Furthermore, Starlink uses a low earth orbit to provide the greatest internet services in the world. Starlink is a constellation of hundreds of satellites that circle the planet at a much closer distance, 550 kilometres.

The primary goal of Starlink is to achieve minimal latency, which will permit edge computing on Earth. Each satellite in the Starlink constellation, on the other hand, weighs 573 pounds and has a flat body. As a result, one Space Falcon 9 rocket may carry up to 60 satellites. Starlink is based on a satellite internet service technology that has been around for a long time. Starlink transmits signals via radio frequencies rather than fibre optics.
