What kind of news are you looking for? My understanding is that it won't be in Alaska until 2020 and you need a mobile that will work with 5G, which are coming out next year as well.

I saw on infowars that 5g is going to fry our brains, cause cancer and allow for government mind control so it's probably best to stick with 4g or less for these very legitmate reasons.

My property had almost non existent cell phone service. You had to pray to the cell service gods, stand completely still and hope for the best just to make a call. I got a weboost brand cell booster off Amazon, installed the outside antenna approx 25 feet in the air and now I can stream pornhub on my phone without buffering downtime or watch netflix on my TV using a hotspot with my super duper ATT unlimited plus plan and of course never drop a call. It's quite amazing.

ETA: I now see your talking about something completely different. I've never met anyone satisfied with satellite internet up here. So if the new gen 5 or whatever satellite internet isn't way better than the old, chances are high it will be terrible.

Haha, I know that satellite TV works well up here, but when I first moved up I had a SiriusXM radio and had to cancel it as it wouldn't work at all this far north. You can see some satellites flying by on certain clear nights and they must be for something. Maybe Hughesnet has got a new orbit pattern or whatever and it works better. It would be interesting to know if it did work well up here, because there would be many people interested in having Hughesnet if it was reliable and somewhat fast.

Wasn't Elon musk launching thousands of low orbit satellites to make high speed internet available everywhere on the planet? Had to look it up again, but here it is
https://www.theverge.com/2019/10/22/...-internet-2020 42,000 satellites orbiting in a constellation pattern, seems promising if true and works well. Supposedly available mid next summer, but musk is famous for delays. Would be a gamechanger.

“As demand escalates for fast, reliable internet around the world, especially for those where connectivity is non-existent, too expensive or unreliable, SpaceX is taking steps to responsibly scale Starlink’s total network capacity and data density to meet the growth in users’ anticipated needs,” a company spokesperson said in a statement in reference to the new ITU filing.- from above link

I wonder if you can hear the dark knight satalite which is in polar orbit when it flys over head.
