SpaceX said price for satellite internet connection

American people try Starlink

Americans who had previously registered on the Starlink website and wished to take part in the trial of the satellite internet service began to receive letters from SpaceX.

The proposal states that when ordering a set of equipment for $499, the user receives a terminal to connect to satellites, a mounting tripod and a Wi-Fi router.

As it follows from SpaceX letter, users are set up "not to expect something fantastic from connection". Communication will be generally reliable and relatively fast, but there may also be short periods of absence.

Also, SpaceX said that the transmission rate will be between 50 Mbps and approximately 150 Mbps and the latency will be around 20-40 ms in initial use as long as Starlink improves performance.

At the same time, Starlink stresses that users will receive a fully competitive Internet experience that will not depend on terrestrial operators, line breaks, fiber damage, weather conditions and other problems inherent in terrestrial operators.

As a plus, the company also refers to the one-time connectivity.

SpaceX says in a letter: "If users buy the equipment again, they will be able to travel around the country and have their own satellite Internet connection, and users will not have to wait to connect to a local operator".

It is currently unknown how many letters SpaceX has sent to residents of the United States offering commercial connectivity. Earlier the company reported that the number of applications for connection on the Starlink website exceeded 700 thousand.

As you know, earlier SpaceX requested permission from the Communications Commission to issue 1 million Starlink subscriber devices.

Last year, Elon Musk tested Starlink and tweeted it. He wrote: "I'm sending this tweet via Starlink satellite".

Also, SpaceX has launched another batch of satellites. And before that, it had attracted a record 1.9 billion dollars in investments.
