Elon Musk’s Starlink Internet Goes Free For Flights (But There’s A Problem)

SpaceX has signed an agreement with Hawaiian Airlines to offer a high speed internet service in volor by using its satellites Starlink. However they were found some problems. Let’s find out all the details together.

The Starlink Internet is available at high speed

A few days ago SpaceX he also signed an agreement with the Texan JSXwhich operates a fleet of approx 100 semi-private charter aircraft; Delta Airlines instead confirmed in April that it had tested satellite internet hardware of Starlink on an “exploratory” basis aboard his own passenger aircraft.

Interestingly, the first Tesla service customer will offer the advantages of Starlink internet for free. The head of Hawaiian Airlines, Peter Ingramhe has declared:

Our guests can expect fast, seamless, and free Wi-Fi to complement our award-winning hospitality aboard Hawaii.

The company did not reveal any details, not even the maximum speeds that passengers can expect, or whether there will be any limit to the consumption of data. The internet a Starlink’s low latency broadband will initially be available on the aircraft fleet Airbus A330 e A321neo of Hawaiian Airlines, as well as the next ones Boeing 787-9.

The airline will put Starlink hardware on that flights operate across the continental United States, Asia e Oceania. Passengers will not have to go through annoying payment portals or registration pages to connect their devices with the Starlink Wi-Fi network in flight. However it will take a bit ‘of time before passengers can experience Starlink’s satellite internet aboard their next Hawaiian Airlines flight.

Long wait with a long distance warning

Both companies are currently in theirs initial stages of implementation and the Starlink satellite receiver will start appearing on selected vehicles of Hawaiian Airlines only in 2023. Starlink satellite internet will be available only on long-distance flightsas the company has excluded its fleet of Boeing 717 aircraft that ferry passengers between the Hawaiian Islands.

However, the company promises that Starlink’s in-flight internet service will be fast enough for video streaming and the playing multi-player games. Whether it will be capable of streaming the cloud-based games.

As for SpaceX, the company is leveraging its ret mesh laser formed by Starlink satellites that broadcast the internet. This internet service competes against Gogo e ViaSattwo actors who currently dominate the segment of in-flight Wi-Fi service providers.

However, Musk’s invention already has some critical advantages. Starlink satellites are positioned in orbits lower and offer one denser networkwhich means your internet speed will be highest with minimal interruptions when flying across continents.

In addition, SpaceX offers ainternal infrastructure and extremely reliable of vehicles they can send more satellites in orbit at any time, a luxury that rivals they do not have available.

Since SpaceX announced plans to offer in-flight Wi-Fi services to airline customers in 2021, the company has modified its antenna hardware for a wide range of aircraft. While bandwidth remains a mystery, Elon Musk promised connectivity of mezzo gigabit in a tweet he posted in 2021.
