Starlink satellite connection will soon probably also be on luxury ocean liners

Although there is an internet connection Starlink it may seem very expensive, in fact it is significantly cheaper for some applications than the options available today. This is true where you can’t pull a cable, or where there are no standard transmitters, because it wouldn’t pay off and it’s extremely expensive. This is where the satellite connection comes in, and Starlink is heading not only for planes, but also for ocean-going ships. Company Royal Caribbean Lines it has applied to the FCC for approval of Starlink for use on its routes.

According to the request, the company sees the service from SpaceX as a “real solution of a new generation”. The current Voom service offers speeds of around 3-5 Mbps for passengers for $ 18 to $ 20 per day. Its disadvantage is also that it only works up to 45 ° latitude, so there are areas where it is not available. The question is how much cheaper Starlink will be (for passengers on the ship). Starlink charges $ 500 per month for 500 Mbps. If we budgeted, for one day and 5 Mbps it would be $ 0.17. So there is room for discount.
