Elon Musk’s Starlink has the power to provide super high-speed internet to those locations where
traditional infrastructure fails and to your surprise, this will that much faster than no one could ever think.
If this program is successfully set up then the population living in remote locations is going to be made over the capability of this initiative by Elon Musk company. Starlink has expanded its operational units across the world and beta support is installed in almost all regions and they are 100% sure that they will deliver services to international regions and will surprise the world with the outcome of this facility.
What Elon Musk Claims?
Beta support is not that enticing due to low internet speed as wasn’t expected however the company will take care of it very soon. Responding to various questions, Elon Musk claimed to bring internet speed as fast as the speed of light and he said that new adventure has that capability and the world will smile very soon.
“Processing is not an issue. Lasers links alleviate ground station constraints, so data can go from say Sydney to London through space, which is ~40% the faster speed of light than fiber & shorter path. Also, no need for ground stations everywhere. The Arctic will have great bandwidth!”
Moreover, SpaceX CEO Elon Musk mentioned that they are planning to install laser satellites into space that will help in eradicating the burden on ground stations. Most of the network services including Starlink depend on ground units, low capability satellites, and dishes and the company believes they will get rid of these units and satellites very soon because they take a longer time in processing data and are the biggest headache at the moment.
With laser satellites support, data transmission will be faster almost 40% than optical fibers and this capability will give us super fast network speed which the world deserves at the moment.
Considering Musk’s remarks and checking the speed based on the current speed with optical fiber, Starlink will move data packets at 180,832 miles per second and it brings out that this blazing fast is approximately close to 97% of the speed of light.
SpaceX is also speeding up the launch of 1,200 Starlink satellites in the coming months however may see a little lull due to rocket oxidizer availability and a tricky satellite manufacturing process.
Wow, isn’t that amazing, it is. However it will also be very interesting to see how many worlds will pay for the services and yes, nothing comes free and it is going to be the biggest responsibility of the company and states to bring these services at an affordable price so that normal users can also avail the services.
