For what it's worth, we've found (based on a PM friends advice) - If you're hiring a cleaner, ask the PM who they recommend / work with -...

Skymuster has much lower speed, and 10x the latency fwiw Even worse for people in the US, where a lot of the sat providers (Viasat /...

I'm about an hour and a half from Melbourne CBD - hardly "middle of the desert", but our town is on fixed wireless, with no fibre (as far...

Setup is easy (plug and play, pretty much - assuming you have field of view - you can test with the app, and the app is pessimistic)....

This changed in August. https://www.reviews.org/au/internet/starlink-satellite-internet-australia-wide/

No - they're low earth orbit, and you're basically jumping between satellites. they currently have over 1600 satellites live, more in orbit...

It's also not a typical parabolic satellite dish, it's a phased array setup
27/11/2021 - 22:42
The satellites are ~550km up, so up and back, and then ground stations are located around AU. E.g. One in Koonwarra, VIC

Can install yourself, and lots do. Can buy a pole mount and install on most common antenna mounts - or if you have a tin roof, lots of...

Totally went over my head 😂
27/11/2021 - 22:19
We've had a heap of rain, heaps of wind and hail. Of the three, only Hail has caused issues - and the dish was in an unstable area. few...

One big difference is latency - 50ms vs 500-600ms on Skymuster. It may not be a better / cheaper deal, but it's a more accessible...

WA has only come online in the last few weeks - it's possible they've already filled the cells in those areas (there is limited capacity...

You still need to route around the country first, and potentially through other countries. Place a starlink pop in a country, and you have...

As I've commented in sub-comments, I've been using it for months. Generally, pretty solid - once you have a clear field of view of the sky...

Unlimited at the moment, but we're in Beta still AFAIK (at least in Aus), so may change.

Regular runs using https://github.com/geerlingguy/internet-pi (which uses speedtest-cli), on a linux box on gigabit lan to our router.

Hard wired 30m (IIRC) cable with the dishes we get in AU, and pretty serious PoE injector. Also get a basic router, but many people switch...

Super variable - even with super low obstructions. We still occasionally see "network issues" (when the satellite / internet link has...

Aus is still the old round dishes. Ping in AUS isn't typically 20, it depends on location - I average 36.74ms, which is still very...

Not yet, really - we still go via a POP in Sydney. But once v2 satellites (and possibly v1.5, iirc) which have laser links between...

Been on it for a few months here, and have it mounted on the roof - works wonderfully. Much better than the NBN fixed wireless we had...

Yehp, you just need to do it via the NVR interface (not sure if doable via the web) - but it's all quite easy.

We recently purchased this (from amazon, for a bit more) - and have had a great experience for the price. We had an electricial run cabling...

Any chance of more stock @lele? Been hanging out to order one, and just missed this!
