Question: What Will Starlink Offer?

According to SpaceX, Starlink will offer speeds of up to a gigabit per second at latencies from 25 milliseconds to 35 milliseconds.

That’s much faster than old-school satellites..

To date, SpaceX has said that Starlink service will initially be made available to customers in Canada and in the northern United States in 2020, with additional service expansion to follow to other parts of the world throughout 2021.

Starlink is a satellite constellation being constructed by SpaceX to provide satellite Internet access. … As of 2020, SpaceX is launching 60 satellites at a time, aiming to deploy 1,584 of the 260 kilograms (570 lb) spacecraft to provide near-global service by late 2021 or 2022.

It doesn’t work with phones. … The Starlink customer antenna is about the size of a pizza box, so you won’t be able to carry it everywhere you would bring a cell phone.

SpaceX has yet to announce any concrete Starlink internet plans or prices, but it’s likely they’ll offer at least one unlimited plan, if not go entirely unlimited like Viasat. … around $80/month, placing them squarely in the affordable end of satellite internet pricing.

In the last few decades the idea of replacing cell towers with satellite technology did not make business sense. … Fast forward to 2020 and there are plans in place to replace the need for cell towers with low orbit satellites. In May of last year SpaceX launched 60 of a planned 12,000 Starlink satellites into low orbit.

The CEO floated the idea of a figure somewhere around $100 and $300. That means, all in all, Starlink could launch for somewhere around the $80 per month mark, plus an extra $100 to $300 for installation costs.

Elon Musk recently revealed details about how people will access StarLink. It will be incredibly simple, and it will enable access to the relatively free global internet from anywhere on the planet. Starlink Terminal has motors to self-adjust optimal angle to view sky.

Starlink will make 5G affordable, as if there was no Starlink then the 5g providers couldn’t use the present satellite networks due to higher ping. So they would’ve to improve current net infrastructure & optimize it. Starlink might reinforce 5G and Vice Versa. They help each other.
