I'm also a indiegogo backer and am getting a little discouraged.
At one point I even ordered a Lighthouse (ORDER #1499) just to get started and try to deploying something in rural Laos, where now live for my wife's NGO job. Syed recommended I cancel that order due to the L-band of Lantern being a better option.
I don't want a refund. In fact I logged on just to see if there are any updates. Clearly there's been a lot of hard work, time, effort and changes along the way. That's cool, I just wonder when I'll be getting the final product?
