I find myself in front of a starlink terminal this morning, and have
been doing various tests. The behavior of their network is like
nothing I've ever seen before, appearing to re-adjust the available
bandwidth on a 10sec interval, and... yes... they have bufferbloat...

Still running quite the large battery of tests at the moment. They are
behind a large cgnat, and
no ipv6 is available, either. I can make available some tests and
packet caps if anyone wants a look.

If anyone would like to drop in on me and help talk me
down^H^H^H^H^H^H^H strategize on how
best to tell 'em about things like fq_codel and cake, I can be found
over here (any login you want, no password) from 7AM PDT through 9AM.
