SpaceX imposes a fair usage quota for Starlink. The speed at which subscribers use more than 1 TB of data will decrease.
Elon Musk’s SpaceX company, which he owns, keeps launching new Starlink satellites as part of the initiative to provide the internet to every remote corner of the globe.
SpaceX, which provides limitless bandwidth to its Starlink satellite internet service clients, appears to have given up on this choice.
The speed of subscribers who use more than 1 TB will be slowed down.
The fair usage cap was originally disclosed by Starlink in an email it issued to residential subscribers in the United States and Canada.
Users will experience slower speeds for the remainder of the month if they use more than the 1 TB monthly use cap. On the other side, when the internet is not heavily used, speeds won’t be slowed down.
Due to the increase in the number of Starlink subscribers, there is a serious decrease in download and upload speeds. With its new usage quota feature, Starlink will ease the traffic and increase the speeds again.
