  • [ARS TECHNICA] Details on SpaceX Starlink beta emerge along with photos of user terminals

    As SpaceX readies beta-testing for its Starlink broadband service, Internet users have dug into the Starlink website and found new details on the upcoming beta tests and images of the user terminals that will be installed outside customers' homes.

    Reddit users yesterday said they did some data mining of the Starlink support website and main site, uncovering an FAQ about the beta trials, terms of service, and images of the satellite dish from different angles.

    I just want to know how well they're going to do in bad weather.

      I haven't looked in to the specific technology being used by Starlink, but even when I lived in the middle of nowhere on satellite internet back in 2005 or so, we still managed to get enough of a signal on a cloudy day or even light rain to be able to check emails, browsing media heavy web pages was near impossible or downloading copies of songs in Limewire that you had physical copies of already was near impossible though...

      I would imagine with Starlink's satellites being in lower orbit and with advances in technology, only a really bad snow or thunderstorm would cut your connection completely. Even current copper cable can be taken down by a bad storm in some rural areas, so as long as it can do better than that, I think it's going to be pretty promising.
