Mongolian address. I don’t have residency in the UK. My understanding is that it works by location and can’t be moved around. Yet. Has that changed? The Mongolian regulators needs to approve it before it’d work, as far as I know.

Unfortunately we have the best options available in Mongolia already and they are still woeful yet costly. I also had to get a 4g booster plus antenna and stick it on a mast to amplify the signal. We’re lucky we’re within range compared to typical herders who can’t get any signal.

City speeds are decent but we’re 32km (about 20 miles) from the city with mountains between us.

Starlink will be awesome if/when we can get it.

Yes, that was my current understanding too, but your lines was confusing me a little bit.

I guess, that Starlink has their permission to operate its products in the country - otherwise they wouldn´t give the possibility to offer it to customers there.

Maybe Starlink needs to solve the security, that the Mongolian accesses can not be used in the neighbor countries RU & CN.

I’m guessing demand exceeds supply for Starlink. Lots of people want it but they can only make so many dishes and electronic components.

It’s a bit expensive for Mongolians budgets but there are enough well-off people who will pay up.

I’m also guessing the big internet providers in Mongolia might lobby against Starlink but they can’t possibly offer an alternative that would offer nationwide coverage. So I doubt they’ll be able to block it.
