More Satellite Based Broadband Tests

Further competition in Sat based broadband,  here from SpaceX Starlink.   Early data speeds from Beta tests.

SpaceX Starlink speeds revealed as beta users get downloads of 11 to 60Mbps   By Jon Brodkin in ArsTechnica

Beta users of SpaceX's Starlink satellite-broadband service are getting download speeds ranging from 11Mbps to 60Mbps, according to tests conducted using Ookla's speedtest.net tool. Speed tests showed upload speeds ranging from 5Mbps to 18Mbps.

Details on SpaceX Starlink beta emerge along with photos of user terminals
The same tests, conducted over the past two weeks, showed latencies or ping rates ranging from 31ms to 94ms. This isn't a comprehensive study of Starlink speeds and latency, so it's not clear whether this is what Internet users should expect once Starlink satellites are fully deployed and the service reaches commercial availability. We asked SpaceX several questions about the speed-test results yesterday and will update this article if we get answers.  ..... "
