Over 750,000 people worldwide have placed orders for Starlink’s satellite internet, but most are still waiting for service.
Starlink is currently available to northern latitudes of the US as well as a few other select areas. Starlink availability is expanding regularly. The best way to find out when Starlink will be available to you is by entering your address on the Starlink website.
Once you enter your address, Starlink will give you an estimated availability date for Starlink in your area. Starlink will also allow you to place a $110–$500 deposit to secure your spot on the Starlink internet waitlist.
Where is Starlink available?
Currently, Starlink is available to customers who live between 45 and 53 degrees latitude. As the satellite constellation is built out further, additional regions will be added until it is available globally. You can sign up on the Starlink waiting list if you live in the northern US, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, or parts of 10 countries in Europe (including the UK).
If you want to find out when Starlink is available in your area, you can visit the Starlink website and request notifications on when Starlink service will roll out in your area.
Can I get Starlink in urban areas?
Starlink isn’t going to be a universal internet solution for everyone, particularly for those living in urban and suburban areas. Due to satellite capacity limitations, Starlink won’t be a good choice for urban areas. With satellite internet, each geographical area has a finite amount of capacity because all internet traffic has to pass through whatever satellites are closest to that particular area. In rural areas, where the population is spread out, a high percentage of the population could use Starlink and not max out the capacity. But in high-density urban areas, even a relatively low percentage of users will quickly overload the Starlink network.
High Speeds and Low Latency
With high speeds and latency as low as 20ms in most locations, Starlink enables video calls, online gaming, streaming, and other high data rate activities that historically have not been possible with satellite internet. Users also have the option to take Starlink with them via the Portability feature or Starlink for RVs service.
