I just read an article on Starlink today. It sounds like their latency performance will be better than HughesNet, because of the low orbits. No data caps, but starting at $99/month. Tests showed it performing very well, but keep in mind that it is not much loaded yet.Not available down here in the South, yet, but soon? The new SpaceX Starlink setup looks to be the bees knees for rural access.
Just my personal observation and experience with our HughesNet service.I used Wild Blue/ Hughes Net for to remote Navajo & Hopi Reservation projects I had in Arizona 10 plus years ago. 1st time it went smooth and worked well. 2nd time they came to the project, set it up and it worked for 2 days and quit. Called for service. The guy never showed up or would say he did when we knew he did not. I was getting nowhere with them so I had my controller cancel my credit card and get me a new one. Then they started calling me, wanting payment. I told them if they would send someone out to fix it, I would be happy to pay them. Never happened. Finally it escalated to one of the supervisors calling me about payment. I asked him to explain what it was I was to pay for. He said the service I agreed to. I explained to him that he was welcome to litigate it, but I was curious to know how he thought he could prevail for non payment of a service that I never received. I suggested that he keep the funds they had billed me for which equated tot he initial deposit and about 3 months of billing and cancel the account. He finally agreed. They were a joke. I do no know if they have improved since then, but I would guess very little.
That's what we do. No cable or DSL option here. The wireless is faster than the dial up option we have. I get a good AT&T wireless signal but still use the wireless instead of an AT&T hotspot.There’s a new wireless outfit attracting customers in the area, but I live closer to a creek bottom with a tree line on one side and a ridge on the other. I’m fairly pessimistic about the odds of them being able to hit a tower.
See the post directly above yours. I didn’t realize it but it’s actually an update to the one you quoted.That's what we do. No cable or DSL option here. The wireless is faster than the dial up option we have. I get a good AT&T wireless signal but still use the wireless instead of an AT&T hotspot.
We're halfway down in a valley with a couple of ridge between us & the tower. They weren't sure about it but were able to connect from our roof. Not additional pole needed.
We're about 18-20 down. Costs about $150. Unlimited data.
You should have them out & see if it will work.
