The results of SpaceX’s Starlink public beta test, which provides global internet coverage from space are out. Users who ran the test confirmed incredibly fast results. To run the beta test, users had to purchase Starlink ground equipment for $ 499 and along with an additional $ 99 monthly fee for services.
One of the users, who took the test, posted on Reddit that they got 1440p and 4K streaming with zero buffering on YouTube. He wrote: “Latency averages around 34ms, I see some increase in jitter when obstacles are in the path. It is on the roof with the ridge mount. I have a couple of trees on the road, but I am getting constant high speeds . I noticed a couple of drops, probably due to satellite transitions, but almost 100% constant from initial setup. I actually uploaded this post using Starlink. “
“Because some different people are looking for the details on this, the outages last ten to fifteen seconds and seem to happen every few minutes. I haven’t noticed enough repetitions to determine this, but I suspect it may be when the satellite is behind the few trees within the obstruction area rather than satellite passes. The app claims that Starlink hasn’t been hindered recently, so I’m not sure, “he added.
Starlink had already sent out invitations to people who had signed up for the beta program. A user on Reddit shared the key points Starlink mentioned about his internet plan. As per the post on Reddit, the program called Better Than Nothing Btea offered estimated speeds between 50 Mbps and 150 Mbps, latency estimated from 20 ms to 40 ms. The antenna and phased array router would cost a user $ 499 while the monthly subscription would cost around $ 99.
“With performance far exceeding that of traditional satellite internet and a limitless global network of ground infrastructure, Starlink will deliver high-speed broadband internet to locations where access has been unreliable, expensive or completely unavailable. . Starlink is targeting the service in the Northern United States and Canada in 2020, rapidly expanding to near-global coverage of the populated world by 2021, ”the Starlink website reads.
