    It would be a decent option, however $120 a month is just too high for it to worth it. Here in Europe we have ultra fast cable and decent satellite internet for €30-40 a month. Starlink will be a good choice when they start to offer their services for much cheaper. Here no one in their right mind would pay that much for satellite internet, the speed is far slower than cable and have alternatives for the fraction of it’s price.

      $120/mo. for 100Mbps at 25ms. latency is too expensive for internet with a dish that fits in your backpack and works ANYWHERE IN THE WORLD? That is a completely affordable price and is mind blowing it is that cheap for what it offers. Most people in the US pay around $70 for worse performance that is tied to a specific address. Oh yeah, it also does not require precise calibration – you just point it toward the sky and it works! Starlink is the end-game solution for off-the-griders. And the price will come down even further over the next few years. Starlink mini dish will be a game changer.

      @@joshDotJSi agree with everything other than it eventually coming down in price. especially since its a musk company (like they no longer include a charging cable with your tesla…) this is the cheapest it’ll ever be.

      @@joshDotJS I’m not sure if they actually enforce it but the $120/month price is for residential. They can enforce it if they want to because they have geo coordinates of the receiver’s location (your home). If you want to roam around (RVs, nomads, and campers), the price is $150/month. I doubt their lowest price ($120/month) will come down UNLESS they have a serious competitor. At this point it is a monopoly so they have no reason to lower their price.

      Off grid meaning off away from existing electrical grid a.k.a independent on energy consumption.
      Not off “living status” nowhere to be contacted. smh…

      Oxford Language and Wikipedia designate the general term “Off Grid” is usually used to describe the practice of living without the use of public utilities. So he did use the term acceptably as most people interperet and use it, though for sure there are some people that have different or more refined definitions of the same expression. He uses a private company to access the internet and he is free to choose from a number of options in the private sector. He isn’t using government cables connected to his home.
