    Default Starlink Speed Tests Looking Promising

    At least 762 working Starlink satellites are in orbit right now. That represents more than one-quarter of all active spacecraft around the planet and nearly half of those in low-Earth orbit. While not enough to provide coverage around the world, Musk says it's plenty to kick off a full public beta test in North America in the next few months.

    That does look promising. How much is the monthly cost? What's the setup cost? Are the T&C any different from regular ISP ones? How is the privacy terms?
    Knowing the solution doesn't mean knowing the method. Yet answering correctly and regurgitation are considered "learning" and "knowledge".

    One thing I have learned from the few ISP launches I have been a part of is a Speedtest means nothing without active users and right now they don't have enough to see if those results can be maintained.

    Don't get me wrong, the project is phenomenal and I am glad that someone took the risk and expense to launch such an ambitious platform but I am reserving all judgement till full sign up and true figures come in.
