Starlink at Villa Lava

Internet connectivity in Croatia has been a pain point for us a long time for us at Villa Lava. Over the years, we’ve tried all available options, including ADSL and 4G/5G with a big external antenna. Despite all our attempts, the connectivity speed has never been fast enough for a group of people to live and work together at the house (if you’re trying to do multiple video calls etc).

As of 2022, we’re excited to announce that we’ve finally been able to get Starlink installed. After being on the wait list for almost two years, Villa Lava is now one of the first installation of Starlink in Croatia.

For our guests, this means no more buffering. Multiple users can sit on video calls, or stream Netflix in full HD without issues (simultaneously).
