[Updated] Starlink internet down, not working, or disconnected? You're not alone

New updates are being added at the bottom of this story…….

Original story (published on August 18, 2022) follows:

Starlink users in Los Angeles, Seattle, San Fransisco, New York, and a few other cities are reporting that the internet is down and not working or keeps getting disconnected.

The issue appears to have been going on for at least half an hour and service outage detectors such as Downdetector and Fing indicate that it is indeed a widespread outage.

We’ve shared some user reports for reference below:

This suggests that the company should be aware of the problem, however, there’s no public statement acknowledging the outage.

The most users can do currently is to wait for Starlink to address the problem as soon as possible.
