We live in area with the only option being Viasat which has a well deserved negative reputation so I have waited 18 months for Starlink move me up the wait list to delivery. Set it up yesterday and zero obstructions on roof. Issue is the performance is no where near the promised or hoped for and in the last 18 months Viasat has improved even on CS and Starlink with it's very limited CS and has raised prices. Starlink is running just slightly better speeds at generally 50 mbps versus Viasat running 30-45 mbps. Latency is similar. Starlink has shown no outages in the 24 hours and the pricing is about the same between the two except I just paid a hefty upfront cost for equipment and roof mounts. I have the 30 days to refund soooooo 1) can I or should I expect Starlink to get better? 2) How long can I expect Starlink equipment to last? 3) If Starlink satellite stops working how soon and what is cost to replace as my experience with Viasat on replacing has been a case of a few days? 4) Given my choices is it best to stay with the familiar flawed system or the one that seems over hyped for my area?
