A little while ago I blogged with excitement about Starlink coming to Ireland. It's early days yet, but reviews from the other side of the Atlantic are looking pretty good.
Jeff Geerling shared a great write-up of the setup process. Silly router aside, it's impressively fast and reliable.
Jeff recorded these stats (a few days worth):
- Download: 106 Mbps
- Upload: 16.1 Mbps
- Ping: 40.58 ms
That's far faster and - I think - cheaper many most wireless internet services available in Ireland.
It'll be interesting to see how speeds increase over time and meet, or even exceed, fixed-cable services. I'm getting 1GB+ from Virgin Media in my home at the moment. Quite a difference.
