The service will be provided through an artificial constellation, that is, a group on a small satellite moving in low orbit around the earth. The satellites will have transceivers on the ground. The size of satellites is compact as compared to other satellites providing internet, so we can expect higher speed and more consistent connectivity around the globe.
Some of these satellites will be booked for military, scientific and exploratory services. In Pakistan, the project of SpaceX is expected to provide internet in few cities including Islamabad, Lahore and Peshawar as per website data. Starlink is promising a spiking speed of 1Gbps near to almost 5G internet speeds and an average of 900 Mbps which is amazingly high as compared to other ISP’s.
