The new dish also includes a new router. Like the previous one, it’s a Wi-Fi 5 device, but its MU-MIMO capabilities have been increased from 2×2 to 3×3, meaning it supports three independent channels of simultaneous traffic that bring multiple devices online at once or combine them to speed up the speeds. to client devices with multiple native antennas. The new router loses the Ethernet port from the original, so if you want to connect your own third-party router, you’ll need to buy a separate Etherlink adapter from the Starlink store.

SpaceX Starlink Satellite Internet Testing


starlink left beta in October, and will continue to fulfill orders on a first-come, first-served basis. In our first, hands-on testing of the service earlier this year, the average download speeds were 78 Mbps, with an average latency of 36 ms. Both are good numbers by satellite internet standards, though Musk has said he expects Starlink’s service to offer top speeds of up to 300 Mbps in 2022.
