Satellite Internet for WiFi calling

I’m inquiring whether any Republic users are making wifi calls when they are connected only through satellite internet (Viasat or Hughesnet and eventually Starlink). I have used Viasat successfully for WiFi calling where latency is commonly around 600 ms and speeds are between 10 and 20 mbps. Starlink’s beta tests are coming in at 20-40 ms and 250 mbps.

the biggest issue with wifi calling over satellite is the latency (1Mbs is more than fast enough for VOIP the Republic uses for WiFi calling)
Starlink should fix the latency, (difference between Low Earth Orbit and Geosync orbit) the issue I see may happen with Starlink are when it changes from 1 satellite to another could cause hickups
