Over half a million people have already signed up for Starlink satellite internet but there are currently less than 70,000 active users. That puts the vast majority on a waiting list. Starlink started their public beta testing phase in October 2020 and since then the waiting list has been growing constantly. At the moment, Starlink has launched only 1,500 of their projected 42,000 satellites and is offering services to limited areas in the US, Canada, and the UK. As satellites are launched, coverage will increase, and those on the waiting list will have to wait no longer.
In the meantime, how long will you have to wait? It depends on where you live. If you live in an area that is currently offering Starlink satellite service, you could have your Starlink internet up and running in a few weeks. The official numbers are somewhere between 2 and 8 weeks to get your equipment in the mail. But if you live in an area that doesn’t offer Starlink services yet, your wait could be much longer. If you are interested in Starlink satellite internet, it is still a good idea to sign up. On the Starlink website, you can type in your address and they will tell you when your area is projected to receive service. If you are in the United States, it is likely to be very soon. If you are outside the US, your wait could be longer. However, Starlink is increasing coverage constantly, so it’s only a matter of time before it reaches you.
