Starlink is a constellation of hundreds of satellites operating in low Earth orbit, at 550km from its surface to be precise. The ultimate goal of the project is to provide satellite internet access.

Starlink has already covered most major Indian cities, including Mumbai, Hyderabad, Delhi, and Kolkata. To check if your area is on the list, pay a visit to the project’s official website to find out.

While pre-booking has already started, SpaceX hasn’t revealed the exact launch date for the service. The company accepts credit cards, debit cards, and also Apple Pay (this service isn’t available in India).

The Starlink service is currently at the beta testing phase with data speed raging from 50Mb/s to 150Mb/s and latency varies from 20ms to 40ms. To be able to access the service, users will need a special kit with a mounting tripod, a router, and a user terminal.
