Starlink internet was brought about by Elon Musk founder of Tesla and Space x. Starlink is a Low Earth orbit low latency high speed internet system for domestic and business.
While most satellite internet services today come from single geostationary satellites that orbit the planet at about 35,000km, Starlink is a constellation of multiple satellites that orbit the planet much closer to Earth, at about 550km, and cover the entire globe.
Because Starlink satellites are in a low orbit, the round-trip data time between the user and the satellite – also known as latency – is much lower than with satellites in geostationary orbit. This enables Starlink to deliver services like online gaming that are usually not possible on other satellite broadband systems.
Cost of Starlink £400.00 equipment and £75.00 a month.
Starlink is a very clever piece of equipment consisting of a dish with cable running to a router with built in WIFI or ethernet. The dish is a motorised and does all alignment itself as it constantly monitors for the best satellite to lock on to.
The dish was was designed more for off-grid locations where internet is a problem and so the dish seems to be designed that way along with the tripod it comes with, you can however get a pole mount adapter from Starlink for a further £35.00 which again isn't the best. Being a professional TV Aerial installation company we are used to installing equipment high up and securely using proven equipment.
All Equipment we supply as part of the installation is galvanised to ensure security and long lasting.
