            This reminds me of the old Optusnet Cable days of the early 00s. My mate had it and it was unlimited (fair use policy), maxed out at 10Mbps while everyone else had 512kbps ADSL (1/20th the speed). But it was by virtue of hardly anyone being on it. After a couple of years everyone was on it leeching and the speed became a joke. Let’s see how Starlink goes.

                Yep, it'll be no different to cable, 3g, 4g, etc. Fun until the unwashed masses join in and ruin it. But excellent for those on the move or who can't get a cable

                Doubt this will be the case tbh. The SL sats are on orbital paths which also have to cover areas with much higher population densities than Australia. So from a satellite perspective (the expensive part), there is a chance Australia will be overprovisioned. I doubt they'd skimp on the ground stations being they would be comparatively cheap. The only place that could potentially be an issue would be Sydney/Melbourne due to their population density but even then each satellite has a throw of ~50k kmsq which would put areas like NY+Philly and several regions in Europe and a number of cities across Asia at a higher density level.

                Perhaps I'm naive and overly hopeful but as long as the price remains higher than ~250Mbps NBN and 5G plans and the cost of the initial satellite stays high there shouldn't be that many people opting for this over NBN/5G.

        Absolutely. I get 67mbps on a 100mbps plan(line limitation) and pay 89 per month for it. If I switch back to 50mbps plan, then I will be getting 45mbps average which I am not happy with.

            Unless you need unlimited, perhaps consider 5G?

                I need 700GB atleast

                    Depends on your location, this might be a better value. I seldom have problem and getting good speed, usually around 200mbps.

                        @orangutan: I probably might try it or optus, both seem to have 250mbps but how are the dropouts? I might try them as optus I think gives a month free.
