SpaceX’s Starlink internet beta is giving some users blistering download speeds of more than 160 Mbps
SpaceX’s public beta test of its Starlink satellite internet is giving some users download speeds of more than 160 megabits per second (Mbps) — faster than 95% of US connections, according to speed test provider Ookla.
One Starlink customer in rural Montana said their download speed was 174 Mbps. “Starlink will forever change the game,” they said.
SpaceX said in an October 26 email to beta test subscribers that they should expect speeds between 50 and 150 Mbps, with intermittent outages.
Most user speeds fall in that range, according to a list compiled by the Starlink Reddit community.
