Starlink Satellites :
Super-pumped by its beta test results that reached the speed of 100 Mbps SpaceX’s Starlink satellite system has promised to surpass the performance of the internet service provided by the current ground-bound technology.
Elon Musk has ramped up the lining of these Starlink satellites in Earth’s Low Orbit.
Recently, SpaceX launched 54 new satellites into the earth’s orbit onboard Falcon 9 on December 28.
The mission was launched from Space Launch Complex 40 (SLC-40) at Cape Canaveral Space Force Station, Florida.
These Starlink satellites are the first version of Starlink system upgradation. This deployment will add more users to the Starlink family.

The Space Company SpaceX’s Falcon 9, a reusable two-stage rocket’s 1st-stage booster has undertaken 10 successful space missions, having five Starlink missions, Ax-Z, GPS III Space Vehicle D4, GPS III Space Vehicle 05, Inspiration4, and Nilesat 301.
“Under our new license, we are now able to deploy satellites to new orbits that will add even more capacity to the network,” the company stated.
The addition of these upgraded Starlink satellites will amplify the system’s service-providing range and speed, especially to the already over-subscribed regions.
The company already has a fleet of about 3,500 first-gen Starlink sats orbiting the earth and is getting closer to providing complete and continuous smartphone coverage, by deploying 2000 more Gen 2 satellites by 2024.
Many reports claimed that if everything goes as per the plans, Starlink will be beaming its internet service to the user’s smartphones without the need for any special devices.
“Starlink will be able to provide voice, messaging, and basic web browsing at theoretical peak speeds of up to either 3.0 Mbps, or 7.2 Mbps peak upload, and up to either 4.4 Mbps or 18.3 Mbps on the downlink,” CNET reported.
