The issue with 5G is that it is very short range for the service with fast speeds.  And by short range, I mean 100 ft.

SpaceX is firing off the satellites into orbit.  I think both they and amazon are trying to have there service offered sometime this year

I am within 100 feet of space sometimes.  It might work for me.

i haven’t heard of the starling or amazon satellites for internet options. When will this roll out to rural America.

I’m flabbergasted in 2020 why they haven’t found a solution for decent internet service for rural America. I guess western Kentucky and West Virginia are super fucked since they can’t even get cell phone coverage. What happens with 5G? Will it even matter once you got 5G for rural areas

Kinda off topic:

I’m cutting the cord. But I’ve called directtv twice and the runaround to cancel is incredible. They ask for 4 digit PIN numbers I know nothing about.  Pass me to operator after operator.  Then they either leave me rotting on hold or hang up.

I know their ship is sinking, but god damn they are frustrating.   I guess they’ll figure it out when my equipment shows up on their doorstep.

LMAO.

What kind of speeds do you get?  How consistent is it?

The consistency is good.  The speed...5.8 mbps down, 13.7 up right now.  It’s a little better during the day.

Yeah, that stuff is weak.

I have a Verizon Unlimited hockey puck Hotspot that does far better than I expected when I got it back in May.  I'd say 50% of the time I get between 25-35 Mbps.  40% 8-20 Mbps.  10%  < 1 Mbps.

I was already to cancel direct TV and get YouTube TV, and then my signal was really inconsistent over this past weekend.

Looking forward to seeing what Starlink and Amazon's satellites can do when they get in service.   Suppose to be much faster/lower latency than any of the existing crap.

Do they have decent cell service?
We got ours through some guy(bear with me, I know this sounds sketch as fuck) who is offering a service, he sets up this equipment, works similar to the hockey pucks, but it 100x more powerful.  It unthrottled, unlimited, and fast enough to stream Netflix, Woopigs, whatever.
My wife works from home doing teleconference type shit, and it works fine for that.
It uses bandwidth from either AT+T, or Verizon...I’m not clear on the witchcraft part of it, but he buys bandwidth from the carriers and then does some sort of magic.  It works, I know that.

If they might be interested, pm me or something and I’ll send you his contact info.

LMAO.
