Spacex seems to be moving right along with Starlink  (once on the page scroll down)

looks like they're about to cover the planet in high speed connectivity

this is especially good for the remote (spaced out) among us

Re-purposed coaxial cable to the curb here.   Actually I am quite happy with 120 down and 7 up.  Much better than the (never fully) ADSL 15 down and (never fully) 1 up that was the only non-satellite option before.  Now that was painful!   Still enough to stream 320 kbps RP though.  

Apparently our ISP can provide up to 250 Mbps download speeds on coaxial cable elsewhere in the interior of BC.  Not sure why that option is not available here.

Many, many factors - who else is on your segment, and what are they doing, what route is your traffic taking, who configured the router that your traffic is using, how are they prioritizing traffic.... Past performance is no guarantee of future results...
 
Cox rocks! My pension from the 8 years I worked with them is more than the one I would have gotten for the 19 years I worked for the system here in town. I opted for a lump sum instead.

Yes.   Download and upload speeds are positively correlated.  For serious professional purposes, higher upload speeds are helpful.  That said SL's stats are pretty decent.  We get the same download speed if I shut down the VPN tunnel.   Lee's upload speed is better than ours.   7 Mbps upload — what we have — is not bad.  

I would want upload speeds  in excess of 5 Mbps and download speeds in excess of 50 Mbps.  Lower latency is nice too.  250 Mbps download would be ideal but not always available.

For gamers, the more the merrier.

but I recently stayed in a French 19th century apartment that had been remodeled and had gigabit. This seems pokey.
