In an email sent to people registered for tests in Canada and the United States, the company of the whimsical billionaire announces the upcoming launch of the service and promises speeds between 50 to 150 Mbps and a latency of 20 to 40 ms. These capacities will have to improve in the coming months, as the offer goes out of its beta version. “Speed, latency, and operation will improve substantially”Writes Starlink, over the improvements of its network. However, it does not exclude periods of loss of all connectivity for its subscribers.
Note that the service is not cheap: the monthly subscription is $ 99, to which must be added the equipment costs (antenna and router) and installation, or 499 additional dollars. The Starlink mobile application is also available and is used in particular to monitor the antenna and the router, making it possible, for example, to know the speeds and the number of connected devices.
