SpaceX, the private US space company headed by Elon Musk, has been busy sending thousands of low-orbit satellites in the space. Their aim is to send at least 12,000 such low-orbit satellites in the orbit around the Earth. The main purpose of these low-orbit satellites is to provide high speed internet connection at any point on the surface of this planet. This satellite internet connection service, Starlink, is already available in many countries all over the world.
As more and more of these low-orbit Starlink satellites are launched, Starlink services will be available in more regions of the world. If you want to order Starlink kit as soon as possible, then you have to act soon. By pre-ordering your kit now, you will be put in a queue ahead of the others.
Here is how you can quickly order your own Starlink kit:
- Visit https://www.starlink.com/ in your web browser.
- Enter your address and click on Order Now button.
- If your location is supported by Starlink, it will take you to the payment page where you have to pay $99. It will also show you when your area will be covered by Starlink. Order must be completed within 15 minutes.
- When Starlink is available in your location, you will have to pay a total of $499 for the kit along with the shipping fees.
Ensure that you print the deposit information for later. You will have to use the same email address for your Starlink account as the one entered on the initial deposit page.

When you receive the Starlink kit, it will arrive in a large box containing one satellite dish, one tripod stand to support the dish antenna, cables, PoE (power over Ethernet) adapter, and WiFi. It comes with a very long Ethernet cable that is used both for data transfer from the dish antenna and to power it.
