First off... Thank you Mr. Musk! Sure this might be an opportunity to showcase the technology but it is also badly needed and is helping thousands of people.

The real problem with our cutting edge technology (cellphones or customary Internet connection) is that it gets desperately stuck when most needed. It's same wherever you go ☹️

Starlink is wonderful especially if the routers are given without cost. Starlink routers (Costco Japan has them) are quite pricy. Monthly service is also quite expensive.
