SpaceX reports that the tests conducted with its expanding Starlink constellation reveal the fastest internet connectivity after using its employees as test subjects. Kate Tice, the chief engineer of authentication, stated that downloads’ speed exceeds 100 Mbps with a high reconnection speed.
The reconnection speed is fast enough to accommodate massive gamers and high definition video streaming for devices connected to this spectrum. SpaceX intends to send thousands of satellites into space to form the constellation that will eventually circle the whole Earth to reach all the extremes where people and machines venture. This move will make the internet affordable by all the inhabitants of the Earth.
The chief executive of SpaceX, Elon Musk, stated that his objective is to ensure that people living in remote and the marginalized areas have access to the internet. Currently, SpaceX has 713 Starlink satellites in the low-Earth orbit to mark the acceleration towards achieving his objective. A new addition that will hasten the reconnection speed of the satellites is the space lasers. Lasers are like chains that enhance the transfer of data between the satellites. This new technology will minimize the trouble of linking with the ground stations to communicate with other satellites in the same spectrum.
Kate Tice observed that they could transmit substantial gigabytes of data among the Starlink satellites using the lasers to connect them. She reiterated that these connectors’ full-scale applications would make the Starlink satellite internet the fastest data transfer system worldwide. Starlink was already in action with the employees of SpaceX located in strategic places on Earth, accessing the internet to evaluate its performance before it goes public.
SpaceX is now communicating with the people who subscribed to participate in the test of this program. SpaceX has recorded the highest number of satellite launches in thirty days after launching 180 satellites. Amazingly, the firm is still preparing to increase the number of satellites it can deploy to the LEO to exceed 200 and achieve its target as soon as possible.
Finally, Musk admitted that he wants to have a minimum of 1000 Starlink satellites in space before unveiling the project to the public and its intended customers. A continued launch of satellites will follow this move until they blanket the Earth with Starlink satellites. Elon Musk hopes to reach a level where there is fast internet access worldwide before terming the Earth as an interconnected community.
