Starlink provides satellite-based internet broadband services across the world. Starlink features many advantages over the leading competitors such as increased internet speeds even in remote locations. 

How does Starlink work?

Starlink has revolutionised satellite internet. Starlink works via three main components. Constellation of satellites, ground station network and user terminals. At the beginning of the year, the Starlink constellation already featured over 3,000 satellites. The creator Elon Musk plans to increase this massively with the aim to provide secure, rapid internet to every single habitted space on earth!

The benefits of Starlink installation

The Starlink satellites are located in very low orbit compared to their competitors. This means that Starlink can operate at a faster rate. To put this in perspective, for most satellite internet services their satellites orbit at around 35,000 km. The round-trip time from the user to satellite is huge because of this. With Starlink satellites orbiting much closer to Earth, at around 550 km, the round-trip time is decreased dramatically. This means customer can stream, game, work, and call all at the same time. Something some of us only wish of! Starlink is also relatively inexpensive and easy to use. Currently in the UK, Starlink charges customers via three tariff plans; Internet, business, and mobile homes / vehicles. It’s worth doing some research into these individual plans and investigating how much you could possibly save by switching.
