Interested in Elon Musk’s internet? Much has been said about Starlink, the satellite internet service that the tycoon who owns Tesla and SpaceX will soon market in different countries.

Recently, the billionaire said through his Twitter account that this service will be about 40 percent faster than fiber and a shorter path, because “processing is not an issue.” He also added that there is “no need for ground stations everywhere,” and that the “Arctic will have great bandwidth! ”

In another message, the businessman explained that his satellites that will be launched in the coming months have laser links between satellites, so a local downlink is not needed.

Musk’s company has low-orbit satellites that offer high-speed connectivity and low latency, which means that download times are shorter. Starlink’s internet was designed to cover remote areas where traditional companies cannot easily reach.
