Anything else having problems connecting the S21 ultra particular to 5ghz wifi. I doesn't even see the 5ghz hotspot from my laptop but can create 5ghz hotspots.

You could try contacting their customer support and ask them to review the due date. Since they can see when it was shipped, they should be able to do something about it.

However, if were given the 1month free service like some us, I would advise you let it be.

It actually starts counting sometime between the day the router is configured and they day it's shipped which shouldn't be more than 1-2 days apart.

I actually intend on paying for 4 months if they can take it straight, but this is kinda crazy

You canโ€™t pay without an invoice. I donโ€™t know that they have any offers on the service outside the monthly charge. Makes sense because they can increase the price anytime

It's raining heavy and I'm still streaming 4k UHD with no single buffer at 11mbps. Life is fine.
PS since I have gotten Starlink the only time I had slow speed for streaming was the first 20mins I just installed it.

I hope you're doing this with a reliable VPN like Surfshark turned on before you start having problems with Starlink. It's my understanding ISPs aren't favourably disposed to torrenting.

No think am oo. A few years ago I downloaded one movie that was still in the cinemas via torrent. A week later I got an email from the ISP that they got a report of illegal download of their movie from me the client (with the exact title of the movie stated) with plenty of threat of fine if it repeats itself. They said they will let it go because it was my first of such but subsequently, they will involve law enforcement bla bla bla. Since then I have been careful with torrents by making sure by VPN is always on. How they even got my email still beats me. How dey link the whole thing to my identity till today still baffles me.

It's easy! At the time you register with the ISP for their service, you supply an email address, phone number, physical address and some means of identification. So, reaching you isn't a difficult thing. It's the same way the long arms of the law catches up with those into nefarious activities over the internet.

Just use a reliable VPN and have peace of mind. It's Elon Musk's product you're dealing with here. Guy no get joy.

They got to you via your IP address. Your ISP linked your IP address to you via all the information you gave them when you registered for service.
