One of the big trends at the moment is Internet access via satellite. The main driver is Elon Musk’s Starlink, which offers high-speed access, using its own satellite constellation.
This company has now introduced a novelty to its potential users. It revealed its new access kit, which includes a new antenna, which has a shape that goes against everything that could be considered normal.
We have always been used to seeing the dishes of satellite dishes with a circular shape. This is the most natural and apparently the most efficient way to get the best reception and signal strength.
Starlink has now come to counter this idea, when presenting your new access kit, where a new antenna is present. This has a completely different shape from what we are used to seeing and what is considered normal and more efficient.
This new antenna has a square shape and measures 12 inches (30.48 cm) x 19 inches (48.26 cm), weighing just over 4 kg. This then has a curved protrusion towards the back, giving it a concave shape, being covered. This is smaller than the 23-inch diameter circular predecessor.
The rest of the kit’s features are similar, although there is now a Wi-Fi router resistant to extreme temperatures (up to 50 °C) and IP54 water resistance. The antenna itself also has new ways of being installed nailed to the wall, instead of resting on a base.
Starlink had a challenge with its original antennas, which had a production cost of $1,300. By selling the kit for $499, Starlink was losing money. The cost reduction objective resulted in this new antenna, whose manufacturing cost was not detailed.
After breaking down barriers and betting on a completely different service, Starlink once again marked a position. This time with its new Internet access kit antenna, which goes against everything that is considered normal.
