Elon Musk believes that SpaceX’s Starling satellite galaxy could provide Internet access to areas not underestimated by most carriers. However, this service should cater to a wide range of users and locations located within a narrow group that these satellites can actually reach. Starling promises faster speeds than your average DSL or Fiber Internet, and it is true that Okla, the creator of Speedest, invented it, but only for certain areas. In others, it was worse than consumers already had.
Always take definitions with a grain of salt, of course, Speedest is called more than once for some of its methods or results. If it is used in a series of tests, it will serve as a metric and a starting point for discussion. There will be a lot of discussion around these results from Starling.
While boasting about Musk’s goals and Starling speeds, it is enough to be disappointed by Speedest’s results in areas under service in the US and Canada. The average download speed was 40 Mbps to 93 Mbps, which is far from the above 100 Mbps figures initially announced. What makes the situation worse is that the average may actually be worse than standard broadband in some areas.
He said that, These results There is really little to be expected if we explore the locations given the best and worst speeds. The worst were located in dense cities with tall buildings that would naturally prevent the satellite signals from reaching full power. Satellite internet, after all, works best in wide, open spaces.
This raises the question of whether Starling will be a viable business in the long run. People who benefit the most from such an internet connection should not actually be in places where they can purchase such a service. Again, as the galaxy is not yet complete, our sky could once again be upgraded to satellite debris.
