A red-letter day for me!

Services for Real Estate Pros with Marte Cliff Copywriting

On March 29, 2021, I paid my $99 deposit

and signed up for Starlink. At that time, delivery was expected by late summer.

That didn't happen, so I've been struggling along with Hughes Net's slow (and occasionally absent) service. Some days I've thought that if went any slower it would be backing up.

About a month ago, a friend who lives about a mile from me got her Starlink equipment. She had signed up on March 2.

She loves it - and can hardly believe the difference between Starlink and Hughes Net.

I knew it had to be my turn pretty soon, and YES!! I got the email yesterday telling me they were ready to ship.

So - I've been waiting for 17 months - and finally we'll be getting high speed Internet!

Yesterday was a red letter day!

That must be a great feeling Marte to be connected to the internet strongly and in rural areas where the Starlink shines.

I can hardly wait, Jeff! It's been very frustrating with Hughes - especially on days when I needed to get copy to a client and there simply was no service.

Now 17 months tells me poor customer service, all the best for your high speed internet. One of the benefits of living in the big city of Los Angeles we have had high speed internet for at least six or eight years, I cannot phantom what it would be like without it, Endre

Now that is news to celebrate, Marte! I can't imagine waiting 17 months for high speed internet, especially since I've had it for 20 years.

Congrats on getting it installed. We have well-advertised high speed internet but at night it seems to have the brakes on
