SpaceX supports 100 Mbps transfer speeds and space lasers with the new Starlink update

 

SpaceX said previous tests in its fast-developing group of internet provision satellites are providing promising results. The tests are done internally on the beta type of services of the internet from the Starlink project from the company that shows the super low latency with a more incredible downloading speed, which is higher than 100 megabits in second. The information above came from Kate Tice, a senior certification engineer at SpaceX, during the live broadcast at Starlink’s launch last Thursday. 

Tice added that Starlink’s latency is low to watch online games, video, and fast downloading speed with the ability to stream several HD movies simultaneously and have the capacity to bandwidth to standby. Starlink’s initiative has hopes to more than ten thousand satellites with broadband in the orbit of the Earth, covering the Earth in fast internet speed that is affordable. The CEO of SpaceX, Musk Elon, stated that he has faith that Starlink will reach the remote and rural areas. Currently, more than 700 broadband satellites for the company are in the orbit of the Earth. 

Tice continued to state that SpaceX has finished the test for two orbiting satellites, containing inter-satellite links that were informal as space laser. The space laser technology makes Starlink satellite move the orbit’s orbit to the device other than beaming to the ground then to the phone.  With the space laser’s availability, the Starlink satellites can transfer many gigabytes of data. When the space laser functions totally, Starlink is among the fastest satellites available to move data worldwide, Tice stated.  

She said that Starlink is about to complete the first part of the separate beta planning and testing, and it will bring to the public trial schedules other times this year.  The SpaceX company is contacting people who have applied to be part of program beta. On Thursday, the launch was a record-breaking activity: 180 satellites launched within a single month, the fast launch of a satellite in the world’s history. The 180 satellites followed more than 300 satellites for SpaceX company to increase the Starlink activeness.  In May the year 2019, Musk said to have an economically viable system, it needs more than one thousand satellites in orbit. 

From there, SpaceX has plans to keep soaring towards floating internet backbone which can be able to offer high-speed web access to a large part of the planet. The company has asked for permission to put a combined total of 42,000 satellites into the orbit to create a ‘megaconstellation’ around the Earth.
