The number of users of the Starlink project, which is still in beta, has passed the 10,000 threshold.
SpaceX, the private space company led by Elon Musk, shared the number of users of the Starlink project. Accordingly, the number of Starlink users has exceeded 10,000. In this sense, the company’s satellite-based global internet project has crossed a serious threshold.
For Starlink, registrations for the beta program are underway in the UNITED States and European countries. The beta process began in October 2020. The Starlink Kit setup fee is $499 and the monthly subscription is $99. Speeds for this fee range from 50 MB/s to 150 Mb/s. The first user tests of the Starlink internet service were also positive.
Musk aims to provide fast and inexpensive internet service around the world with thousands of satellites to send into space in the Starlink project. Of course, the current prices are quite high, but we estimate that price adjustments will be made when the service is fully implemented. The number of internet satellites targeted to be sent is 12,000, but so far more than 1,000 satellites have been sent.
The completion of the project is expected in 2027.
