Let’s go back to talking about Starlink, one of the most interesting projects in which Elon Musk is involved with his SpaceX. There next generation network based on SpaceX satellites has just made its official entry into Italy.
Users who were interested in Starlink’s availability are receiving an email informing them of the official availability of the service in Italy. The screenshots you find in the gallery they actually show that Starlink will be coming soon in Italy for installation, but that is already possible place your pre-order.
Starlink at the moment also talks about the availability in Italy will be limited, therefore we expect the availability of the service only in determinate geographical areas. The service should guarantee a download speed between 50 Mbps and 150 Mbps, consistent with what was seen during the preliminary tests.
We remind you that Starlink is based on the satellites sent into orbit by SpaceX, and that at the moment it is coordinate with each other thanks to ground stations also present in Europe.
Musk made it clear that this connection with the ground stations it will no longer be needed when Starlink is fully operational, estimating a maximum time of 6 months. Once the satellites are able to communicate with each other without the ground station bridge, the service will be able to guarantee even faster connection speeds.
How much does Starlink cost? It is a non-economic service: we speak of 499 euro to be paid one-time for the hardware kit, 60 euro shipping e 99 euros per month for the service. By pre-ordering the kit now in Italy you will only have to pay an advance of 99 euros. Found more details on the official website. It is obvious that this is probably a service more attractive for corporate infrastructures that for individuals, let us know what you think and if you have thought about it.
