Elon Musk’s STARLINK PROJECT: Ready to Roll Out in the PH by Q4 of 2022

Innovations and recent developments are the top priority of the man behind the global fame of Electric Autos (Tesla), Private Space Company, Paypal, and most recently, Twitter and also a rapid investor in other tech-based firms; Elon Musk – one of the world tycoons has also immersed himself in the internet market, particularly in Starlink.

The Philippine administrators and its sectors have marked the agreement as approved for Starlink’s rollout in the country before the end of the year. Across different countries in Southeast Asia, the Philippines will be the first country to avail the said Starlink broadband services. With this, it will greatly aid underserved remote rural areas by having a low-latency internet with 100 Megabits per second to 200 Mbps, which offers no lag or delays at all. Musks’ Starlink main targets are the disadvantaged areas, it will be seamlessly possible since it will work by sending data via radio signals to space instead of the typical method of providing internet connectivity through cables and optical fibers. The promising effect of this innovation in connectivity will provide sufficient and stable connections since it is in low orbit and much closer to the planet.

For over a long period, Filipinos have always aspired for smooth internet connections, and historically, we bear the record of the slowest yet most expensive internet rates across the globe. With this, Starlink is indeed an answered dream; hence, the project itself is not a whole brand new proposal; and we have seen its promise a million times through the different ISPs in the country. Nevertheless, the idea of transforming and stepping up the connectivity in rural and far-flung unreached places makes this project distinctive. According to News and Astronomy’s website, Space Satellites located 22,236 miles above the Earth will beam out and provide internet service in the country.

Musk predicted that there would be possible delays in the delivery speed and designed dishes programmed to swiftly and conveniently transfer enormous volumes of data and information to any location on Earth. This innovation can travel and delve even over the deepest oceans and into extremely distant communities.

The foreseeable Future of Internet Connectivity

The plethora of challenges we face in terms of connection is massive. However, Starlink’s promise of excellent and high-speed service in the country is one of the things that can lessen its connectivity problems. Once this project rolls out, the current digital landscape of the Philippines will improve, and fiber connections will no longer be the only option for fast-speed internet; hence it is already a means of accessibility to pursue all the things that will contribute to the growth and development of not only the country but also its people.
