Kits and Starlink

Saw this sign in Peavey Mart yesterday.... so tempted to get it but.... $26 so a pic will do.

The day finally arrived for Bambi and Peter to have their playdate. Brad came with me just in case the Mrs got nasty with Peter but everything went fine -- well, lets just say he knew what to do but he had some confusion on which end was up -- he figured it out eventually.

L-R: Peter and Bambi

A little snuggle

In order to ensure that Bambi is pregnant I put her in again the next day... because he's a rookie I wanted to make sure.

Also yesterday a local rabbit breeder reached out because she had a doe available and she knew I was looking for a second one. During a rather busy day, we managed to run out to her farm and pick her up.

Gertrude (Gertie)
Gertie is breeding age but we will wait 2 weeks to allow her to settle in and so we don't get overwhelmed by kits (baby bunnies).

When we were still in BC, we ordered Starlink satellite internet... I made sure to change our address info when we moved and yesterday the dish arrived. They upgraded us to the new super duper version for free too. 

While you do need to pay for the equipment ($600), the internet service itself is the same price as our previous internet. 

Not having to go and reset the internet 3 x a day.... Priceless.

Shipping Box

No mistaking this is SpaceX internet

All the pieces were intact

Super simple instructions.... total plug and play.

Comes with its own router

All set up. The dish rotates and aligns itself and even heats up when it senses snow.

All set up and ready to go

Our previous internet download speed was 18.2 and upload speed was 3.43
and we had to reset the router on average 3 times a day as it would glitch out. (Xplornet)

With Starlink our internet download speed is 193.9 and upload speed is 13.9

We have not yet had to reset anything. 

Once the system is turned on the app on your phone asks you to create the wifi network by giving it a name and password. 

Thats it. 

Kinda disappointing for a techie, really but... super simple so that anyone can do it.
