Worth something that have that equipment on current account that can be activated as a replacement.
Are you sure? When I activated a Wally in place of my 211K, the csr told me to recycle it. I asked if it could be activated again on my account or someone else's, she said emphatically "no".

The OP said they are cancelling their sub to DISH. They won’t have a current account and someone who has a current account won’t be able to activate them on theirs unless they are replacing kind for kind.

Starlink hasn't released pricing for the home equipment.
Spacex has said that the antennas will cost a couple hundred and will be basically plug and play.. though they will need to be mounted outside to get signal so you would need some expertise.
Here is a quote from an interview in october with spacex president Gwynne Shotwell:
"When consumers sign up, they are going to receive a box from SpaceX with a user terminal and a cord. How that gets connected and where the terminals should be placed in someone’s home are still issues to be ironed out."

$200 doesn't sound too expensive to me and is more than worth it if the service is an improvement over what I have now with Viasat.

On first of November 2019 I was able to activate a New account on Dish4MyRv Pay as you go using a Vip211k and a VIP 222k...Was told that there's no planned date for dropping activation on Pay as you go account.. You cannot use Dish CSR to activate.

Sort of what happens when we have powerful people saying everything should be free.

Millions of subscribers to overpriced and under performing GEO satellite services would be more than willing to pay it. That is a fact.

Try Orby Tv for satellite, unless you like sports. It is pay as go.Works very well in bad weather doesn't go out like D* and E* if the dish is peaked correctly. No internet needed, just a thought.

My Dish and my brothers Directv didn’t go out, when leaked correctly. There really is no difference between the three, when peaked correctly.

My D* service still had rain fade,and had signal reading of 95-99 on most all transponders, some in the high 80's. E* service I don't remember to long ago. Orbys signal seem pretty strong is all I know.

Unless comparing them, at the same time, peaked optimally, it’s hard to say that the experience is of relevance. For instance, if I have Directv during a hurricane, and Dish during a clear day, and Orby during a snowstorm, all of those readings are going to be skewed.
