According to a recent report from Starlink users, speeds on SpaceX’s Starlink internet service have started to pick up again. After hovering around the 311 Mbps mark for a few hours, many users are now averaging download speeds of 280 Mbps. This is good news for SpaceX, as users continue to blaze past the 280 Mbps mark.
This uptick in speed is likely due to more satellites now being in orbit. With more satellites comes more capacity, meaning users can get faster speeds. In addition, SpaceX has been busy making improvements to its ground infrastructure. This includes expanding its network of teleport stations and building new satellite gateways.
