Tesla has started expanding its SpaceX Starlink internet to its Superchargers in Canada.

According to Tommy F (@Tommyf902), based in British Columbia’s Lower Mainland, he was able to test out the Starlink Wi-Fi at the Tesla Supercharger in Surrey.

Tommy F pointed out to Tesla North Starlink service “can only be accessible by a Tesla and automatically connect to the Wi-Fi when within range.” This means you can’t connect your other devices to Starlink internet, but only your car.

Parked three charging stalls away from the Starlink dish, Tommy F took the time to perform some speed tests using Ookla’s Speedtest.net.

Download speeds ranged from 21.28 Mbps as seen above, while other tests saw speeds of 8.98 Mbps download and 1.28 Mbps download using Google. Speeds vary based on the positions of Starlink satellites in orbit, plus the number of other Tesla vehicles parked at the Supercharger and connected to the Wi-Fi as well.

At the time, Tommy notes there were 11 Tesla vehicles parked at the Supercharger, but not all of them may have been connected to Starlink.

Earlier this month, Tesla started installing Starlink at Superchargers in the United States, including at one location in Lake City, Florida. While Starlink is being expanded to Superchargers in the U.S. and Canada at the moment, it won’t be coming to China, however.
