How Many People Use Starlink Satellite Internet? Elon Musk Announced!

SpaceX’s satellite internet service Starlink has broken a new record with the number of users. Here is the number of users and coverage area announced by Elon Musk!

SpaceX’s satellite internet service Starlink is not yet available in Turkey, but it is expected to be available this year. On the other hand, the number of people who bring Starlink, which is active in many of our neighbors such as Georgia and Greece, to our country in various ways and use it with a “Roam” subscription is increasing day by day.

Number of Starlink Users Announced

How many people use Starlink, which makes it possible to connect to the internet from the top of a mountain, the middle of the ocean or even from an airplane? The company announced that the number of users worldwide has reached 3 million.

Elon Musk congratulated his team for reaching 3 million subscribers in 99 countries. SpaceX sent the first batch of 60 satellites into low earth orbit in May 2019, and today the number of satellites has reached 6,000.

Starlink Satellite Internet

The biggest advantage of Starlink, which continues to offer internet service in more countries by launching new satellites into space every day, is that it offers low latency and high speeds compared to other satellite internet services.

When you use a standard satellite internet service, you can’t play games due to 3-digit latency. Speeds cannot reach 200 – 250 Mbps as Starlink offers, and the solutions that do are jaw-droppingly priced.

Starlink’s prices are at a level that a home user can easily afford. Starlink, which is also actively used in areas where natural disasters occur, has been on the world agenda due to the Russia-Ukraine war.

Musk was questioned earlier this year over reports that Starlink was being used by Russian forces in Ukraine. SpaceX responded that they had not taken any action that would violate US sanctions, i.e. no Starlink terminals were sold to Russia, but emphasized that the devices could have been obtained in other ways.
