In his Twitter account, the American businessman confirmed that, thanks to the lasers with which the Starlink satellites will be equipped, it will be possible to transfer data in an instant.

Elon Musk’s Starlink project, consisting of a constellation of satellites that will provide broadband Internet, could transfer data faster than fiber optics, reaching speeds close to that of light in a vacuum, without requiring stations in the Land, as revealed this week by the businessman himself.

In his Twitter account, the founder of Space X and Tesla confirmed that, thanks to the lasers, with which the Starlink satellites will be equipped, it will be possible to transfer data in an instant.

“Laser links alleviate the limitations of ground stations, so data can go from, for example, Sydney to London through space, which is roughly  40% faster  than the speed of light in fiber optics and a shorter path, “Musk wrote.

“Also, there is no need for ground stations everywhere. The Arctic will have great bandwidth!” The South African-born billionaire tweeted.

The Starlink project launched by SpaceX seeks to provide fast access to high-speed Internet throughout the planet in the future.
