The next generation of satellite internet is here... but is it any good... and how does it work, exactly? But most importantly, can you pwn noobs from space with it?

    Better than my internet. Mine is exactly 27 ping too, but 128 mbps download. About 10 years ago in my location, Windstream was way oversold in the area with zero competition, the maximum of 3mbps we paid for was actually only 0.25-0.50 mbps download speeds. Until after midnight when it was less crowded.

    The 100Watt of power to run the dish is its biggest handicap for the moment, as I'm am sure lots of sailboats would love to have one, especially due to the fact, that many hotspots in popular sailing destinations are limiting or blocking internet access.

    I mean, I'm fine here with Gig speed, but this has to be an absolute game-changer for rural areas and/or places where Big Telecom companies own the politicians to keep them from pushing higher speeds. My stepmother lives just 20 miles away and has just two options with the higher speed being just 24mbps down speed.

    I am in rural New Zealand and still on ADSL (12mbps down and 1mbps up) with no chance of fibre in the foreseeable future. Takes me about 6 years to upload a 2Gb video. This has got me kind of excited.

    its coming to my area by the end of this year, the biggest limiting factor for me is the 500$ for the equipment to start it out, after that its only barely more expensive than what I have now which is 10down 5up and it drops out all the time.

    2 years ago i was bearly getting 5 down and 1 up where i live in australia (suburb's near city) now after our government finished a project to get better internet to the masses by putting in outdated technology i now enjoy 50 down and 5 up on a very good day. If space x allows for australians to get accsess to this service our governments 8 year long project and billions of dollars in funding is pretty much out the window. Which is fucking hilarious to me.

    I moved out the country a few years ago, and i love it but I miss playing online games. I got an email from Starlink a few weeks ago saying the beta will be expanding to my area mid to late this year, I don't think I have ever paid for anything so fast. If the service works as advertised I will finally build a new PC to go with it.

    Right now, I have a dream where I can pack a trailer, drive into the mountains for a bit, set up camp somewhere at random, somewhat far from civilization, and work. (I'm halfway there working from home.) While expensive to set up and run, particularly if I also want to have a physical home where I live that still has a hard connection (and only roam once a week out of a month), this is a major step in making that dream possible!

  • The Papaw

    This is all new and great, but down the road (like cell carriers when they launch internet), what happens to speeds once the satellite has reached its max users and congestion starts (or has it started already? The 1st youtubers regularly posted videos show speeds of over 100mbs, now more users are showing average of 50mbs, that's a big drop in such a short amount of time, ya know). What about data centers going down. The data has to be connected in somewhere, are there more than one location, can the data be re-routed without disruption to the user??? Is anyone asking these types of questions? I cant find any answers to these types of questions out there. Oh and another point, how it is bringing the net to folks that don't have, well I am ne of those folks, one due to location, the 2nd due to cost, $2,000 (500+99*12) for the first year isn't going to help anyone with limited income. BTW, was accepted into the beta, just cant afford it to pay that much to test something.

    This is awesome... Linus- Can you please do more videos on Starlink & also RISC-V??? This was more of a teaser; as some pics & video were shown, but no gaming, Kodi/IPTV/Terrarium/Plex, nor Live Streaming. Also alot of the system's components, nor uplink~downlink low latency & connecting to satellites via. Starlink OR Connecting to Satellites by way of ISP coaxial/fiber wasn't gone over in depth like you usually do either! So if you could Do more vids on Starlink/Outernet/Go More In-Depth About The Satellite Constellation, The Components, & How It All Works... THAT WOULD BE SUPER COOL!!! Also Maybe A Vid On Connecting to Internet via. Sat Comms through regular internet ISPs that would be a killer video!!! Years ago I started doing this spacenet Outernet project as a maker project similar to what ppl are doing with SBCs, SoCs, & LoRa are starting to do & with the purpose similar to Starlink... However without billions of $$$ making the specialized systems, & components was difficult; as they were hard to find, too expensive, or the tech didn't even exist yet... I had made progress on building it & still have the components & have been working on it again!!! As you so aptly pointed out... you not having internet with only 1 phone line before DSL... I had the exact same issue + my parent was in IT since Analog mainframes & hated their job so except a work computer NO computers were allowed in the house:'-( So I saved up & bought a laptop, but alas was caught & had to go to friends houses to get online ... but I digress... So now the maker project that I was working on might just be able to get finished now since Starlink, other competitors & ARM & RISC-V & SoC are coming more into the civilian market... I envision a way anyone could get great radio, TV, telecommunications & Internet anywhere in the world from the largest Metro cities to people in the middle of nowhere!!! Starlink+Other Competitors Satcomms, ųSats & nanoSats are going up that might actually make what was started a reality!!! I hope to see more Starlink & SatComm content from you all @ LTT!!! You guys rock!!!

    It bothers me when LTT (who it's clear know a lot about other things) discuss network topics they don't understand. 27ms is the round trip time which if you're using a modern operating system that includes window-scaling, isn't going to adversely affect you in anything other than gaming*. Even assuming you don't have access to tcp window scaling, you'd have to see latency of 120ms or greater just for your theoretical TCP throughput to dip below 1Gbps *Even then for most games the difference between 5ms and 27ms isn't going to be noticable to anyone but a pro.
