Two of Elon Musk’s great projects are the Tesla electric motor and SpaceX, the company called to lead aerospace flights. However, there is another project that, although smaller, is a great solution to a big problem. We are talking about a very ambitious project that arose with the intention of bringing the Internet to rural areas and to the most remote places on the planet. His name is star link, a satellite network that offers internet connection at a fair price and that guarantees more power than other more expensive ones.

Elon Musk’s announcement that comes through his Twitter account explains the benefits of a new plan for future customers. Through this technology, users will be offered speeds ranging from 150 to 500 Mbps with a latency of 20 to 40ms, surpassing any other service in its class. In addition to that, it will double the upload speed to offer between 20 to 40Mbps, your name starlink premium.

Another benefit that subscribers of the Premium version will obtain according to Musk, is that it will work better in “extreme weather conditions”; On top of that, it ensures that your customers will have access to 24-hour priority support.

At a comparative level, the Starlink Basic service is much cheaper than the Starlink Premium, however, the latter is an unimaginable solution a few years ago for companies operating in rural environments. That is, for a higher price they will get an internet with good connection in remote areas where traditional systems do not reach.

The basic version of satellite connection offered by Elon Musk’s company costs 499 euros per antenna and costs 99 euros per month. On the other hand, the service Starlink Premium starts at $2,500 for the antenna and $500 per month. It should be noted that the cost in euros for Spain is unknown.
