Review : Starlink Satellite Internet by SpaceX

I have been using Starlink by SpaceX for the past 2 weeks, and I am very happy with the product. I was suffering big time from the internet in Scotland, because I was using 5G internet. Fiber optics is the best solution and I can get 1GB, but I don’t need yearly commitment, so I was stuck with the 4G internet. The speeds I was getting were so bad where I have to wait for everyone to sleep so I can upload some files to my Dropbox and the maximum speed is 20 MB. The usual speed is 1.5 to 7 MB which is still not sufficient for my use. I remembered Starlink and that it could be a solution, because it is flexible and I can pause the plan anytime I want. For the residential plan the price was very attractive and the device cost 450 GBP and the internet service cost 75 GBP per month. When I added everything to cart it said that it will take 2-3 weeks, so I was OK with that. I submitted the order and in 2 days I received it, and that was really impressive. I was surprised that the package was much smaller than what I had in mind, and the setup was so simple. In the package there is a very small satalite and a router, and it took me 30 minutes to setup the entire thing. Now I am enjoying speeds from 18 MB to 235 MB, and most of the time I get about 80 MB. It is much better than the previous average of 4 MB. I am very happy with my experience with Starlink and I see it as the future of internet.
