SpaceX launches its Starlink premium internet plan and it’s not cheap. Earlier last week, Elon Musk in a tweet said, promoted Starlink Premium as a service with a scanning array that is twice as big as the standard offering.
Starlink Premium Internet Plan
If you are planning to go for the Starlink premium internet plan these are some of the details we would like to share and it’s not cheap. The premium service will cost you $500 a month, which is higher than the $99 a month for the base Starlink service.
Users will be required to pay $500 as a deposit and $2,500 for a kit that includes the satellite antenna, Wi-Fi router, base, and cables. Users will enter no contract, though they will be provided Starlink on a first-come, first-served basis.
The Starlink premium internet plan offers higher download speeds of 150-500Mbps and latency of 20-40ms, that’s what the official website says. You can place your orders right now, while the deliveries will begin later in 2022.
According to Musk, SpaceX has started the global rollout of Starlink satellites in 2020 and has shipped 100,000 units to customers worldwide. The Starlink network is branded as a high-speed broadband internet service that uses a network of interlinked satellites that sit in low Earth orbit, sent aloft by SpaceX rockets.
The company aims to make internet connectivity easily available to people living in rural areas and parts of the world where accessibility by ground is difficult. Starlink’s ambitious plan consists of providing service to governments, small businesses, and users engaged in everyday activities like gaming or communicating with a health care provider.
The Starlink Premium service promises to offer 24/7 VIP-level customer service, better performance during outages, and unlimited data. According to SpaceX, the service is a prime choice for businesses and “high demand users.”
