Ever since gazillionaire Elon Musk got high with Joe Rogan on Rogan’s podcast…
This is even above and beyond his self-confessed, and self-admiring, weird megalomaniacal Napolean Bonaparte complex.
But I’m not here to bash on Elon today*.
Because I recently logged into his Starlink network.
And let me tell you…
After twenty plus years living out in the country where the only access to the internet I have is through my phone’s hotspot…
My life has been revolutionized.
No hyperbole when I say that.
For instance, my son gifted me a video game that, to play it, I had to download it onto my computer via the Steam app.
It was an 80+gig file.
It took only a little over 3 hours to download it.
Steam clocked its peak download speak in at 197.6 Mbps.
A file that large literally, again, no hyperbole here, it literally would have taken me over 3 days to download.
Which explains why I am not much of a gamer.
I probably wouldn’t be even if I had decent internet these past couple decades…
But at least now I have the capacity to be so if I choose.
So despite all his many tech bro flaws, I thank him…
And I look forward to the other weird tech bro gazillionare Jeff Bezos entering into the satellite internet race.
Rumor has it, our Amazon Overlord is planning on a network with close to 500 Mbps download speeds.
Bring it! 🚀📡🛰️
*Yes, I’m aware of the unfortunate controversy surrounding him and Ukraine regarding Starlink access as reported in the new biography (ad) about him by Walter Isaacson.
