SpaceX’s Starlink has been the desire of rural internet users around the world ever since its announcement a few years ago. Elon Musk and SpaceX have been innovative in every other area, so the expectations for Starlink were sky high.
Now in its beta phase, Starlink coverage is pretty small compared to what is projected for the future. The Starlink availability map of the United States is pretty spotty, but it’s expanding. Availability was originally reserved for northern parts of the US and Canada, but has been growing toward the south more and more.
Coverage has also expanded internationally. Originally only available in the US, Canada, and the UK, Starlink has now expanded to 11 more countries, including Australia, New Zealand, and several European countries.
To check Starlink availability in your location, visit the Starlink website and put in your address. You will get a few possible messages. One is that Starlink is available in your area and that you can sign up whenever you want. Another possible message is that Starlink is available in your area but is at capacity, meaning you’ll have to wait. A third message is that Starlink isn’t available where you live but will be available in the future.
Unless you live on the North or South Pole, you shouldn’t get a message that Starlink will never be available. Plans are to increase the number of satellites from the current 1,700 up to 42,000, which will mean global coverage. Almost every human being on earth will have the option of signing up for SpaceX’s Starlink.
