What is Starlink, how it works?
Starlink is a SpaceX enterprise that depends on more than 1,000 satellites that the company has already placed in Earth’s orbit.
These geostationary satellites are up to 60 times closer to Earth than the conventional satellites. The goal is to make it a nearly 12,000-satellite network so that consumers can access high-speed satellite internet.
satellite internet is faster than fibre-based internet. Starlink’s satellites beam down the internet to the antenna of each connection.
