SpaceX’s Starlink has begun sending out beta invitations for its satellite Internet service in Canada.
Reddit customers have sent out invitations to Canadians living in Ontario, Alberta, Manitoba, British Columbia, New Brunswick, Nova Scotia and Saskatchewan.
Invitations say Starlink Internet in Canada costs 9,129 a month, and the dish costs $ 649. It should be noted that Starlink has unlimited bandwidth on the internet.
I received an invitation at latitude 49.5 in Cranbrook, British Columbia, Canada. I’m going to pass on that now. The starting cost is $ 799.68, ”said a Reddit customer.
It goes like this Starlink recently received regulatory approval From the Canadian authorities earlier this month. Starlink has received a lot of following in Canada because people living in rural areas hope that the service will eventually connect at a reasonable speed with reasonable prices.
SpaceX CEO Elon Musk tweeted There will be a “big expansion of the beta program in 6 to 8 weeks”, so more Canadians are likely to receive invitations in the coming weeks.
The Starlink team has noted in previous invitations that beta participants could see data speeds ranging from 50Mbps to 150Mbps and delays of 20ms to 40ms over the next few months.
SpaceX also recently released a Starlink App for iOS And Android users. The app helps beta participants determine the installation location that ensures the best quality of service and allows users to check for interruptions to the service.
StarLink aims to influence the vast network of hundreds of low-Earth-Orbit (LEO) satellites to provide high-speed Internet in some parts of the US and Canada.
