Study Shows Over Half of American Internet Users Want to Switch to Starlink

While most people generally tend to think that every single person in America has easy access to internet, with all of that having been said and now out of the way it is important to note that this is only true if you look at urban locales within the US. If you move away from large cities it would become a lot less likely that the people you encounter would have access to ready internet connections that would provide internet access in an uninterrupted manner.

Elon Musk seems to be relying on the discontent of these internet users because of the fact that this is the sort of thing that could potentially end up improving the chances that his Starlink satellite internet service would end up becoming as successful as he would like it to be. In fact, a recent survey has indicated that over half of Americans that use the internet on a regular basis seem to be on board when it comes to satellite internet and the like, making it rather likely that Starlink would change the game and give regular internet service providers quite a bit of competition all in all.

There are a lot of things that make Starlink a viable option for people, with the most pertinent being that it would provide consistent internet access regardless of how you are from population clusters since the internet is being provided through satellite signals rather than through cables. Another thing that makes Starlink a great option is that if you look at it on a per mb/s basis, it actually comes out cheaper. Average ISPs charge about $65 per month for around 57 mb/s on average, coming up to around $1.13 per mb/s per month.

Starlink, on the other hand, as per Reviews, will offer 100 mb/s at $99 per month, bringing the cost per mb/s down to $0.93. Hence, while some people might be paying a bit more per month, they would be getting significantly faster internet which is another thing that would make Starlink popular in the near future.

When Starlink finally gets rolled out for general consumers, it will prove to be a huge litmus test for the future. If the rollout occurs properly then people will end up experiencing a lot of benefits and ISPs as we know them right now might start to die out unless they improve the services they can provide.
