I gave up my broadband for Elon Musk’s Starlink satellite internet and it’s a real game changer

Fed-up villagers are flocking to Elon Musk’s satellite internet service because of the terrible speeds of traditional broadband providers.

Thousands in the UK have already signed up to SpaceX’s Starlink, which beams a connection from space.

Aaron Wilkes, from Kent, told The Sun it was a game changer for those left by the big players.

He used to be able to watch Netflix just like that without it caching – but doing anything else on the internet at the same time was impossible.

Now he has scrapped BT and even Sky to rely solely on Starlink and streaming services.

It has gone from speeds of around 25 Mbps (megabits per second) through old copper wires to 300 Mbps from Starlink.

“For a lot of people it’s a game changer of a system,” he said.

“If you’re stuck with really bad connectivity, you can order this online, it’ll ship to you in about seven days, and then just plug it in.”

Now he can play online without any problems.

“It’s not like I get shot all the time in games and don’t realize it, I can play a game like anyone else,” he added.

The service has been a savior for remote areas around the world, neglected by the usual providers.

Price is a big issue though – it costs a lot more at £89/$110.00 per month.

But folks like Aaron, who have little choice for a stable connection, say it’s worth it.

With more than 2,000 satellites in low Earth orbit, experts fear Starlink could cause a serious collision – or imprison us on earth.

Most recently Elon Musk Units donated to Ukraine as the country is struggling with connectivity issues due to the Russian invasion.
