Last 2 replies look like advert. Don't use any Cardify lol.

Payday is the best. They are even recommended on Starlink website.

- Payday
- Chippercash
- Gotok

It's what i recommend. Anything else, you are on your own. Lol

It is not a paid advert, it is what I used and I am only trying to share my opinion. You should just respect other's opinions rather than force yours down their throat. Chipper, Payday and probably Gotok are options to explore, but I used Cardify. If that's not pleasing to your ears, stay off my submission.

They seem to be one of the best around. Wanted to use Grey on AliExpress yesterday and found out that Payday was actually better. Ended up using PayDay on AliExpress. Worked perfectly fine.

I may have downloaded a torrent. Why do you ask?

I heard they send warning to American accounts download torrents. I hope they don't do that here.

Unfortunately, i had to return mine on Saturday. I initiated a 'Return and Refund' on Friday. I made a post on it and shared my experience. I subsequently got my refund on Monday.
dustmalik:

My brother, I had to return my Starlink. It was really frustrating me. I strongly believe mine was a defective one. The dish, I believe, was the problem. It looked used. On delivery, It was very dusty and had markings on it like it's been used. The cable and router looked very new though.

The good thing about Starlink is that, if you are not satisfied with it and you are still within the 30day window, you can easily return and ask for a refund, and that was what I did. The whole process doesn't take more than 5 minutes. I simply cancelled my subscription and ticked the option of returning my hardware. I was sent a confirmation of my cancellation immediately via mail, and I was informed that eligiblity of hardware return is being checked. Within 3 minutes, I received another mail that contains the RMA(Return Merchandise Authorization), it also contains the waybill and the supplementary document to printout and attach to the Starlink pack. I have returned the package to DHL. It should get to Starlink latest Wednesday.

So, once Starlink receives the package, they inspect it to make sure everything is in order. Then the refund process begins.

By the way, the Starlink kit was delivered to Starlink yesterday.

My pc has no 5ghz WiFi, so it connected via 2.4ghz. It downloaded with between 1-4MB per second (not megabits).
I can't say how long cos I left the pc for a long while came and it finished.

Using my tablet that connects with 5 ghz, I have downloaded torrents with speed 7-12MB per sec (not megabits). I believe with a good seeded torrent it can get to 24MB or over 200mbps.
Torrent speeds can vary a lot due to many factors and not necessarily your b Internet speed

Actually, that only happens when Starlink presumes their service isn't available in your location because they don't recognize your address. The solution is choose the nearest recognized service address to your address that is within 1 to 10km radius.

Choose a recognized service address nearest to your actual address. I would advise 1 to 5km radius.

So should I cancel the order I made and request for refund so I can reorder with another address?

Try to modify your service address to a recognized one, see if it allows you to complete the payment. If that doesn't work, cancel and request for refund. Then go ahead and order afresh.
