Starlink, Elon Musk’s Internet arrives in UK until June, says ANACOM

SpaceX, a company led by electric vehicle tycoon Elon Musk, assured ANACOM that by June of this year it will start marketing its satellite Internet service, Starlink. For this year, the company wants to reach 16 thousand users in UK.

We emphasize that the Starlink service was already available in UK, however, the formalities are only now being fulfilled, with the National Communications Authority being informed of all procedures. It will arrive by the hand of SXPT.

SpaceX created the company Space Exploration Technologies UK – SXPT


It is through this new company, also led by Tesla’s president, Elon Musk, that the satellite broadband Internet service will be marketed in UK. The “official” entry into the UK’s market will take place until the end of June.

The news was made known by ANACOM through a press release published on its website. There, the regulator said that on 4 March a meeting was held, by videoconference, between the presidents of ANACOM, João Cadete de Matos, with the head of “global satellite government affairs”, Matt Botwin of SpaceX.

On the table were themes related to the installation and expansion of the constellation of Starlink satellites aimed at providing Internet anywhere in the globe. This constellation continues to increase and improve coverage.

Elon Musk’s Starlink can now supply Internet to UK

Indeed, it was also revealed that, very recently, the Starlink system already covers 100% of the national territory. Thanks to satellites already placed in orbit by the space exploration agency, Space X, the service is ready to operate in UK.

We will thus be able to contract the provision of broadband Internet via satellite, with the operations to be coordinated by SXPT. Also according to ANACOM, the service has the capacity to provide up to 50 thousand users in UK.

Starlink’s quality and supply capacity will continue to increase as new satellites are periodically added to the constellation.

Starlink is essential to reduce the digital divide, says ANACOM

We recall that last February SpaceX made available its Starlink service in UK, so it is possible to register during the testing phase. However, anyone interested can consult the website of this Internet service.

It should also be noted that Elon Musk’s company promised speeds up to 300 Mbps by the end of 2021, a doubling of the current maximum values ​​delivered by Starlink in UK.

The monthly subscription price was set at 99 dollars, about 85 euros. To this is added the cost of installation and starter kit with the necessary hardware (tripod and Wi-Fi router), with a cost of 499 dollars or 425 euros.
