We got ours also......Just as we sold our house here in Florida and the new owners are taking over my account!

Love it!

Couldn't have worked out better.

Soon come.

@xxxrudexxx 

I confirmed my order on Saturday.

I'm looking forward to receiving my kit.

You can go into Google maps and locate the Google+ address of your property.  Starlink will allow you to sign up with that.  When you confirm your order (through a link they should send you), you can then enter your shipping and billing address.  

They also have an app for your phone that you can download and use to make sure you have a good location for it with clear sky access.

So ...

has anyone connected and turned on the Starlink system in the VI yet?

Does it work well?

Thanks much for your thoughts and/or suggestions.

I just received my notice that mine shipped yesterday evening. I'm guessing that several of us should receive them in the next week or so. It looks like they're using DHL for shipping to STX.

@rewired According to the tracking, DSL should be dropping mine off tomorrow (Friday).  Fingers crossed it works well here.

Yes, several folks I know here on STX are up and running with Starlink since getting their kits on Friday.

They're reporting speeds >150 mbps and some up to 300 mbps all of which is many times faster than anything offered by our local providers. The reported average seems to be about 250 mbps.

For what its worth, I've got the BBVI Business Platinum (up to 52 mbps) and right now I'm running at the usual 15 mbps. It rarely gets better than that.

So...I'm excited to receive my kit this week via DHL.

Just received my customs clearance notice from DHL and stopped by their office on STX to pick it up.

It looked like they had 40-50 more to deliver...
