Reports indicate that the launch of the Starlink service with laser satellites will reduce latency and dependence on ground stations. The provision of laser service has started in Canada, Australia, Alaska and Antarctica, and it brings various benefits such as increasing the quality of communication and service in more remote areas.
Since the launch of Starlink Internet in 2020, SpaceX has become one of the main players in this market. Starlink has always sought to develop its network. This company has now started using laser satellites, which partially eliminates the need for ground stations. Additionally, this new service can reduce latency as it reroutes data.
Today’s report is based on an email from a SpaceX representative to a user in Canada. This email shows that the company has started covering remote areas using its laser satellites. SpaceX has been regularly launching these satellites for some time and considers them to be a more optimized version of the previous generation satellites. Reddit users have also reported receiving similar emails in Alaska and Antarctica.
Starlink service with laser satellites
Starlink has updated the internet service coverage map on its website. With laser satellite, Starlink service is provided in the most remote places.
Most parts of Europe, part of South America, Japan and Australia are covered by this service. Svalbard Norway is also covered as one of the most remote areas in the world.
Elon Musk’s company plans to bring its satellite internet to countries such as Saudi Arabia, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Turkmenistan, Egypt and the Bahamas next year.
