SpaceX’s satellite Internet network, Starlink, may deliver broadband to people’s homes and their cars, according to CEO Elon Musk.
On Tuesday, Twitter user Anton Kanerva Musk asked if Starlink’s satellite dishes would work on “fast moving objects like trains”. He added, “It would be incredible if trains traveling through nowhere could finally have stable, high-speed internet connections!”
In response, Musk tweeted back, “Yes. With a phased array antenna, everything is slow. ”
The comment refers to how Starlink operates over hundreds of satellites orbiting approximately 350 miles above the earth. At this range, even a fast moving train appears relatively slow to a Starlink satellite as it broadcasts Internet data to Earth.
Musk’s comment increases the prospect that users can stay connected to SpaceX’s high-speed Internet network no matter where they are – even if they’re in a car – as long as their Starlink satellite dish stays with them. The court also needs electricity and a clear view of the sky. However, the technology could be a game changer for people who live in remote areas and often lack access to stable, high-speed internet.
Starlink can currently provide download speeds of 100 Mbit / s with a latency of less than 30 milliseconds. However, there are still many unknowns about satellite internet service, e.g. B. how much it costs and how it performs in rainy and snowy weather conditions.
Musk has announced that Starlink will soon begin public beta studies for residents in the northern United States and possibly southern Canada. Interested users can subscribe to the Starlink website for email updates on the availability of services.
