Spacex Tests Starlink Satellite Internet Service In Southern Jordan


(MENAFN- Jordan News Agency)


Amman, Oct. 31 (Petra) -- American aerospace company SpaceX has tested its flagship satellite internet service, Starlink, in southern Jordan, and recorded download speeds of 100 to 200 Mbps, according to a statement released Monday by the Jordan Telecommunications Regulatory Commission (TRC).
According to TRC, this is the first test of its kind for the American company in the Middle East, where the Starlink service is still unavailable.
This satellite Internet service is currently available in the United States, Canada, much of Europe, Australia, Japan, and parts of South America, according to an interactive map of the world on the Starlink website.
TRC added that it welcomes conducting technical tests of telecommunication services in sparsely populated, remote areas where the Internet and communications are currently not available.
SpaceX started launching Starlink satellites in 2019. As of September 2022, Starlink consists of over 3,000 mass-produced small satellites in low Earth orbit, which communicate with designated ground transceivers.
