The upcoming SpaceX Starlink has been increasingly popular with people all over the world making conversation about the upcoming satellite internet service.
What is SpaceX Starlink? Well, in technical terms, it is a satellite internet system but to the more average web user, it is considered a potential saving from the disappointing internet speeds that people are used to. The thing is, with internet connections already set and 5G coming up, what makes satellite internet even more exciting?
SpaceX Starlink internet speed
Well, for those living in the cities, enjoying really good internet speeds at maybe 1GB or more is quite normal. However, there are places that have to make due with 20 Mbps or even maybe as low as 0.8Mbs every day.
What’s worse is with the increasing demand for faster internet speeds at home due to the whole remote working and even students taking their classes online makes it harder for those with slow internet speeds to work with. Unfortunately, there are still millions of people spanning all across the United States as well as across the globe that are still stuck in the very same situation.

Although 5G would be very beneficial for users, it might not be as good as the SpaceX Starlink satellite services that could service them from all parts of the world. What’s also quite exciting is the speeds that the upcoming Starlink is expected to offer its users.
The satellite internet system coming from SpaceX is currently capable of delivering 150 Mbps around theoretically about any place all around the world. All that a customer really needs is actually a clear view of the sky. Some time last fall, the systems started serving the first batch of users who are located in certain remote as well as rural regions around America. The response, so far has been filled with positivity.
Satellite Internet available globally in the future
While Starlink is still quite far from completion as more satellites have to be sent into space, users would still have to wait a while for Starlink to be available globally. As of the moment, the current users of the satellite internet surface are limited within the beta testing of the particular service.
In order to properly enjoy the benefits of Starlink, users should have computers with good enough RAM and PC capacities in order to enjoy the full extent of the satellite internet services. While Intel has been reigning for the past years, the throne has slowly been taken up by both Apple with the new M1 chips and AMD with their increasingly competitive and more affordable CPUs.
