Prices go up June 17th.

Satellite phones are in short supply. I have the Bivy stick.

I have satellite home phone (and it’s one of the circuits on the Gen) through my internet provider. I can connect the IPhone to the satellite internet and do the same and have text
Am I missing something other than portability with a bivy stick?

You have a system that works, there are many different systems.

Did you watch the video? I think you missed a few things. Bivy can be way better for anonymous communications, especially not on a IPhone or Google phone. How reliable is your satellite internet provider? Who controls its satellites?

I admit, I made it 2/3 of the way through.
I couldn’t see any any benefit over the current. I am often impressed where websites think I am. Colorado,Texas, Georgia seem to be the most popular.
It may be beneficial to some who need it for bug out land.
Not criticizing it. Just didn’t see the benefit.
If I think about who controls it, I would probably switch to Elon’s venture.

I have a unique opportunity. My wife’s company pays our business class internet even though they dropped it down to the lowest level after she stopped working from home. Her new contract will be signed in October, so we could lose this benefit paid for.

I get to compare 2 companies at once at the same time. Viasat has very High speed for their Business class, but the throttling issues. If you download a movie and used up your data for you plan, you can get slower download speeds for the rest of the month

Yesterday we received the Starlink package via Fed Ex. Kinda confused by the lack of written documentation in the box. Until you download the app onto your phone, you really don’t have a clue how to install.

I am beating the down load speeds from viasat business class and the upload speeds keep increasing.

My 2 satellite dishes, DTV and ViaSat are fixed in the same direction. The Starlink has moved from SE to NE in the past 8 hours. Everytime I check, the speed upload, download increases. Latency decrease. Weird thing, it points up while the other dishes are at a 45.

Starlink is meant to be transportable. You may have to pay extra for this. For anyone with BOL,this may be important

I would say if you self install this system, give it a couple days to reach its full potential.

The dish learns from your location. Totally unique from previous technologies
