Currently, there are over 1,000 satellites of the space Internet from SpaceX in orbit. Another package will join them in the following days. The launch as part of the Starlink-17 mission took place with the rocket's main stage previously used 4 times. It has already participated in the Starlink-14, Starlink-11, GPS III-3 and Turksat 5A missions. Cargo covers also participated in the missions. One of them in the SAOCOM 1B mission, and the other in GPS III.
Thanks to rocket recycle, SpaceX can make huge financial savings Hidden Links thus offer lower prices for cargo transportation. In the newest mission, SpaceX also regained its main rank with the Of Course I Still Love You barge sailing the Atlantic Ocean and the ships: Ms. Tree and Ms. Chief.
SpaceX's Space Internet works great. Elon Musk announces that Starlink is to increase speed and reduce delays. Despite this, most users are already downloading at an average speed of 100 Mb / s (max 180 Mb / s) and upload speed of 25 Mb / s (max 35 Mb / s), all with ping at 30 ms.
The service is constantly being developed. Currently, the space Internet can be used in the United States, Canada and Great Britain. SpaceX asks itself to pay $ 500 for the modem and the plate, and $ 100 a month for internet access. Musk announced that the efficiency of the network is to increase even more, and users will be able to count on download at 200 Mb / s, upload at 50 Mb / s and ping at 20 ms. Starlink is expected to come to the EU in March this year.
