      The apology to those of us who live in rural settings is accepted, but the StarLink solution you propose is no solution at all. The reason? Cost. Even with promises of cutting the retail price, StarLink is still well beyond the reach of many.

      Second, StarLink demands a clear sky, according to people I know who are using the service and have the resources to pay for it. That is not an option in many areas where the sky may be obstructed by trees or in urban areas, buildings.

      What will be required is a number of solutions, including StarLink or other LEO systems (there are others out there) , improved wireless coverage (not necessarily 5G) and lower cost to the consumer. I know of people on social assistance, for example, who have to make a choice between spending less on food and shelter and having a smart phone because receiving government social services require it. That’s a larger questions but it indicates the scope of the issue.

      I don’t have the solutions, but I know Elon Musk doesn’t have a magic wand.

      Starlink prices here in Europe are about 1000 EURs as an entry fee, and then 100 EUR per month to use it.

      PS – thanks for the detailed instructions, Deanna. It is suitable for all updates failing.
