I'm just waiting for the WiFi solution that lets me get super fast connection wherever I am. In 2016 I don't want the daily struggle of dealing with connectivity issues.

@bentossell We all feel your pain. That's what brings us to work everyday at Starry.

I was bummed when Aereo had to close shop. Starry seems like just as bold of an initiative.

Given how much people hate their internet provider an alternative is always welcome. let s hope the founder of Aereo this time pulls it off

Does the have a monthly cost? All I see is the price for the router.

@joe_blau looks like this is currently a router only with the potential of a proprietary ISP solution to come with a Boston beta rollout out this "summer" aka this will be a long time coming before it competes with even google fiber let alone the larger players.

@joe_blau I asked support yesterday and was told, yes there would be one, but was not provided with how much it would be.

@hiimfloyd @joe_blau We want Starry Internet to be affordable, but we're still a little too far out to talk exact numbers. We'll have less vague responses as we get closer to rolling out our Beta in Boston this summer :)

“Try unplugging the router,” said no Starry user ever. Even without the internet-over-airwaves side of things, the route itself looks like something that's been a long time coming. Finally a router that actively monitors and archives your internet speeds, can tell you which devices are using up what bandwidth, and shows you what's right or wrong with display instead of blinking lights. WANT!
