SpaceX has shipped over 100,000 Starlink satellites to beta testers

Elon Musk’s SpaceX has been sending out Starlink satellite dishes to customers for around eight months now, following the release of the service in late 2020. Starlink uses a large array of low orbit satellites with connections back to the ground, which then in turn have high speed fibre connections. Having the satellites at a lower level reduces the high latency and slow speeds that traditional satellite broadband services have. […]

SpaceX’s Starlink will be able to achieve 300Mbps this year

SpaceX launched its low orbit satellite service, Starlink to the US and UK in beta form recently and the latency and speeds are very good for a satellite based serviced, with speeds around 150Mbps and latency of 20-30ms. However CEO Elon Musk has said that the speeds will almost double to 300Mbps sometime in 2021. Latency will be dropped too from the 20-40ms in the beta phase to under 20ms […]
