    Speaking of "the phone company" I was doing a crane job at the big old Ma Bell building (all brick, no windows, 3 stories, all packed with rows of whatever these things are in the pic) in town a few days ago, and on my way up to the roof got to walk thru the still packed with equipment building. I can't remember the last time I used a hard wired phone, but this place was humming right along, business as usual. Back to satellites....

    I looked into the Beta a few months back, and could have signed up at the time. (I should have!) When ATT finally admitted they could no longer repair the copper DSL switch that supplies my home with a whopping 2 Mbps service, I signed up for Starlink. $99 deposit (today) toward the ±$400 hardware cost when they have capacity to add you. I'm told late 2022 now for my area. Sigh. I'm paying 2X their rate for a Verizon-based solution (30-50 Mbps) in the interim. I just could not go back to the slow DSL solution.

    When I signed up a year ago, they said service in my area summer of '21. Then that estimate slid to fall of '21. Now the latest estimate is summer of '22.

    Meanwhile, I just cancelled my order for a Tesla truck, which is 2 years late (and counting). I think I see a pattern here.

    This is a interesting tracker for all the satelites https://satellitemap.space/

    You easily can see the areas that don't have good coverage yet.
