Does HMax have any beta testers? I have seen some you tube videos with speed tests around 100 mbps, with the promise of 1 gbps in the future. The closest tester I have heard about was in Idaho.

I've looked at it, but it is not cost effective for me. I can get better speeds for a lower monthly cost and without having to buy $500 worth of rooftop gear. It would be worth it thought if one lived in the middle of nowhere.

For me, it would be a major step up. My current wireless isp can only offer me 25mbps at $100 a month, but I live in the country.

My ISP is very good, but that much money for that slow of speed is pathetic.

How does one become a beta tester? I'd like to look into that. Thinking about selling all my worldly possessions, buying a nice RV, and living out of it. Starlink would allow me to keep my job.

If you need to use a VPN to connect to anything you should check to ensure it will work. My wife and I both work from home and connect to our clients over VPN. A while back I was looking to buy some land in the country and use satellite internet but found out our VPN's didn't work well with a Satellite connection because of the extra lag. I don't know if it's still an issue but you might want to check if you require VPN connectivity.
