Anybody else in the UK on the beta got the same?


Yes, pretty much everyone who signed up.

Oh! My 'Escape to the Country' just got a lot more possible!

I signed up for the beta and was notified I could order, but I live in a flat and getting roof access and the cabling would be a pain -- also my Virgin Media is working great, so I didn't order it.

I watched a few videos. Apparently one can use their own router, the 'white' side of the PoE brick will give you a DHCP address. But they are using CGNat according to one of the videos I found. A bit of a drag there, if that can't change. Maybe a higher tier could offer a real IPv4 address in the future. And/or maybe they will get IPv6 happening.

I wouldn’t hold out any hope of fixed or public IPv4 with Starlink. It’s far more likely they jump directly to IPv6 which they have said as much “...is the future”.

Signed up for the beta 2 or 3 weeks back - just had the email saying my order is ready...(I'm based in North Yorkshire).

Wasn't expecting anything until at least middle of the year...not complaining though. Anybody else in the UK on the beta got the same?

Payments processed today on beta orders. Orders actually arriving in 1-3 weeks now apparently. Quite a wide timescale.

My original delivery estimate was this Thursday, but then changed this morning to be today.

For now just set it up on the lawn outside, a few houses/trees/fence nearby, but speedtest app just gave me:

173Mbps down / 22.5Mbps up
(not sure how to post photos on here)

Forgot to add, ping time was 31ms.

Good job alphapapa. That's pretty respectable results I think for something in beta. Hopefully the bandwidths will increase over time and the ping reduce. Did you get a jitter reading?

(Got my delivery today too. A rather large grey box. It's looking like a busy week ahead, so it may still stay in the box until Thursday actually when I can set it up).

Jitter was 1ms (according to the speedtest app) - what does this represent?
