Starlink aims to provide high average speeds around 1Gb/s with latency ranging from 20ms to 40ms. The current average speed of Starlink Internet is around 50Mb/s to 150Mb/s.


Starlink users currently see data speeds vary from 50Mb/s to 150Mb/s and latency from 20ms to 40ms in most locations. As we launch more satellites, install more ground stations and improve our networking software, data speed, latency and uptime will improve dramatically.
