SpaceX’s Starlink V2 will connect to remote area mobile phones by next year. The mobile phones will connect to satellites and provide 1-4 megabits per second across the coverage area.
Mobile phones in remote areas will be connected with SpaceX satellites by next year. SpaceX founder Elon Musk and CEO of T-Mobile Mike Sievert have made the big announcement. Both companies will be creating a new network to provide the service. Starlink’s satellites will broadcast it using a mid-band spectrum from T-mobile throughout the nation. T-Mobile said this service would provide coverage wherever you can see the sky.
Starlink V2 will allow people to send MMS, text, and some messaging apps when they have sky’s clear view. Select areas will have the beta version launched next year. Sievert said this is a groundbreaking alliance. He said two industry-shaking innovators are challenging the antique ways. They are adopting modern ways to connect with customers and scaring away the competition.
When is the Launch?
Elon Musk said that Starlink V2 will launch next year and eliminate dead zones worldwide by transmitting directly to mobiles. The connectivity will be 2-4 megabits for one zone. He tweeted it would be great for voice calls and texts but not for high bandwidth.
Elon Musk also said he would use the new tech for his electric vehicle, Tesla, for premium connectivity.
Most smartphones on the network of T-Mobile will be new-service compatible using their devices’ old radio. Musk said that dead zones would no longer exist with this new technology anywhere on Earth. This would be groundbreaking, as it seems.
