Very cool.

tho, they're still being pretty cagey and selective about their beta keys. And the keys are region-locked, you can't travel with them, or move very far.

I guess I fell into the beta hole, never heard anything from them. Randomly went on to check their site, and found it accepting orders. I believe it just went live today. My interpretation is this marks the end of beta. (?)

No, this is just another step of the Beta. The coverage doesn't include most of the globe yet, the satellite density only works above a certain latitude. (South or North) and their current satellites can only do ground-ground relay which means inconsistent support.

I got the email.
Checked it out... too costly for me just to test it out. Worse speeds, lag and price

Would be great for the boonies though

My latitude is about the same as san fran

I plan to install Starlink in the entertainer coaches as soon as it's available for "mobile" applications. This is going to be a huge deal. Huge.

You will get nowhere near 1 gig download speeds, right now 50-150 mbs but should improve by years end

I live in an area where my internet options are Viasat, Hughes and Nomad ( cellular based) which I have now and is $130 a month for around 50 mbs download

Starlink is a big improvement
