He said this is starlink thread, so he is expected to be transparent with us.

Most people still think the price on starlink page is real. I bet he paid more than double what was stated on the starlink page

Sorry Baba, I missed your question. I didn't exchange dollars. Just added funds and paid. However, I believe PayDay should be charging at 750/755 per $

That's fairly decent. Awaiting my ETA, going to use my DSTV mount for it.

I got starlink and used my dstv mount too. By this I mean, I removed dstv dish. No more giving them 14k monthly to get football channels.
With starlink you can use iptv which is cheaper and watch all dstv channels plus 18k other channels around the world

I got it and returned mine after 7 days and got my full refund. It was a waste. First off the thing only uses NEPA or direct electricity, the day NEPA do me she for 2 days I had no light and my small solar died, the next day I returned it. Plus the speed was not significant

I de Niger state and I get 270 mbps.
How was yours slow?
Even 50mbps is very fast and OK.
I use solar so I've light 24/7. Why use this with nepa?
Also a tip to get high speed is by connecting to starlink via 5 GHz WiFi and not 2.4ghz. 5 gets you to almost 300. 2.4ghz gives you 20-100

That's cheap. What has been your experience so far? Please be brutally honest about your experience.

Also, is it Nigerian owned? It would be nice to know the name so we can consider using it as alternative to dstv

please get the name. That's what I need. My Airtel 300gb is serving me for now. This starlink is alot of problems. Plus I only need to use this at home, so if I'm outside I will have to buy data again. Unlike my Airtel router which I can just carry or put in my car while I drive to anywhere. I'm not looking for where to spend money, but how to save it the more. You can snap the IPTV and post it here let's see😔

You shouldn't be using internet if you haven't resolved nepa issues,

Most it guys earning above 500k a month in Nigeria have that resolved already

lame comment. Is the starlink for people earning over 500k all for the whole Nigerians? If you think it for people earning 500k, I'm sorry starlink will fold highest 6 months in Nigeria, the people earning such are not significant enough to sustain them.

the next day you returned it? Via waybill or what? Abi na computer village you for buy your own?

A Starlink kit is not something you just wake up and return the next day, you f**king liar. You have to first request a return, and then await a mail with stuff you need to print out and attach to your box.
