Same experience I had, When I called them last week, Only thing I did was to go to www.dhl.com, put the 10- digit tracking number and then added my phone number and email for update notifications..

Yesterday I got notification it has been delivered to lagos office, this morning i got another text message it was out for delivery around 8:30am, in less than 10 minutes i got a call from DHL they were at my office for delivery here in Abuja. (my body de itch me to ditch work begin go house to install lol!)

So, I am sure you will be fine las las, It seems the item gets updated once it gets to their lagos office because the initial tracking from Starlink shows no useful info.

easyyoke:
Is anybody having issues with the delivery of their starlink dish? Starlink sent me message since Friday that the dish has shipped. As suggested by some people on this thread, I called DHL to ask if my phone number was included, they said No, It wasnt included that I should go and update my number on starlink's website. I said my number is already updated on starlink as I can clearly see my number on my starlink account. I asked the DHL customer agent, if He can help me add my number... He said No, that only the shipper(Starlink) can edit/add new details to the shipment. What is the way forward guys? DHL Website shows the item will get to me on Thursday. But how will they reach me?

the same thing is happening to me now. I just contacted the DHL office staff close to where I live and gave her my tracking details. She has agreed to notify me once my starlink comes to their DHL office. I will go to their office with my ID card once she notifies me my starlink has arrived

Its crazy how nigerians always want to twist and turn things around just to make money not minding the consequences. I have been seeing so many sellers advertising and I wondered how they even got about ordering multiple units with their email address or maybe they used multiple accounts as well. SMH

We spoil everything. We abuse everything. Doesn't matter what. We will abuse it.

I think it'll be the RV version that's been sold like that.

1. Starlink router has 'okay' range at best. If you are going to use on more than one floor, you need an extender. If you have money. Get a Triband one like the XE75.

2. Same people that installed my Solar Panels installed my Starlink.

3. Main Deco plugs into the Starlink and becomes a router on it's own. Then you can plug in other decos around as many as you want and they'll all talk to each other and create a WiFi bubble so that you always stay connected all around the house without disconnecting and connecting to another router / extender. Mesh network. It's seamless. Starlink has their own Mesh system. One is $185 but I paid same amount for 3 Deco X55.

4. I think so yes. Just make sure it's for Gen 2 Dishy. They would usually write it in the description or product name.

Alot of Nigerians have been reselling Starlink for 580K. Nonsense. Abusing it already. How will buyers pay for their renewal? Which account did they order it with? If they need to change address, how? Anyways, these 'unnecessary' vendors are the cause of the shortage. People will not find real work or business, they turn everything into business.

Below are...
- Main Deco Mesh Node Connected to the Starlink Router via LAN Adapter.
- Screenshot from the Deco app

Is reselling it an issue here cos I see a lot of adverts on ebay for the same Starlink? There are some folks that even sell for as high as 600K on Jiji. It's a pity there'll be people who'll fall mugu for such. Knowledge is truly power!

Unfortunately, those buying them used in Nigeria might have payment issues like you rightly pointed out no thanks to our lical payment systems.

RV was never at any point available in Nigeria till it was scrapped and changed to Roam globally. Subscribers in Nigeria were only allowed to pay additional $10 for portablity. Portability was later scrapped and Nigerians now have access to Roam.

Again, your entire statement is incorrect.

RV has been available since late January when Starlink officially launched in Nigeria.

Portability has been a separate add-on since Starlink launched in Nigeria. Also, portability is still available in Nigeria.

You may use the pole, just make sure that your dishy has clear view of the sky from that position, especially to the North.

Speed has been between 50 to 70 since, installed it today though, hope this would improve? I installed it on the scaffolding that’s taller than my 3 storey, Clear view of the sky. My devices can’t see the 5ghz. On my iPhone 14PM, it appears and disappears almost immediately.

I get 40-60mbps using my phone which only detects the 2.4ghz frequency. My laptop detected the 5ghz frequency and I get around 140-170mbps when I connect to the 5ghz. I also mounted mine on the roof today. I played some online pc games with it (halo infinite, overwatch and apex legends). Average ping in all the games was 140-160ms and it was smooth most of the time. Was connected to London server in apex legends. I can't see the server I was connected to in halo infinite and overwatch but it is most likely a server in Europe. Starlink latency is very similar to mtn latency in online games but starlink is more stable/consistent. MTN latency fluctuates a lot. Sometimes it goes from 140ms to 300ms and messes up your gameplay though there is no MTN 5g in my area

I experienced same on my first Starlink the first day I installed it. But surprisingly, the next morning all my devices were able to see the 5ghz. If it doesn't appear by tomorrow, restart the router.

Yet to test it on PS. My laptop isn’t detecting the 5ghz, but it detects MTN 5G own. I hope the speed picks. Need to run some downloads overnight
