Back in May, SpaceX launched 60 internet communications satellites into orbit.
The project hopes to “beam” high-speed internet service directly to consumers through these satellites.
These satellites are part of a project known as “Starlink.”
But how does it compare to 5G?
The consumer’s experience using a satellite internet service like Starlink will always be inferior to the experience accessing internet over 5G.
Because of delays.
Satellite internet services are for markets that have no internet service available at all or are underserved.
SpaceX’s Starlink project won’t threaten the rollout of the 5G wireless networks.
