Starry provides fixed wireless internet service in a handful of cities, mostly to apartment or condo complexes. In dense urban areas like these, you’re likely to be able to choose from multiple reliable connection types with good speeds. Starry is able to offer download speeds from 200 Mbps to 1 Gbps, comparable to cable or fiber. Because it uses high-frequency spectrum, Starry can reach faster speeds than other fixed wireless providers.
Starry’s upload speeds far exceed what is possible with cable, but don’t reach the same upload speeds as fiber. Nevertheless, Starry’s upload speeds are more than enough for gaming and video calls.
Starry is worth considering if you want good speeds without having to worry about contracts or data caps, and it’s often cheaper than comparable cable and fiber plans.
Starry has no contracts, so you won’t be charged any fees when you cancel. You can cancel online, in the app, or by contacting customer service. If you terminate your service in the middle of your monthly billing cycle, you’ll be refunded for any portion of a month you’ve already paid for but didn’t receive service. Equipment has to be returned within 15 days of service deactivation.
It is possible to temporarily pause service for 30–180 days if you want to avoid being charged while going on vacation without having to cancel.

The HughesNet Gen5 service plans are designed to deliver download speeds of 25 Mbps and upload speeds of 3 Mbps, but individual customers may experience different speeds at different times of the day. Speeds and uninterrupted use are not guaranteed and may vary based on a variety of factors including: the configuration of your computer, the number of concurrent users, network or Internet congestion, the capabilities and content of the websites you are accessing, network management practices as deemed necessary, and other factors. When you connect to the HughesNet service using Wi-Fi, your experience will vary based on your proximity to the Wi-Fi source and the strength of the signal.
