Hi All,

A few folks are already online. There are still gaps in the service but that will change as new satellites are launched

Id love his speeds of 25M. I'm in the middle of Anchorage and can't get 10M if I'm lucky. Last Thursday I could only get 1.4M when trying to watch Thursday night football on Prime. So much for that.

I've had my order in for Starlink for 18 monthes and nothing yet.

I was just looking yesterday as we are doing alaska next year and I looked it up again today.

Yesterday: According to the official website, coverage moved north about 100miles from where it was a month ago (catching the panhandle and most of BC/Alberta except for the northmost 100miles) and they show the rest having service 1st quarter 2023.

Today: Map is updated. Service is now showing as far as Watson Lake/Seward/Homer. After a dead zone, from fairbanks north they show service to the arctic ocean across all of alaska and canada.

With this update, I think we are getting starlink in the spring.

PS: Interestingly I'm in Europe and the website is giving me the price in Euros. For the RV plan it's 100euro/month and 480euro for equipment (US Price $130/$600).

My Nephew is at

63.74452012599891, -68.49106010520651

He is getting between 25 and 180 megs down. There are still lots of short drop outs but it is 5 times faster than the best ground based system in the community.

Just looked today and they show coverage for all of N. America.

Still need to see how well it works in the far north but moving in the right direction.
