Türkiye hopes for SpaceX Starlink postponed to 2025

SpaceX’s Internet service via satellite, Starlink, has once again postponed the date planned to be put into service in Turkey. According to the latest update on the company’s official coverage map, the year 2025 is now marked as the start of service for Starlink Türkiye. It was previously reported that Turkey would be included in the Starlink coverage area in 2024, but with the latest update, this date has been postponed by one year.

Starlink’s small antenna carries big claims

Satellite internet service Starlink makes a name for itself not only with its wide coverage area but also with the innovative products it develops. The small-sized antenna mentioned by Elon Musk represents the last point reached by modern technology. This portable antenna stands out because it can be easily carried, especially in standard backpacks. According to Musk’s claim, the installation of the antenna takes less than 5 minutes and can be ready for use.

Another important point that Musk makes is that this small antenna costs about half as much as standard antennas and still has the capacity to watch multiple 4K videos at the same time without any problems. Offering 100 Mbps download and 11.5 Mbps upload speeds, the antenna promises significant ease of use with its 23 ms latency and WiFi support.

Although the postponement of SpaceX Starlink’s Turkey adventure has been disappointing for users expecting high-speed internet access, the meticulous work and innovative technologies of Elon Musk and his team before offering this service can be considered a harbinger of a promising future. Starlink’s potential users in Turkey may be hopeful about the expansion of the global internet network and the opportunities that technological innovations will bring.

With its mission of facilitating global internet access, Starlink aims to provide high-speed internet service even to rural areas and areas with difficult internet access. With the launch of this service within Starlink Turkey, it is expected that the current limitations on internet access will be overcome and the technology will become accessible to a wider audience. However, it seems that we need to wait a little longer to achieve this goal.
