I placed the order feb 18th for my boss's house in the UP and it's been crickets since.

this was their last email:

Starlink will begin offering service in your area beginning mid to late 2021. Orders will be fulfilled on a first-come, first-served basis. You will be notified via email prior to shipment, and you will be charged the remainder of your balance once your kit ships.

my order is going through today.

Is Starlink still in beta or are they rolling it out for real now?

Still in beta as their satellite colony is growing. Supposed to be “fully mobile” end of 2021

Decided to cancel my preorder. Starlink sent out an email with updated estimate of mid 2022.

I’ve been on Comcast prepaid since May and can’t stand it any more.

Bummer. I keep think about getting this for my dad but that initial $500 buy-in is too steep. He pays $45/mo for shit DSL now, and I told him I'd cover half the difference of the $100/mo for the service (so basically $25/mo). But now they're talking about selling their place and moving to a more urban area, which looks like he'll be able to get fiber.
