SpaceX made deposits available for the Starlink system kit back in February this year with the promise that the service would go live later this year. It looks like the promise will be fulfilled.
Starlink starts in Poland
The first volunteers in Poland receive information that a limited number of Starlink terminals are already available, which will soon be delivered to users. Willing people could sign up for the service at the beginning of 2021, it was enough to pay a deposit in the amount of PLN 449. Now it is enough to pay a little over PLN 2,000 for the equipment and delivery and soon you will be able to enjoy fast Internet in almost every corner of the country. It is not known exactly how many packages SpaceX has prepared for the Polish market, but it is also difficult to expect that there will be many willing. After all, PLN 449 a month is still quite a lot, and in Poland we have quite good access to optical fibers and wireless Internet within the 4G / 5G network.
Of course, you also have to take the correction that Starlink is still in beta testing and the service is not 100% reliable, and it needs a lot of free space for the antenna to have a clear view of the sky. As a result, there will probably not be too many interested parties, but in a few weeks we can expect the first tests of this solution in our country. SpaceX is currently promising transfers of 50-150 Mbps, but ultimately speeds can reach up to 1 Gbps, and delays may drop even to 20 ms. However, it is still the song of the future. It is also possible that the terminals will be cheaper in a few years, because SpaceX is working intensively to reduce costs.
Tomorrow in the morning more Starlins will fly
It is also worth mentioning that tomorrow in the morning (5:55 Polish time), another package of Starlink satellites will be launched from the west coast of the United States. After a three-month break, SpaceX will send into orbit new models of its satellites (V1.5) equipped with lasers allowing for mutual communication, as in the case of optical fiber. These types of satellites will be used mainly around the poles and above the assessments, where it is much more difficult to find base stations than over land.
