    Haven't received it yet, as I said, hopefully by June. And by then, SpaceX should have a lot more in orbit.

    If you don't mind me asking, what did it set you back? Monthly scrip cost?

    The service itself costs $99 per month, while the equipment is $499 (one-time fee).

    Would be fantastic for me if it doesn't require one location.... I would camp more often if I could be reachable in an emergency at work, or if I could work from camp

    I work from home anyways, so why not do it somewhere pretty?

    How do you mean? I do not believe it's locked to just one location.
