SpaceX-owned company Starlink has announced that it is testing a new “Global Roaming” internet service for $200 per month. The service is designed to provide people with a reliable connection around the world.
Starlink is the first company to offer a global roaming package for consumers. The company promises that its service will provide users with access to the internet anywhere on the planet, no matter if they’re in remote locations or on a plane.
The service is available in three packages: Basic, Standard, and Premium. The Basic package offers 50 Mbps download speed, 20 Mbps upload speed, and 20 ms latency. The Standard package offers 100 Mbps download speed, 40 Mbps upload speed, and 20 ms latency. The Premium package offers 200 Mbps download speed, 80 Mbps upload speed, and 10 ms latency.
In order to use the service, users will need to purchase a Starlink satellite dish, which costs $99.99, and a receiver, which costs $49.99. Starlink’s system will automatically switch its connection to the closest satellite, providing a stable connection no matter where you are.
The service is currently being tested in the United States, Canada, and Germany. It is expected to be available in other countries soon. Starlink claims that their service is faster than traditional internet options, providing a more stable connection that is not affected by the weather.
The “Global Roaming” package is the latest offering from Starlink, which is the company’s first foray into the consumer market. Starlink has become a leading provider of satellite-based internet services, and it is expected to continue to grow as the demand for reliable internet access around the world increases.
Starlink’s “Global Roaming” package could revolutionize the way people access the internet. The convenience and reliability of the service could make it a popular choice for people who travel often or live in remote locations with limited internet options. Only time will tell if the service will live up to the hype, but it is certainly an ambitious undertaking.
