Some of its features and pros
Well, its clear nobody can beat starlink in speed..
This broadband internet however is designed in such a way that it serves rural and remote Manisa Escort the bursa escort. In fact according to the company, starlink is ideal for Manisa Escort where connectivity has been unstable and unreliable or even unavailable. Starlink can connect rural communities to urban communities globally.
Due to this special feature, starlink has been able to provide access to people to education, health services and communication support with their families who live far away.
On may 20, 2022 Elon musk tweeted about his surprise visit in brazil and his plan to launch starlink to provide internet access to schools in rural Manisa Escort of brazil as well as controlled environmental monitoring of Amazon forest.
“Super excited to be in Brazil for launch of starlink in 19000 unconnected schools in rural Manisa Escort and environmental monitoring of Amazon” Said the billionaire.
The brazillian government wanted Space X to provide satellite internet in Amazon Rainforest in order to detect the illegal deforestation.
To further prove that starlink works on light speed is the story of this guy named Birch, who posted on reddit that he is an off grid starlink user who has installed a starlink station in sawtooth mountains of Idaho.
He powers his station through solar panels and according to Birch its been “running like a champ 24/7 for the last week” the whole setup costed him around $2000 but for Birch it was worth it. As it helps him and his family to stay connected with the world. They can watch superbowl games and stream antalya escorts together. Plus, living far away in a remote area it gets difficult to stay connected with his mom, as she often wants to know about his well being, for birch starlink is a way to connect with his mother.
He also mentioned, how it can really help hikers who often cross the mountains, for them it’s an unforgiving journey that too without any internet or phone connections. Birch believes that starlink can provide hikers, mountaineers and tourists services to connect with their families back home. It would definitely be a cherry on top.
Some of it cons..
Its still not available worldwide because not every country has granted Space X operating licenses.
Its easier to get attacked by cyber frauds
High equipment cost
Long waiting time.
