My normal ISP got shutdown. New one gives me an 8MB throttled SIM (SMH).
Supposed to get an 'unthrottled' one delivered to me tomorrow.
Paid my deposit for StarLink. Hope they come through in the next few months.

Why is it so expensive though? Surely at that price there would be more competetion.

Is it the long distances involved?

Distance limits my choices. Geo-satellite or Cellular provider is about it. Problem with both is they don't 'really' want us as a customer, they are forced to offer something. They do, by GB. So, somewhere in the hidden abyss of AT&T there's a method to provide unlimited data (up to 1TB) at LTE speeds to a fixed location. I have to pay between $100-250 to leverage that option through a middle-man rather than pay $50 directly.

I figure as soon as Starlink comes out of beta and looks to be a popular option good ol' capitalism will create a wealth of affordable options to me.

You don't need much bandwidth for UT..but pl is horrible to have.

If much rather have lower bandwidth without pl than higher bandwidth with pl
