SpaceX, led by Elon Musk, has raised the bar in the satellite internet game with the introduction of a gigabit speed option for its Starlink service. Targeted at users with deep pockets, this cutting-edge offering promises an unprecedented 10 gigabits per second (Gbps) of broadband speed through its innovative “Community Gateways” program. However, this extraordinary service comes with an upfront cost of $1.25 million and a monthly fee of $750,000 after installation.
Starlink’s Gigabit Speed Option
The new gigabit speed option from Starlink is not your typical satellite internet service. Priced at a staggering $1.25 million upfront and a subsequent $750,000 per month, this premium service takes connectivity to a whole new level. SpaceX is not just delivering a satellite dish; it is sending out a team to build a dedicated facility capable of receiving 10Gbps from Starlink’s orbiting satellites.
