Some time ago, the American company SpaceX successfully launched the “Starlink” project, the key goal of which is to bring the World Wide Web even to the most remote places. It is a global satellite network that is supposed to provide fast access to the World Wide Web from every corner of the world. Currently, satellite internet is only available to users in the United States and the United Kingdom, and will soon be available in the European Union. It will initially be available in Italy, Germany, Greece and France, but will later be available in other European countries.
SpaceX Starlink satellite internet works great in practice. Data transfer speeds range from about 35 megabytes per second to just over 100 megabytes per second, and download speeds range from 5 megabytes per second to 20 megabytes per second. The delay time is currently between 25 milliseconds and 35 milliseconds, and in the future it is expected to be reduced by 20 milliseconds. By 2024, SpaceX plans to use 4.4.25 satellites to provide the Internet, which means that it will certainly become even faster and more reliable.
Currently, however, unfortunately, the SpaceX Starlink satellite internet is anything but cheap. As much as 499 euros must be deducted for the purchase of hardware, and shipping costs amount to an additional 60 euros. To this must be added another 99 euros monthly subscription. These prices are expected to fall significantly in the future, and a precondition for this is the start of mass use of the service by end users.
