the beta but waiting for my dish now. Where I live, I can only get one megabit. Not Byte, bit. I use my phones unlimited internet with a rooted hotspot because it's five times faster. My Ping tends to be in the 200s during the day though. After midnight it goes down to 70ish. Can't wait for my Starlink. Fourteen years of shit internet and the providers have zero plans to ever upgrade the cables in my area. There are a few dozen other houses in my semi-rural neighborhood and the high-speed fiber runs down the length of the highway less than 200feet from my house and they will not run lines to any of us.

    2:11 FaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH! This was me in 2015 and here's the thing about that! In Atlanta, about 6 years ago, Google was trying to rollout their internet service with a much higher speed with their Gigabit internet. It was one of many cities chosen in an effort to compete with the likes of Comcast and ATT. However, things didn't pan out as well as they have planned. Limited in coverage based on the fact that they can't use existing utility poles because it was owned by the competitor and it was one huge mess. I am 3.7 miles from the nearest neighborhood that services the area and I internally weep every time I realize that. 3:31 500 dollar starter kit! WOW! 13:12 In other words, spacial billiards.
