Elon Musk promises to double Starlink speed by the end of 2021 – NeeWS

As we found out at the beginning of February, the service will also be available in our country in the second half of the year, although you should be prepared for a large expense here. The pre-sale of Starlink in Poland has already started, so we know that the necessary equipment is a one-time expense of PLN 2269, to which you must add PLN 276 for shipping and PLN 449 per month for the service itself. The number of sets available for our country is limited, but there are probably not too many people, because we can still order our own without any problems. And it is hardly surprising, because in our country a connection with similar parameters will cost up to several dozen zlotys.

Of course, with the development of the service around the world, prices will certainly fall significantly and it will become more competitive, but currently for PLN 449 we can count on a download with an average speed of 100 Mb / s (max 180 Mb / s) and upload speed of 25 Mb / s (max 35 Mb / s), and all this with ping at 30 ms. There is no madness, right? Fortunately, today we find out that it will be much better this year. Elon Musk informed that before the end of 2021 he wants to provide Internet with a download speed of 300 Mb / s using Starlink, and at the same time promised to improve delays.

And all in response to a Twitter post from one of the users who just received his test kit. And although 300 Mb / s is still not a stunning speed, because for fiber-optic internet with these parameters we will pay about PLN 70 with a popular provider, and in the city we can use 5G mobile communication, but Starlink has a slightly different purpose. Thanks to its cosmic basis, it is able to reach places where there is currently no Internet or users use very slow links, i.e. sparsely or medium-populated places in small towns and villages. If it is actually possible to regularly improve speed and reduce delays, over time Starlink may be a viable alternative to many other solutions currently in use.
