The next generation of satellite internet is here... but is it any good... and how does it work, exactly? But most importantly, can you pwn noobs from space with it?

    Having hughesnet gen 4 all my life with the inability to upgrade it for weird server issues, when I got the email from starlink saying it's in my area I instantly ordered it up, can't wait till I get it

  • MrSuperfabio1

    we use starlink in the airforce, i have had my fair share of use with starlink. its very impressive

  • LefNut

    I moved out the country a few years ago, and i love it but I miss playing online games. I got an email from Starlink a few weeks ago saying the beta will be expanding to my area mid to late this year, I don't think I have ever paid for anything so fast. If the service works as advertised I will finally build a new PC to go with it.

    Right now, I have a dream where I can pack a trailer, drive into the mountains for a bit, set up camp somewhere at random, somewhat far from civilization, and work. (I'm halfway there working from home.) While expensive to set up and run, particularly if I also want to have a physical home where I live that still has a hard connection (and only roam once a week out of a month), this is a major step in making that dream possible!

    This is all new and great, but down the road (like cell carriers when they launch internet), what happens to speeds once the satellite has reached its max users and congestion starts (or has it started already? The 1st youtubers regularly posted videos show speeds of over 100mbs, now more users are showing average of 50mbs, that's a big drop in such a short amount of time, ya know). What about data centers going down. The data has to be connected in somewhere, are there more than one location, can the data be re-routed without disruption to the user??? Is anyone asking these types of questions? I cant find any answers to these types of questions out there. Oh and another point, how it is bringing the net to folks that don't have, well I am ne of those folks, one due to location, the 2nd due to cost, $2,000 (500+99*12) for the first year isn't going to help anyone with limited income. BTW, was accepted into the beta, just cant afford it to pay that much to test something.

    This is awesome... Linus- Can you please do more videos on Starlink & also RISC-V??? This was more of a teaser; as some pics & video were shown, but no gaming, Kodi/IPTV/Terrarium/Plex, nor Live Streaming. Also alot of the system's components, nor uplink~downlink low latency & connecting to satellites via. Starlink OR Connecting to Satellites by way of ISP coaxial/fiber wasn't gone over in depth like you usually do either! So if you could Do more vids on Starlink/Outernet/Go More In-Depth About The Satellite Constellation, The Components, & How It All Works... THAT WOULD BE SUPER COOL!!! Also Maybe A Vid On Connecting to Internet via. Sat Comms through regular internet ISPs that would be a killer video!!! Years ago I started doing this spacenet Outernet project as a maker project similar to what ppl are doing with SBCs, SoCs, & LoRa are starting to do & with the purpose similar to Starlink... However without billions of $$$ making the specialized systems, & components was difficult; as they were hard to find, too expensive, or the tech didn't even exist yet... I had made progress on building it & still have the components & have been working on it again!!! As you so aptly pointed out... you not having internet with only 1 phone line before DSL... I had the exact same issue + my parent was in IT since Analog mainframes & hated their job so except a work computer NO computers were allowed in the house:'-( So I saved up & bought a laptop, but alas was caught & had to go to friends houses to get online ... but I digress... So now the maker project that I was working on might just be able to get finished now since Starlink, other competitors & ARM & RISC-V & SoC are coming more into the civilian market... I envision a way anyone could get great radio, TV, telecommunications & Internet anywhere in the world from the largest Metro cities to people in the middle of nowhere!!! Starlink+Other Competitors Satcomms, ųSats & nanoSats are going up that might actually make what was started a reality!!! I hope to see more Starlink & SatComm content from you all @ LTT!!! You guys rock!!!

  • netcellent

    It bothers me when LTT (who it's clear know a lot about other things) discuss network topics they don't understand. 27ms is the round trip time which if you're using a modern operating system that includes window-scaling, isn't going to adversely affect you in anything other than gaming*. Even assuming you don't have access to tcp window scaling, you'd have to see latency of 120ms or greater just for your theoretical TCP throughput to dip below 1Gbps *Even then for most games the difference between 5ms and 27ms isn't going to be noticable to anyone but a pro.

    The idea is great, but the implementation needs to be much better. The satellites are way too bright and are ruining astronomy and astrophotography. The entire Orion Constellation, one of the most photogenic areas, is being actively ruined by so many satellites. Having 10 minute subs ruined one after the other is a real pain the ass, but even scientific observation and study is being hindered. Progress has been made, but it needs to go much, much further.

    "Speed will double to ~300Mb/s & latency will drop to ~20ms later this year," Musk said in a tweet on Monday. Musk added that Starlink will reach customers around "most" of the Earth by the end of 2021, and is expecting to have complete global coverage "by next year." I don’t think Elon is hyperbolic if he does what he says he’ll do. We’ll see! Great test and video.

    I'm very fortunate to live in the Netherlands where the population density is high enough that the whole nation has ground based internet infrastructure and i can get 100Mbps down 20Mbps up from Tmobile for only €33,- per month. I'm glad this at least makes it able for many people to get faster internet, even if it costs more.

  • Shayhan

    It may look appealing at first but you need to remember that the speed is only usable because there's pretty much no load on the Starlink network right now. Only the beta testers are using it right now. Imagine how slow it will be when the masses sign-on and consume all the bandwidth. When the bulk of consumers actually start onboarding and using it for their 4K HDR 60fps twitch streams and all the other crap people do it will be no better than the internet we currently have. That's a large price they are asking for just regular old broadband internet speeds in a fancy sounding package.

  • mllt

    I use a shitty adapter and it gets 4K video without any lag. Starlink is made for rural areas, not for regular areas.

  • Ishari

    This is a key element in my dream of moving to a remote rural area while maintaining a (remote) job in the tech industry. Nice to see it performs so well, especially that we can probably expect the experience to improve even more when more satellites are deployed

    One aspect of Starlink you did not get into is that they are targeting low-density areas. In fact, they can't handle high density usage. It's not just that Starlink competes better in rural, low density areas, it's also that they can't handle more than X users per square kilometer (X being a number that will go up as they add more satellites).
