    doing some research on starlink. it looks to be no better than viasat or huesnet with a latency of 30 ms with 100 mbps down and only 40 mbps up. and it also looks like it's not good for urban areas since the bird won't be able to handle all of the bandwith.. all speculation now still..

    It’s designed for less urban areas in the first place imho.

    Last October Starlink was tested by the US Air Force at 610 Mbps to a flying aircraft.

    I've seen ~20 ms pings mentioned, but I don't know how official it was. I haven't seen an upload figure mentioned from that test. Given the limited number of Starlink sats in orbit and available ground stations at that time, latency may not have been a significant test result.

    i have to say it's gonna be interesting how the providers are gonna play the rate game once things like starlink and amazon's kuiper project and 5G becomes full blown:rolleyes:,, i was told to switch over to 5G because the price and speeds i would get with it would bankrupt spectrum...
