SpaceX has launched pre-orders for its Starlink satellite internet service, allowing anyone to sign up and get on a waitlist, depending on location.
“Starlink is targeting coverage in your area in mid to late 2021. Availability is limited. Orders will be fulfilled on a first-come, first-served basis. You will receive a notification once your Starlink is ready to ship,” says Starlink’s website.
How to pre-order Starlink internet? Just visit Starlink.com, enter an email and then your service address.
You’ll be able to click ‘order now’ to get to the pre-order page, where a $99 USD deposit (or $129 CAD) is required. The checkout says you have 15 minutes to close your transaction.
Starlink costs $499 USD for the required hardware, then a $99 USD per month service fee. SpaceX is charging $50 USD for shipping and handling.
Right now, Starlink internet beta is only available in the U.S., Canada and the U.K. Earlier today, we reported more Starlink ground stations were detected, a sign the beta was set to expand, and now it appears that just may be the case.
SpaceX revealed last week it currently has 10,000 Starlink internet users. The company’s low-earth orbit satellite internet is targeting those in rural areas with high-speed internet–and soon possibly a phone service as well.
