I have taken a gamble with Starlink - they let you select a different shipping address to service address so I placed an order for an address currently serviced (which I don’t live at) to be delivered to my home address which is out of service area.
It’s around 12 miles straight line between the service address and my home.
This is a bit of an experiment. Starlink is meant to ONLY work at the service address however there are threads on Reddit where people have done this same thing and have some kind of service which is faster than standard or other broadband tech available.
Starlink do have a 30 day full refund as well so I figure I’ll try it and see if it works.
Apparently for others that have done this Starlink have offered a full refund or to suspend the service until that area is served. To be honest this might be the best option to keep hold of the dish until it is in a service area.
Quite honestly I’m fed up of the lack of clarity from openreach on my area for FTTP and for Cityfibre and Lightening fibre getting to my part of town this year. So I am willing to take a gamble on this.
It says 2-3 weeks for delivery so I will have to wait a little while.
