I live in a rural area and my only internet option is ADSLthrough a phone company. 5 Mb/s down, .4 up. My brother lives in Duluth and a number of friends and they all have 100 Mb/s or greater. I want to get on the StarLink beta list too.And virtually no one talks about them.
My comments about their (Musk's) self promotion do not negate that SpaceX is doing amazing things. I have zero internet connectivity at home because the current satellite offerings suck, and I would love to get onto the StarLink beta test list. But it's a lot like when it seems the whole world picks one very talented and very beautiful actress who is on all the talk shows, and they ignore the other very talented, very attractive A-list stars. As Josh said, there are lots of fan boys. We look at that actress on a talk show and say "She must have a really good agent"; Musk is his own really good agent.
