SpaceX's Starlink: Overhyped and underpowered to meet broadband needs of Rural America, say analysts

Fully underwhelmed

We had fiber optic line running down our road for over 15 years and not a single home can connect to it.. phone company offers dsl, 3mb/s. Only preforms at 1mb/s on best days, currently use Hughes net, very limited on data, sometimes might hit 3 mb/s. Usually it around .7 mb/s. Cellular seems best but data amount is the worst. So it seems as if they are all failing. So why bash musk at least he's trying to give options. Maybe it is only a stop gap but who cares. Of all options, the fiber burns me the most because of money spent to install it yet no one gets to use it. And that guy ( bolton) complains about subsidies.
