Elon Musk’s SpaceX Internet is just starting to kick off commercialization of its Starlink satellite-based internet service, and while it will initially be only available in northern U.S. and Canada, ultimately the up to tens of thousands of Starlink satellites will be able to deliver fast gap-free internet all over the world. The system has already been in testing but now the company is expanding it in a “Better Than Nothing” beta test Listen to this story on the TechFirst podcast $500 gets you the Starlink terminal: a mini satellite dish with a mounting tripod and a WiFi router.

And $99/month gets you between 50 and 150 MB/s with 20-40 milliseconds of latency.

Key Points SpaceX is expanding the beta test of its Starlink satellite internet service, sending emails on Monday to people who expressed interest in signing up for the service.

Called the “Better Than Nothing Beta” test, according to multiple screenshots of the email seen by CNBC, initial Starlink service is priced at $99 a month – plus a $499 upfront cost to order the Starlink Kit.

That kit includes a user terminal to connect to the satellites, a mounting tripod and a Wi-Fi router.

“As you can tell from the title, we are trying to lower your initial expectations,” the emails said, signed Starlink Team.” “Expect to see data speeds vary from 50Mb/s to 150Mb/s and latency from 20ms to 40ms over the next several months as we enhance the Starlink system.

For the last few months SpaceX has conducted a limited private beta test with employees which the company has said showed strong results in both latency and download speeds, key measures for an internet service provider.

Will low-Earth orbit (LEO) satellites improve satellite internet service?

Starlink (from SpaceX) may offer faster internet speeds and less lag than other satellite internet providers because its satellites are in low-Earth orbit (LEO) . Satellites that are in LEO are closer to the Earth, and since data doesn’t have to travel as far it can provide an advantage when playing high-speed games online.

Starlink is a new satellite provider that’s available to customers in parts of the US, Canada, and the UK during the public beta.
