Not here. Seeing 156 Mbps this morning.

I just report what I see on the news slow ones and I thought might be of interest to starlink users. And again for the slow ones the article was on yesterday's Bing news page. So save your snarky remarks and get a life out of the slow lane dum

It was disclosed 5 days after the launch (Feb 3rd and Feb 8th), they lightened the next load and now know that if there's a flare they need to drop payload weight a bit. Overall between older test units, failed units, deorbit tests, SpaceX has lost/decommissioned 314 of 3,347 launched. They've lost more satellites in the last few years than the rest of the world combined has launched if you exclude cubesats, and other than the high loss rate from that batch it's mostly according to plan. Heck, they were launching sats knowing they were obsolete before they were built because eventually they need laser links to relay signals from the polar regions and far ocean locations to land based connection points to offer service to the lucrative airline and maritime markets.

Very recent news on Edge Browser Bing news is that in USA and Canada there has been dramatic drop off in Starlink speeds down to 65 Mps for $99.00 a month. In Canada down to 73 Mbs. Reason given is more and more heavy users piling onto the service. The other internet providers that charge this much offer Gigabit speeds. Just saying. Cheers to the truth.

So the truth seems to be the thread was started to gripe about Starlink.

Next post should include the high cost and bad equipment that needs to be purchased.

Folks, I can watch movies on my laptop at 2m/s. 65 or even 25 is more than adequate. Most of what I do requires no more than 0.5 m/s

I wonder how many users there are on starlink.

While costly, it should not be a big deal since they just launched another batch of 50 satellites the other day.
