SpaceX Starts Beta Testing For Starlink Satellite Internet best then 5?

starlink testing beta

       SpaceX speed test best than 5G?                      

SpaceX is now inviting users to join its satellite piled StarLink internet ahead of a public beta test StarLink is the current name for this plan trademarked by SpaceX in late August 2017 the entire project could be up and running by 2024 the current timeline holds SpaceX filed to trade rocks on the same day in 2017 revealing more information about their internet plans the Elon Musk owned aerospace companies now letting people or interested in the service to sign up to in the company's words to get updates and StarLink news and service availability in their area by filling out an email form of a zip code prospective customers will get notifications on when or if they are able to join the star link service once it's opened up a statement from Starlin read if you provided us with your zip code you will be notified via email if beta testing opportunities become available in your area in the meantime we'll continue to share with you updates about general service availability and upcoming startling launches the beta is expected to open up in the summer of 2020 all in the early fall and at that point star link will have about 800 satellites in orbit welcome to news breakdown .speed test

                                   Opener Continued                                              

it said that users who successfully sign up before the beta will receive a user terminal that musk has described as looking like a little UFO on a stick that can position itself optimally to receive the signals from space musk has said that the price of the Internet which promises gigabytes speeds with 15 to 25 milliseconds latency will be about $80 a month making it competitive with other traditional high speed providers so in relation to that particular statement I would beg to differ $80 seems a lot for high-speed Internet currently in the UK can get high-speed decent internet for about 35 pounds so that $80 price point seems quite excessive in high and those are the comments that I have been seeing on various online forums in relation to the price point that has been announced a four star link currently SpaceX has more than 500 styling satellites in orbit which is well above the 400 satellite threshold needed for SpaceX to start introducing minimal internet coverage musk has said that at least 800 are necessary for moderate coverage the firm aims to have more than 1,000 satellites in orbit by the end of the year and has also been approved by the FCC to launch over 12,000 satellites in total collectively they will form a constellation designed to provide a low-cost broadband Internet service from low-earth orbit however of course we have discussed the price point and to me is mentioned that's obviously not affordable broadband in today's video we'll we'll be taking a look at the three key things that you need to know about the star linker project

                      Is Starlink Fast Enough To Compete                             

 and the first key element it will be will it be fast enough to compete with the traditional broadband providers star link isn't just providing satellite internet to the world it will be providing top quality high speed satellite internet to the world at speeds that live a wide broadband Starlin claims this is spelled out in an application to the FCC that SpaceX submitted back in March 2017 to get the mission to deploy the satellite system according to the application the satellite internet will enable the provision of high-speed high-bandwidth low-latency broadband services are truly competitive with terrestrial alternatives so it appears that the plan is to launch an initial 800 satellites off the 12,000 satellites to provide a more basic coverage that will then be enhanced and strengthened interestingly SpaceX is plan also involves avoiding creating additional space junk in orbit which is a current problem and this is a problem that I do believe will get worse as time goes by this will certainly be affected by the reduced cost of launching goods or services such as satellites it's a train to space

           Starlink Has Been In The Works For 6 Years                         


 The next key point is that this project has been in the works for about six years this project has been planned by Elon Musk for more than six years now so though it may feel like it's happening out of nowhere it's actually been planned for

quite a while in November 2014 he

confirmed that SpaceX was working on creating advanced satellites to deploy low-cost internet access around the world so we do know that Elon Musk is a man of his word if he does set his sights on a particular project it generally tends to make it happen and this is obviously coupled with the announcement of the opening to the beta axis to test StarLink..internet speed test.5g

                             Starlink Needs More Government Approval                              

one of the key elements that we do also need to know and discuss in this particular episode is in regards to the government approval so the Federal Communications Commission in the u.s. also known as the FCC has serious doubts that the low Earth orbit satellite providers including Spacek scan deliver Internet service while keeping latency and that 100 milliseconds in a lengthy report on the rule digit opportunity fund the FCC confirmed that while Elya which is low-earth orbit companies are allowed to apply for rural broadband funding as low latency providers they should expect to fight the FCC has also since added that show term applicants seeking to bid for low latency provider using low-earth orbit satellite networks will face a substantial challenge demonstrating to the Commission staff that their networks can deliver real-world performance to consumers have Bulow's the commission's 100 millisecond low latency threshold Starling is confident that his satellites at round-trip latency ZUP to path consumers and the FCC SpaceX also explained that its system easily clears that Commission's 100 millisecond threshold for low latency services even including its processing time during unrealistic worst-case situations SpaceX has a lot to proof and a little time to do it while the firm has launched it nearly 500 satellites to date it isn't yet offering a commercial service SpaceX earned the approval to develop a satellite constellation that offers a low-cost high performance solution to providing fast internet access so of course we also do know based on previous reports coming out of the USA there Internet access is a huge huge problem in rural areas to a point where other communities within the US have decided to actually dig their own trenches to line up their own broadband cable in order for them to actually receive high-speed Internet in 2020





so this is something that needs to be addressed and it looks like Elon Musk and Co and other companies who are forming these low-earth orbit satellite internet services will certainly have a problem to solve thank you so much for reading
