Starlink satellite internet coverage map, cost, speed and availability

Starlink might change the internet as we know it, and it’s thanks to an ambitious plan laid out by tech billionaire and Tesla founder Elon Musk. Preorders have already started for this new satellite internet service, and it promises to deliver broadband speeds up to 300Mbps to anyone in the world regardless of where they might be. Whether it be a rural farm in Iowa or the small island nation of Tuvalu, customers have been told to expect download speeds from 210 Mbps to 10 Gbps. 

On the heel of Starlink’s preorders, Elon Musk was able to bring SpaceX’s stock valuation to $74 billion, up 60% from August 2020. It shows the investor confidence in Musk’s satellite megaconstellation. SpaceX is continuing to launch more satellites, albeit with a few delays, and it looks like service will soon start up in Europe. And now we have an indication of how rollout is going, thanks to a new coverage map courtesy of PCMag.
