Reliable internet service in rural areas is hard to find, but Starlink offers fast speeds at reasonable rates.
But, is it an option for your business?
Read on to find out for certain.
If you're one of the 549,000 businesses registered in rural areas throughout the UK downloading anything likely is still an unwieldy task due to the lack of internet options and unreliable speeds.
But that doesn't mean you should persevere with slow speeds. If you're looking for a reliable internet solution, Starlink could be the answer.
What is Starlink?
It features high-speed, low latency internet, allowing for video calls, online gaming, streaming, and other activities that were once unthinkable for satellite internet. Starlink is a great internet option for rural and remote communities, where internet service is usually unavailable or unreliable. This service is available in at least 35 countries. Satellite internet is not a new service. It’s been around since the 1990s but has been slow to be a viable competitor to other high-speed internet services. For many rural businesses, satellite internet isn’t great, but it’s the only available option.
How fast is Starlink?
Although it's still in its early days, users can expect download speeds of up to 350 Mbps, which is fantastic for many small rural businesses, as 1.3 UK premises don't have access to superfast download speeds, and 17% of rural areas suffer with 10mbps or less!
Can my current equipment support Starlink?
Without a doubt! Our Starlink service comes with everything you'll need, and our experts will be with you every step of the way to ensure your new connection is up and running in no time.
What is the difference between Starlink and other satellite providers?
Although the broad strokes of how Starlink delivers internet to homes and businesses are similar to those used by its competitors, there are some key differences.
It has the fastest download speed of any satellite broadband service.
While most satellite providers limit your download speeds once you exceed a certain amount of data usage, Starlink doesn't have any such restrictions.
Whether you're in the rural Scottish highlands, the middle of the ocean, or the Australian outback, you can expect reliable connectivity wherever you are.
Starlink is building more satellites to increase internet speeds, reduce any lag times, and improve overall connectivity.
