SpaceX’s Starlink satellite ISP is poised to make a big difference in rural America, according to exclusive Ookla Speedtest data shared with PCMag. Starlink is currently in a semi-public beta, serving more than 10,000 users at speeds up to 170Mbps, with no data caps, according to beta testers.
Ookla located US counties with at least 30 Starlink samples since December, and charted Starlink’s speeds county by county against all other fixed internet providers. Our own analysis shows that Starlink will make the biggest difference in rural, low-density, low-population counties with few options other than lower-quality satellite services.
