Starlink - Is anyone using it yet?

#1

Post by Reality Check »

I am hoping we can get Starlink soon at our summer place in rural Colorado. Has anyone been able to sign up yet?

So far our place is not in a cell where it shows coverage is available so that means going on a wait list that could take a year. I had Hughesnet for 2 years and to say it sucks is an insult to sucking. I have read on some forums that you can jump the line by picking a service address where Starlink shows coverage and then getting the kit shipped to your real address. I would hate to do that and chance having a $600 kit that will not work.

Yes, I hate Elon Musk and his customer service stinks but it would be a game changer if we can get it.

I think Listeme & Verbie got it so you might give them a shout.

Sadly, I was inattentive to my email (35K unread and counting...) and MISSED the notice that I could now have Starlink - I only noticed it when my deposit was refunded - alas - perhaps NEXT year when my place in line comes up again, I will have it - for my RV.

35K emails?!!

I think I'd just get a new address and start over. ;)

use a mail client that supports filters (like Mozilla Thunderbird) and separate known senders into separate subfolders. The Thunderbird one allows rules to be applied against the inbox, not only on freshly arriving mail, and can sort out valuable mail. Then the rest can be put into the round folder.
