Starlink broadband for business is an increasingly popular choice, providing an affordable and highly reliable connection in the world’s most rural locations. SpaceX Starlink is the world’s most advanced broadband satellite internet. It is the first and largest satellite constellation to use low Earth orbit to deliver high speed-low latency broadband internet, be it on the go or in a residential or business environment.
The great thing about Starlink is its ability to provide unrivalled satellite internet speeds, at an affordable cost, and in locations where speeds are otherwise poor. Once installed, your Starlink will be able to withstand even the most unpredictable weather the UK has to offer, including extreme cold, heat, hail, sleet and gale force winds.
How does Starlink broadband work?
Starlink is a network of satellites that provide internet service to users on Earth. The network consists of thousands of small satellites in low Earth orbit (LEO) that are linked together to create a space-based internet service. Each satellite is connected to others via a radio frequency connection, allowing them to pass data back and forth. The satellites communicate with user terminals on the ground, which are connected to the internet, allowing users to access the internet anywhere in the world. This network of satellites provides high-speed, low-latency internet access to people in remote areas.
Starlink broadband for business
Ideal for business-critical operations that require 24/7 performance, this model offers higher gain antenna, additional throughput, and extreme weather performance. High-speed internet access can be used to enable businesses to increase their online presence and efficiency. Businesses can use the internet connection to access cloud applications, host video conferences, and share large files with remote teams.
Back-up and Disaster recovery
Starlink’s satellite network can be used to provide businesses with reliable and secure internet access during natural disasters, power outages, or other emergency events. This can enable businesses to maintain operations and ensure customer service continuity. Depending on the type of kit you have in situ, Starlink can also be used in conjunction with existing connectivity, for load balancing and QOS configurations.
From recent business installations, we have seen download speeds of up to 300Mbps compared to the 20Mbps they had been experiencing with a local provider. Depending on the nature of your business you can add as many Starlink units as required if operating from various locations and allow Microcomms to manage all from one centralised profile.
Microcomms can get you started
Starlink is available for maritime, Roam, office and home use. If you are interested in looking at implementing Starlink to replace your current slow/limited connection, we can visit your premises and setup our test kit to do some sample speed/stability tests at your site.
If your business could benefit from a Starlink connection, we can help. Simply get in touch and we’ll be more than happy to get you started.
Once we have the results from the speed/stability test and have explored the best location for the Starlink to be positioned, we will propose the most appropriate model that best meets your requirements.
The Starlink pricing structure is setup in the same way as BT residential and business broadband services: One cost for the hardware and setup/configuration, and a monthly cost for the subscription for the amount of data/speeds you require. The best part is that there are no long-term contracts!
