Get Fast Internet No Matter Where You Are With SpaceX’s Satellite Service

You’d be forgiven for thinking that Elon Musk is trying to take over the world, what with his booming EV business, experimental neural implants, and private space program (not to mention his Teslaquila line). However, the reality is that his various ventures are much more effective as a system than they are as disparate parts. Just take the newest development from SpaceX, for instance.

It’s called Starlink, and it’s a new internet service provider that’ll be here before you know it. In fact, it’s already begun beta testing. Designed to offer lightning-quick connectivity no matter where you are in the world, it’ll piggyback off of a fleet of more than 12,000 SpaceX satellites — an entire constellation if you will. With expected data speeds ranging from 50Mbps to 150Mbps and latency from 20ms to 40ms at launch, we’ll have to wait and see whether Musk can make good on his claimed 210 Mbps to 10 Gbps figures. In the meantime, you can pre-order Starlink for $99, with a $499 upfront cost to cover the complete kit that includes a Wi-Fi router, power supply, cables, and mounting tripod in addition to the necessary Starlink hardware. Head to the link below for more.

Purchase: $499+
