    Default Digicel and flow Bankrupt by 2025

    I believe Digicel and Flow, well most isps around the world will be bankrupt by 2025

    When Elon https://www.starlink.com/ is active internet is going to be too competitive for companies like Digicel and Flow

    but the one that I believe will drive a nail in the coffin is Amazon internet service, if you guys don't think this rich **** is not going to include free internet with prime, think again.

    Pluss it can not be controlled by internal governments crazy, maybe the us but that's it.

    Internet access is becoming more of an institutionalized essential service rather than luxury commodity. The ISP landscape will have to change over time.

    It depends on the Latency really and how safe these signals are. I have Prime so I wouldn't mind having two internet sources. Broadband internet on the go like a car would be cool.

    Latency will comparable to land based services, because this is low orbit, older satellite internet orbited hundreds of miles higher so they could use less satellites. The newer network has thousands of satellites

    Call me an Anti-Elonite but I fail to see how this technology will provide greater speed and capacity than what ViaSat offers (and plans to offer) in the abovementioned timeline. Also, Terrestrial networks also have, by then, vastly outstripped their LEO counterparts in raw throughput & capacity. It will take sheer luck for an LEO ISP to outcompete future-proofed terrestrial networks that carry data, voice & video on BOTH mobile & fixed broadband.

    SpaceX’s satellite internet system is designed to offer blazing fast speeds up to 1 gigabit per second.

    The company projects that Starlink latency (or lag time) will be as low as 15 milliseconds.
