110 megabits per secondElon Musk has claimed Starlink will provide internet speeds of 1 Gbps, and while recent reports have shown impressive download average rates of 110 megabits per second (Mbps) with uploads of 20 Mbps, this is still a long way from 1 Gbps.

Can the Internet be free?

As long as there is a cost to running hardware, the Internet will not be free of charge. … Other initiatives for free Internet are usually state-sponsored (like the free Wi-Fi provided by Oradea’s municipal government), although technically, I wouldn’t call that “free” since it is supported by taxpayers.

Dozens of families in rural Texas will get SpaceX’s Starlink satellite internet for free in 2021. Elon Musk’s SpaceX has agreed to provide internet in a Texas school district via its Starlink network of satellites. It will provide internet to 45 families in early 2021, and an additional 90 families later on.

Starlink internet costs $99 per month and SpaceX requires a $99 deposit to be paid when placing the initial service order.

Users of SpaceX’s “Better Than Nothing Beta” test have posted pictures and videos on the Reddit Starlink community proving that the Starlink terminal still works in extreme weather conditions – and in some cases, it’s even faster.

SpaceX further mentioned that in its baseline plan, “Starlink Services would provide telephone services connecting consumers to its MSP’s platform using its network capacity, which is available to consumers through their customer premises equipment.” Interestingly enough, the Elon Musk-led company added that Starlink …

5G has an advantage over Starlink in terms of reliable service, because it’s built on top of existing cellular infrastructure. … For mmWave 5G you need more towers because the higher-frequency speed travels at much shorter distances. For slower, mid- to low-band 5G, the existing towers will do.

No. But starlink will replace how towers get access to the internet. Imo what StarLink is going to do in the long term, is put up their own ground based Towers. And because these towers don’t need access to ISP backbones on the ground, they can go anywhere, places where towers can’t currently go.

High-speed, low latency broadband internet. Starlink is now delivering initial beta service both domestically and internationally, and will continue expansion to near global coverage of the populated world in 2021.

One of the features Starlink promotes is more affordable satellite internet, however the current price of $100 a month isn’t cheaper. It costs more than all other satellite services available in my area.

Currently Starlink service has no data caps, but it is locked to work only “near” the address that you sign up at.

In our initial Starkink review, we found it simple to set up and faster not only than DSL lines but also quicker than what many basic cable packages are actually able to deliver. Certainly as the only option for sparsely populated areas, Starlink could prove to be a godsend, albeit an expensive one.

Starlink will need to have up to 42,000 satellites in its constellation—which means it’s still a long road ahead for Starlink. … The one-time equipment fee of $499 includes the Starlink dish receiver (what Elon Musk calls “a UFO on a stick”), a mounting tripod, and a Starlink modem.

It’s a big deal. Now, most of the ships either don’t have internet or have crappy satellite internet. In the 2021-2022 period, once the Starlink becomes fully operational worldwide, boating in the sea would become more enjoyable. … We can’t even imagine how the fast internet will change the boating industry.

Can I get satellite Internet for free?

While it is possible to get free satellite Internet access for a short time, there is no way to keep it. Many Internet providers, including satellite Internet providers, will offer a combination of discounted or even free service, equipment and installation for a limited period only.

This will be deducted from the monthly subscription fee once the connection is activated. This is a refundable deposit that will be refunded, in case, Starlink isn’t able to provide services in your area. Monthly subscription fee – $99. This includes unlimited data access.
