What Starlink Users Have To Say About Gaming On Satellite Internet

When reading reviews about Starlink, it’s essential to keep in mind the kinds of games that are being played — “Animal Crossing” or “Stardew Valley” aren’t affected by network conditions like FPS and racing games. Every review provides a snapshot of the service for customers with a console or gaming PC. So far, they’re mostly positive: Starlink is good for gaming but not great, according to social media users.

Starlink customers shared their experiences in several social media posts and Reddit threads in 2022, including a few dozen responses in a Reddit post requesting users’ “honest experiences” with the company. One user responded, “Occasional issues, but not nearly often enough for me to get upset over it. Good ping, very few disconnects.” Many others shared similar sentiments, though a common theme continually popped up: the experiences weren’t always stable, and while there were times when the gaming sessions over Starlink were stellar, users say there were other times when it would be nearly unplayable.

“When it’s good it’s [very] good. When it’s bad it’s horrid,” another user explained. At least in gaming, common issues reported with Starlink are high ping and excessive packet loss. The good news is that multiple customers claimed that when these issues did “spike,” they often resolved on their own within a minute or so. Of course, that may not be good enough for gamers who participate in competitive gameplay.
