starlink high speed broadband internet

You can sign up with your zip, they'll let you know when it will be available in your neighborhood (sometime this year)

https://www.starlink.com/

Starlink is designed to deliver high speed broadband internet to locations where access has been unreliable, expensive, or completely unavailable. Private beta testing is expected to begin later this summer, followed by public beta testing, starting with higher latitudes.

If you provided us with your zip code, you will be notified via email if beta testing opportunities become available in your area. In the meantime, we will continue to share with you updates about general service availability and upcoming Starlink launches.

They're not spammers, they don't yet offer service in our neighborhood, they will follow up by email, they need your address to know if you're in the coverage area, and email address to notify you, no one forced you into this, I'm not sure what you're kvetching about

$499 upfront, $99/month.
I wonder what people who type "u" instead of "you" do with all their free time.

Pricy. Only worth it where there’s no other option (which is a lot of places, but not your typical DDFer home address).

I assume the price will come down as availability increases.

Do they have any plans/capabilities for a portable unit? $99/month for use in remote places (seamen, adventurers, etc.) would be amazing. Granted you’d have to be a low-power device/transceiver and there would have to be sufficient coverage for it to be viable.

It's all in the works.
