Elon Musk and its Area Exploration Applied sciences Company (SpaceX) have set a excessive bar for any exercise they do. That is additionally true for the satellite tv for pc web service particularly Starlink. At present, we realized that the latter has achieved one more excellent obtain velocity in the US.

As you understand, Starlink is a low Earth orbit small satellite tv for pc web constellation. It has a purpose of offering web entry to all people no matter the realm they reside in. previous to this, numerous velocity take a look at outcomes confirmed that Starlink surpasses broadband obtain speeds in most nations. As for the newest take a look at outcomes, it achieved 301 Mbps in obtain. Thus, we’re speaking about one of many quickest web providers globally. Nonetheless, there’s nonetheless room for enchancment and it refers principally to the latency. Additionally, the add velocity nonetheless wants enhancements.
Earlier at present, a Reddit person shared the web velocity take a look at end result. The screenshot revealed by DullKn1fe exhibits that Starlink can attain an eye-popping obtain velocity of 301 Mbps. From the feedback, we are able to be taught that the person lives in rural Wisconsin, situated within the Northeastern phase of the continental United States.
Sadly, as talked about above, the obtain velocity and the latency aren’t spectacular. As an illustration, the person might get a obtain velocity of 20.5 Mbps and 78 milliseconds (ms) in latency.
Is This Starlink Obtain Pace Excessive?
What’s extra essential this isn’t a steady community velocity. We imply, in March we realized that Starlink web velocity has fluctuations. As an illustration, within the talked about month, the very best obtain velocity was 299 Mbps (Grass Valley California). Whereas, there have been some disappointing outcomes as properly, 1.23 Mbps.
Analysis carried out by Ookla for the fourth quarter of final 12 months confirmed that Starlink has a mean obtain velocity within the U.S. of 105 Mbps. On the identical time, Ookla outlined that the quickest common obtain velocity was detected in Miami Date County, Florida. The common obtain velocity of the web service is 191 Mbps on this space. The slowest was in Columbia County, Oregon, reaching 64.95 Mbps.
Nonetheless, the quarter-over-quarter comparability exhibits that the vary between the very best and lowest obtain speeds elevated by 30 Mbps or 30% over Q3’s 100 Mbps. However the common obtain velocity was improved by 10% solely.
P.S. a German Starlink person mentioned that he might attain 250 Mbps in obtain velocity. On the identical time, the add velocity was 30 Mbps. This may sound fairly attention-grabbing, however in Might, one other German person mentioned he might attain a stunning obtain velocity of 560 Mbps.
