Sat night we had a bonfire, and counted well over a hundred of the satellites coming over in about a 6 hr period, as well as an appearance from the space station.
How long after they get all the satellites up before it goes live and readily available?

No clue.
Still waiting on a demo unit.
It's live now, but in beta.
Just some FYI, you can also see these things in the daytime.

What altitude are these satellites at yall are seeing. I've obviously never looked but just curious how bad it will really be for stargazers. I wish I had looked while at the ranch last weekend as it is one of the best star gazing spots I've been to.

Anyone got this service up and running yet? Looking for options out in the woods where people are still excited about 56k dialup (on a hand crank phone)

Sorry to hear that. Almost 10 months and no word. Not very encouraging.

I'm looking again for HS internet and was curious how many TBHers have StarLink now? I looked at the page they are saying mid 2022 for my area but I suspect that due to the no number of people in my area it will be later than that. Does anyone in a rural area have it?

I signed up early last year and still don't have it. i found a way to get unlimited att hotspot though for $20/m so I'm not even sure I'm gonna switch over now when it comes.

I bet a lot of starlink got pushed back. Tesla has a lot going on between vehicles/solar/internet and all is very tech heavy. With the chip shortages and general supply chain issues I would bet the slowed down starlink considering it was in very early stages and committed more to things that are already in full swing.

I just saw that on the other thread. I should have bumped it. I'm going to have to do that. $100 for the tablet and $20 for the card... sign me up! You need the tablet, right?

that is not a mofi but it still has open wrt which is what you need to be able to tweak settings and mask the traffic. any open wrt cellular router will work.
