We’re on the cusp of a new internet revolution. There’s a race to provide super fast satellite internet to every inch of the world, and SpaceX’s Starlink is in the lead. My Starlink Satellite Dish just arrived!! The results of my speed test comparing Starlink to my old internet connection were… surprising. I show you the setup, compare costs, and talk about why low-earth-orbit satellite internet is important!

FULL TRANSCRIPT

00:00
my starlight kit just arrived and i’m
00:02
super excited to set it up and do a
00:04
speed test to compare it to my regular
00:06
internet
00:07
but first let’s talk about why it’s a
00:09
game changer we’re on the cusp of a new
00:11
internet revolution that involves
00:13
satellites
00:13
and a race to provide super fast
00:15
internet to every
00:16
inch of the world 40 of the population
00:19
doesn’t have internet access
00:21
if billions of people come online the
00:23
world wide web will look
00:25
like a very different place ordinarily
00:27
to access the internet in remote
00:29
villages
00:30
you need cellular towers connected by
00:32
copper cables
00:33
and the costs of these are astronomical
00:35
satellite internet already exists but
00:37
it’s dominated by a handful of players
00:39
that have huge satellites way up in
00:41
space
00:42
their services are expensive and
00:44
connections have big lags because of how
00:46
far
00:47
above the earth the satellites live now
00:49
many companies are racing to launch
00:51
constellations of what are called low
00:53
earth orbit satellites that are much
00:55
smaller and much closer to earth it’s
00:58
expected that these connections will be
00:59
way faster
01:00
the costs will be lower and service will
01:03
be available
01:03
everywhere you could be in a jungle in
01:05
south america and
01:07
if you had just an internet link somehow
01:09
you could you’d have access to all of
01:10
humanity’s information
01:11
starlink says that their service will be
01:13
available even in the poorest locations
01:15
the improvements to education and
01:17
medical services for these communities
01:19
would be incredible and the whole nature
01:21
of the internet would be
01:22
changed completely if three billion more
01:24
people were suddenly
01:26
able to come online for the first time
01:28
more than a dozen companies have applied
01:29
for permission to operate constellations
01:31
of satellites and provide this kind of
01:33
internet
01:34
service amazon has a project called
01:36
project creeper
01:37
but they have yet to finish their
01:38
satellite’s design and begin launching
01:40
one web is another major player but they
01:43
were just bailed out of bankruptcy calls
01:45
by covert and are now 45
01:47
owned by the british government i have
01:50
doubts that this government entanglement
01:51
will enable them to move as fast as
01:53
their competitors
01:54
but they just released a new fleet of
01:56
one web internet satellites last night
01:58
so
01:59
they’re definitely moving meanwhile
02:01
spacex is leaving competitors in the
02:03
dust
02:04
so far they have over a thousand
02:05
satellites in orbit and are already
02:07
offering consumer
02:08
services in beta i love that about elon
02:10
musk he gets things done
02:12
it’s their service they’ll be testing
02:14
out today let’s see what’s in the box
02:24
users get this pizza sized dish it
02:27
clicks easily into a stand you plug it
02:29
straight into the wall
02:30
and into a rouser and voila high-speed
02:32
internet the router itself is pretty
02:34
cool looking too if a cyber truck were
02:36
reincarnated as a router
02:38
it would probably look like this all
02:40
this equipment was five hundred dollars
02:42
by comparison my current modem and
02:44
router together cost 260 dollars so
02:46
starlink equipment is around double the
02:48
cost
02:49
if you know how to use a drill then
02:50
there are no installation costs you put
02:52
the disc outside screw it down
02:54
plug it into a power outlet and you’re
02:56
done by comparison to have my old
02:58
internet professionally installed cost
03:00
me close to a hundred dollars now you
03:02
should place the dish
03:03
someone with a completely open sky any
03:05
overhanging trees
03:06
chimneys or roofs will give you
03:08
connectivity issues i bought a pole to
03:10
make sure
03:10
the disk was high enough to be out of
03:12
range of obstacles which cost
03:14
thirty dollars you may be looking at
03:16
extra installation costs to get the
03:17
cords
03:18
inside but if you’re handy with a drill
03:20
then it shouldn’t be a problem
03:22
the service itself is 99 a month which
03:24
is just more than i was paying before at
03:27
89.99
03:28
so given that i am paying slightly more
03:30
for the starlink
03:31
am i getting more there’s probably a low
03:33
bar there i have always been played with
03:35
bad internet
03:36
wherever i live weak connections that
03:38
drop out in the middle of interviews
03:40
but i’ve had no choice but to use
03:42
certain internet providers because
03:44
they were usually the only ones who
03:45
offered service to wherever i lived
03:48
and they had no real incentive to
03:50
provide good service to me because
03:52
they had no competition so what i’m
03:54
super excited about is
03:55
finally having a choice comparing
03:57
services and saying
03:58
i’ll choose the better one thanks so
04:01
let’s see if the spacex service
04:03
is actually better a speed test on my
04:05
phone comparing the wi-fi connection of
04:07
my old internet and the starlink
04:08
connection
04:09
showed that my old internet got 20
04:11
megabits per second download
04:13
to upload and starlink got 107 megabits
04:17
per second download
04:18
and 12 upload wowzers that’s
04:22
5x download speed and 6x upload speed
04:25
this is an incredible difference
04:27
now 100 megabits is not as good as the
04:29
one giga connections that my san
04:31
francisco friends brag about
04:32
but it’s way better than what i had and
04:35
spacex says that once they have all
04:37
their satellites deployed and they’re
04:38
aiming for around
04:39
30 000 it will dramatically improve data
04:42
speed and latency even more
04:44
so the verdict starlink could be the
04:46
internet solution
04:47
rural households are desperately in need
04:49
of
04:50
and also bring internet three billion
04:52
people for the first time
04:54
it could change the face of remote work
04:56
opportunities as people continue to move
04:58
out of large cities
04:59
and spacex said that they’ll eventually
05:01
be offering portable satellites too
05:03
so you might be able to strip one to an
05:05
rv or a sailing boat and
05:07
work on the go it’s also really nice to
05:10
see increasing competition in the
05:11
internet service provider space
05:13
providing higher speeds than previously
05:15
available starlink is currently only
05:17
available on a first come
05:19
first serve basis and there are only
05:21
about 10 000 people using starlight
05:23
internet in the us
05:24
and abroad it’s still in beta and there
05:26
are bound to be connectivity issues
05:28
until all the satellites are deployed
05:30
and while they readjust
05:31
so i’ll monitor how it goes and i’ll
05:33
keep you posted i’ll also see how the
05:36
satellite holds up in strong wind and
05:38
snow
05:38
but so far i am super happy with the
05:41
purchase thank you spacex for dreaming
05:43
big
05:43
and providing cool tools
