Anyone know/advise if Starlink internet downlink is in US Google fiber ? I thought I saw a message before that Starlink was using Google fiber.
I was referring to the actual internet transit, not the Satellite downlink station.
I maintain an email list for issues specific to starlink here:
https://lists.bufferbloat.net which has multiple experts on it. There
are also quite a few folk on twitter covering what's going on there.
The latest information I had was that they'd started off hooked up to
google's stuff but have been building out their own network wherever
I can say with certainty at least one downlink location is not using Google Fiber, as I am sitting about 1/2 mile from it , and have firsthand knowledge of all glass in the ground around here.
Starlink has nothing to do with Google Fiber. It used to use Google Cloud for routing (BYOIP) in the early days but I am sure this has changed.
AS14593 is not new, they joined the SIX 3+ years ago, from an outside-of-spacex view they have just recently within the past 12 months started putting it into more widespread use.
“they have just recently within the past 12 months started putting it into more widespread use”
That’s a pretty good definition of new.
