Starlink is a new satellite internet service developed by space exploration company, SpaceX, owned by Elon Musk. Starlink internet works by beaming data signals between thousands of low-earth-orbit (LEO) satellites overhead and gateway stations on the ground below. Already, Starlink is the third-largest satellite internet provider in the U.S.

If you live anywhere in the U.S., you’re most likely covered by Starlink satellite service. In fact, Starlink provides service to over 400,000 customers across 36 countries. The Starlink coverage map above shows the ever-expanding footprint of Starlink internet coverage. Currently, over 2,700 low-earth-orbit (LEO) Starlink satellites orbit the Earth, providing internet service to many areas.

Here are some quick stats regarding Starlink’s availability:

  • 400,000+ current subscribers
  • Approximately 2,700 LEO satellites in orbit
  • 53 total licensed launches of Starlink satellites by SpaceX
  • 36 countries served worldwide

Starlink Plans and Pricing

Best Features: Things to Consider:
  • Rural availability
  • Unlimited data
  • No hidden fees
  • No contracts
  • Limited availability as SpaceX continues to fulfill existing preorders
  • High upfront cost for equipment
  • No professional installation

Starlink internet deals and pricing are straightforward and free of hidden fees, offering four plan types. For the residential Starlink internet plan, customers can expect to pay $110 per month, while the RV internet plan costs $135 per month. Both Starlink internet plans offer download speeds up to 250 Mbps and require a $599 upfront payment for the hardware (dish, router, and cables).

Starlink Business internet, on the other hand, costs $500 per month with a one-time hardware cost of $2,500. Starlink Maritime internet costs $5,000 per month and comes with two high-performance Starlink dish terminals for an upfront cost of $10,000.

Unlike other satellite companies, Starlink doesn’t allow subscribers to lease their equipment. Also, service may not be available in your area. In this situation, you can place a $99 deposit ($500 for Starlink Business) applicable toward your Starlink Kit purchase.

Plan Name Download Speed Starting Price Data Cap
Starlink Residential Satellite Up to 250 Mbps $110 per month Unlimited Data
Starlink RV Satellite Up to 250 Mbps $135 per month Unlimited Data
Starlink Business Satellite Up to 250 Mbps $500 per month Unlimited Data
Starlink Maritime Satellite Up to 350 Mbps $5,000 per month Unlimited Data

If you’ve visited the Starlink website recently, you may have seen a message like, “Starlink expects to expand service in your area by early to mid 2022. You will receive a notification once your Starlink is ready to ship.” SpaceX is working to fulfill 750,000 preorders. Delays in service activation are primarily due to two factors: capacity and silicon.

Even though 2,700 Starlink satellites roam the sky in a scheduled pattern, certain sectors of the Earth are less visited than others, limiting the capacity Starlink has to take on new subscribers. Since their satellite launch operations began in 2019, Starlink has successfully completed 53 launches, and the company is planning to continue launching at an ambitious pace to increase capacity and fulfill future orders.

Silicon supply has become a hot issue for Starlink and every other tech company attempting to supply customers with high-tech gadgetry. A perfect storm of circumstances gathered in 2020, causing a ripple effect of silicon chip shortages worldwide and serious delays in production for SpaceX’s Starlink customer kits.

Starlink Internet Speeds

Current speeds offered by a Starlink satellite connection top out at download speeds up to 350 Mbps. Elon Musk’s SpaceX intends to increase the maximum speed to 10 Gbps in the future. These speeds will require specialized laser technology that SpaceX is still in the process of developing and expanding.

This technology would outfit future LEO satellites with the capability to communicate directly with each other while in orbit via laser. Since transmissions of these sorts travel exponentially faster in the vacuum of space than on the ground, 10 Gbps download speeds may become a distinct reality. Until then, Starlink LEO satellites do all of their communication with gateway base stations located on Earth to send data transmissions where they need to go.

    Starlink internet is $110 per month for the Starlink Residential plan, $135 per month for the Starlink RV plan, $500 for the Starlink Business plan, and $5,000 per month for the Starlink Maritime plan.

  • Where is Starlink available?

    Currently, Starlink is most available in Northern U.S. states that border Canada, such as Washington, North Dakota, and Michigan, since this was the region SpaceX focused on during its beta testing of Starlink. Since exiting the beta phase, Starlink has become fully operational to service locations across the United States and internationally.

  • How is Starlink different?

    Traditional satellite internet speeds top out at 100 Mbps. Starlink internet download speeds reach up to 350 Mbps, which is three times as fast as traditional internet because its thousands of LEO satellites orbit at a much lower altitude, increasing communication speed.

  • How do I contact Starlink internet customer service?

    You can contact customer service either through the Starlink app or via the Starlink website.

  • How good is Starlink internet?

    So far, Elon Musk and his Starlink internet have delivered on expectations in terms of performance since exiting the beta phase in October 2021. As SpaceX continues to launch more LEO satellites and expands its capacity to add subscribers, more feedback on performance will surface.
