    I was hopping we'd see better upload speeds but I think that functionality will really increase with the 2.0 sats.

    Alright - first not so great feedback from me. Got to our rented cabin on the river in CO and get the Starlink rolling. Starts slow - 14MB/s. Then - worse - it says the satellite receiver is disconnected from the router. This goes on for a an hour of me resetting, unplugging, checking plugs etc. finally reconnects but still not so great speeds.

    My theory is being so far from a metro area kills the transmission quality.

    these speeds are still wayyyy better than cell phone coverage or what you can get locally so beggars can’t be choosers I guess.

    This is with weak coverage, got a tower less than a quarter mile away that's going to be converted from LTE to 5G then we should be smokin'.
