I have a 2nd gen dish, in the mountains in the northern Philippines. I have a wooded ridge north of me, so it was always going to be a bit of a risk. I put it on top of my chimney, highest point on the property, and it shows this:
I have been using it for 48 hrs and don't notice any interruptions. I am considering building a structure to lift it another 5 meters or so.The speed situation is... conflicted. The Starlink in-app speed test gives me this:
However, when I test in Ookla, using a selection of servers from different countries, I never get more than 40 mbps; usually 25-30.
Two questions:1. Which speed reflects the actual functioning speed I will get in use: the Starlink app speed or the third-party speed tests?
2. Does obstruction primarily affect speed or continuity? Wondering how much improvement I'll get from lifting it higher.
