Hi,
   I gather it is not that suitable for moving reception.
Sat dish must be stable and not move from one cell coverage area to another without a change approval and capacity available.
Cheers

Yes. At the moment it is geolocked to a small region. I understand they are working on a mobile version but many more satellites need to be in place for that to work.

We've got a 100meg plan with Telstra. They're currently giving us the 250meg plan for nix as a tester.
I don't notice any real difference between the two, but Mark says he notices an improvement with mega-downloads (as expected).
We're fibre to the modem wall socket.

Happy enough with our NBN, not as fast as those screenshots but I am only paying for a 50Mb plan.
I am going to install a home network though.
The wifi in the back of the house where the router is, is good with last Friday night 75Mb download. But moving to the front room, the download speed dropped to 42Mb, only 8 meters away. No wall in between the router and tester.
Then moving to the front room with 1 wall and 20-25 meters away, download 23Mb.
Signal strength went all the way down to -82dBm on 5GHz and -72dBm on 2,4GHz.

Going for ethernet in almost every room and two wireless access points.

Got to love the roll out- NOT!.  We are still on ADSL.  They installed a FW tower just up the road from us a few months ago (1.1km away as the crow flies) and yet according to the roll-out map, our place and the neighbour across the road are not eligible to be connected to NBN.  I could if I tried see the tower I reckon.  Every other place around us is eligible including a much closer neighbour (200m away)
I've put a call into ABB to see if we can get the ludites (NBN) to reconsider their stupidity!
Another Shitty  part about the NBN roll-out is that Optus used to offer fixed 4g in our area until the FW tower was installed - it is no longer available.
Starlink is starting to look very attractive at the moment.  All this and only 40km from the centre of Brisbane.  Christ you'd think that I live 500km past Cunnamulla!

Been on a trial of ultrafast nbn for a few months now and its about to end. I did take up an offer and switched over to it permanently.  Generally it didn't make that much difference to things but some things much better. For the price difference I couldn't not do it.
