Can you give us some average speeds? Just out of curiosity. I saw a post from another user yesterday who was getting something like 4K Mbps. That's pretty insane.
?? 4k mbs -- not possible, not even sure what device could achive 4000mbps let alone any kind of wifi

One year with Starlink. We are partially obstructed with a giant avacado tree but we stream tv without difficulty and with minor amounts of blue circles. 500us for the setup, 2,900 pesosmonthly. No cap on usage. Speeds vary widely . Our daughter has the same thing and is fortunately not obstructed. She works from home on her computer .
if your input is meeting your needs you rarely check speed. I get anywhere from 30-150 mps. just checked and I’m getting 53 mps downand 15 up at 4:50AM. Damn that tree!
i understand that Claro fiber optic is considered a better option but its not available at our house. Previous services with various wireless providers were very,very unsatisfactory.

I didn't believe it either but it was a video a guy posted when he connected.

FWIW, my Altice Fiber Optic line has given me 220 Mbps ever since I installed it.

Average speed I get is 150 down 15 up. Maximum I saw - 320. Minimum during heavy rain - 50.

They are launching new satellites like crazy which means coverage will continue to improve in the coming months.

I wondering if anyone in punta cana has it?
I am down in the Azua province, we really had no other option that worked very well- too rural to get fiber, everything else came and went with power outages or too many people using it.... Anyway been happy with the Starlink- have had one for about 1 year and the other only a couple months
