Beta Testing

After months of asking Starlink to "Shut up and take my money!" they finally obliged! 

Oh. That was a lot of monies. 

In any event, a few days or weeks from now, I'll have my Starlink kit and I will be able to report to you, gentle reader, on whether it lives up to its promise.

1 Maybe I can get one for the backup server.  Gotta be faster than the Cogent link it's using now.

2 I'm just curious if the TOU bans torrents....

3 The torrent issue crossed my mind too. They certainly are banned at Huges and Dish, as well as "alternatives" such as Clearwire. In general the connection can be proxied and NAT-ed to heck too.

4 Yeah, Clearwire sucked. They're dead now. I have a lot of graphs I saved for when someone claimed Throttling didn't exist. Yeah, they'd stomp on torrents, but let YouTube and SpeedTest through. Claiming heavy traffic as the reason at 3AM.  But Hughes and Dish have an excuse, they basically have only 1 or 2 satellites in Geosync to cover the whole country. Starlink has thousands, and they only have to serve smaller areas.
