Starlink Satellite Internet: Musk promises double speeds by 2021

Chief Executive Officer SpaceX, Elon Musk, he told Twitter that the satellite service Internet of his company, Starlink, will offer speeds close to 300 Mbps sometime in 2021. This is about twice the speed than the one being advertised this time. If true, then we are talking about a very important step in the Internet space. Elon Musk Satellite Internet seeks to provide high speed internet in troubled areas around the world.

Its tweet Musk came in response to a customer, who published the results of a speed test at his home, with a new Starlink installation.

According to the CEO of SpaceX, the latency, which shows how long its signal needs to be Internet to travel in space and back, will drop to about 20ms this year. This promise is in line with its strategy company to launch its satellites into low orbit, which reduces the distance these signals must travel. Of course, this strategy has provoked some reactions, with astronomers worrying about obstacles to the visibility of the night sky, something that SpaceX is trying to correct with changes in the design of its satellites.

Elon Musk replied to another user who asked for a coverage map for satellite Internet, telling him that Starlink it will cover "most of the Earth by the end of the year, and the whole Earth until next year". He also said that the process has to do with "density" and noted that satellite Internet is better suited to areas with low to medium population density.

Starlink now has more than 10.000 customers and includes a growing network of more than 1.200 satellites around the Earth (in low orbit) that can provide signal to homes equipped with a receiver. The service accepts pre-orders for customers in areas of Canada United Kingdom and the northwest USA, as well as in other selected areas.

The scope of this coverage is expected to increase as SpaceX continues to launch new satellites.
