The project showed Internet performance tests with download speeds ranging from 102 Mbps to 103 Mbps, upload speeds from 40.5 Mbps to 42 Mbps, and latency from 18 milliseconds to 19 milliseconds.
These numbers are much better than traditional satellite internet, which can be compared to low cable internet.
Other independent third-party tests show lower performance numbers, with users posting on (TestMy.Net) Average download speed of 37.04 Mbps, with a maximum speed of 91.04 Mbps.
And show Other tests Download speed of 103Mbps, upload speed of 41.99Mbps, and latency of 18ms.
The Linux-powered Starlink satellites are still in beta, and with about 775 satellites of the project in orbit, the service is well below its initial target of 12,000 satellites.
And theProgressed SpaceX has requested the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) to launch 30,000 satellites for the Starlink Project.
According to SpaceX founder and CEO, Elon Musk, SpaceX needs about 400 satellites to provide secondary coverage and 800 satellites to provide moderate coverage.
Demand for Starlink Express is also increasing, and SpaceX recently applied for a license from the Federal Communications Commission to offer five million user stations in addition to its original request for one million stations.
This followed the registration of 700 thousand residents in the United States to be informed of the availability of the service.
And it’s not just individuals, but rural governments, such as the Federation of Northern Ontario Municipalities (FONOM), are looking to Starlink for broadband.
The president of the Federation of Northern Ontario Municipalities (FONOM), Danny Whalen, in statement Journalist: Today we know that our citizens need a faster internet connection, and we believe Starlink is our best option.
SpaceX suffers from a shortage of user stations, and a close reading of the company’s request reveals that it is on track to produce thousands of user stations per month.
The satellites of the project are able to deliver broadband at acceptable speeds, but meeting the demand for hundreds of thousands or millions of user stations may take Months.
