Again billy, you didnt read the links and are just spouting from the wrong end of a longneck. The latency #s are in the links. I dont help the lazy so if you want to know them, you are going to have to read the Facts for yourself.
And you apparently missed the part about faster than the broadband you tout and cherish.
And the part about how big the satellite network is going to be lol.

I will help you with some math. At the planned launch rate(which they are currently meeting) with the reusable rocket that has launched more than any other in history, GLOBAL coverage can begin in 2Q 2021. It of course Wont be available for those clinging to their hardwired broadband but i wont name any names.

And yeah duh Starlink does belong in this thread. One reason DirecTV is dying is the coming replacement by Starlink. Might need a new handle to stay current eh.

I would say that you can go ......yourself but I will not. I really don't care that you and I have different opinions (but it appears you do). You read stuff and accept that as fact. I read stuff and question how that's possible (like changing the laws regarding the speed of light).
My Mom called me Billy early on but not later in my life. You are NOT my Mom so chill the ...... out.
I promise not to call you...sorry, I might call you that.


What I post is my 2 cents and nothing more. Please don't read anything into my post that's not there. If you disagree, that's OK.
Can't we all just get along?

Billy is getting very upset that satellite TV might send him a notice soon that they will no longer be in business due to lack of customers..

If you think Elon is spending billions of dollars on this satellite internet that will give poor service you are wrong..

Oh yea and there is 2 other satellite internet companies coming online after Elons is up..

Has AT&T found a sucker yet for DircTV..

Little Timmy Mac has been shouting at the wind for years and no one will fall for it. He has never explained the reason he's so mad at the satellite TV providers but his fear mongering only sucks in a few folks each time he skews this BS. So much of this Country remains under served that it will be years (if ever) before a reasonable internet system truly covers everyone.
In the meantime, I have NO CONCERNS about the future of my satellite TV service.

This thread went from DTV to internet on the first page. Weird.

I'll use my Directv until it goes dark. I have no other choice in the woods.

I agree 100% and apologize for that. For some reason, the site wont let me post hot links. It has been this way since i joined. Perhaps a conflict with my browser settings or something.

LOL, looks like billy is getting a bit sensitive. Sincere Apologies to your mother chief, but billy is just easier to type than your entire non de plume. Maybe i should let you off the fact hook if youre going to appeal to mommy.
