This particular Supercharger located at 2700 W 120th Street in Hawthorne, in the Target parking lot, has the latest Starlink rectangular dish attached to one of the station’s hardware. According to @JustStarman, download speeds tested using Speedtest.net were at a respectable 134.12 Mbps.

Last fall, Tesla CEO Elon Musk said all Superchargers would be getting their own Wi-Fi and many were spotted in the U.S. back in November and also in Canada one month later.
While Supercharging, free Wi-Fi means Tesla owners without Premium Connectivity plans can connect their vehicles and start streaming video in their cars. Customers can also connect their devices to free Wi-Fi as well to pass the time.
As of Q3 2022, Tesla had 4,283 Supercharger stations worldwide with 38,883 Supercharger connectors, increases of 32% and 33% year-over-year, respectively.
Tesla is set to announce its Q4 2022 earnings on January 25, 2023. The company will provide an update on its total Supercharger stations and connectors worldwide.
