Starlink to Cap Users at 1TB of High-speed Data Unless They Pay Extra

Starlink is imposing new data-usage limits on its Internet customers, slowing speeds after a customer uses 1TB in any given month unless they pay extra. While the new data limits are in some ways more forgiving than Comcast’s data cap, the change may be concerning to Starlink users who have already seen slower speeds in recent months.

“To ensure our customer base is not negatively impacted by a small number of users consuming unusually high amounts of data, the Starlink team is implementing a Fair Use policy for Residential customers in the US and Canada and all Business/Maritime customers beginning December 2022,” a FAQ says.

Under Starlink’s fair use policy, residential customers will get 1TB of “priority access data” each month. After using 1TB, customers can keep accessing the Internet at slower speeds or pay $0.25 per gigabyte for “additional priority access.” Starlink sent emails to customers notifying them of the new policy late last week. The residential service’s base price is $110 per month.

The Callisto Protocol Is an Intimate, Unsettling Take on Survival Horror

Published

Don’t be fooled by the over-the-shoulder perspective. This isn’t just another Dead Space.

When looking at The Callisto Protocol, it’s hard not to think of the Dead Space series. Coming from the former Visceral Games developers who have now formed Striking Distance Studios, the upcoming survival-horror game shares plenty of similarities with EA’s beloved space-horror shooter series (which also seems to be set for a revival in 2023).

The creative director of The Callisto Protocol (and co-creator of Dead Space), Glen Schofield, says he wants his new game to be the next step for the genre rather than just retreading familiar ground. “I know people are calling [The Callisto Protocol] a spiritual successor to Dead Space, but I honestly don’t mean it to be that way,” he told Ars at a recent preview event. “I want this to be a standalone game, and once you get into the story and experience, there are some key differences at work, which I’m really proud of.”

And after finally playing an early portion of the game and speaking with Schofield about its development, it became clear that there’s more going on with The Callisto Protocol and its brand of sci-fi horror than appears at first glance.
