We will install your Starlink satellite dish and get you online

The South West was one of the first places in the world to have access to the new Starlink broadband internet service. The service was then expanded to cover the whole of the UK.

Starlink promises to transform the way rural areas connect to the internet with speeds of up to 350mbps download and 20mbps+ upload. Running a business from home or from any rural location will now be possible even in the most remote areas.

Due to the low-latency of a Starlink connection it is suitable for video calling systems like Zoom and FaceTime. It also works with WhatsApp, mobile WiFi calling and Digital Voice/VoIP providers. We have now installed over 500 Starlink systems and have had 100% positive customer satisfaction with the broadband connection.

2. Confirming your order – Please let us know when you have successfully placed an order for our records so we can book in your installation – you can either give us a ring on 01803 501711 or e-mail info@devoncomms.co.uk – typically we will book in your installation for two weeks of your Starlink order date.

The Starlink Version 2 ‘V2’ hardware does not have an ethernet port on the router and comes supplied with a WiFi only connection. You may require an ethernet port to connect your hardware to other networking equipment in your home or business. If this is the case, let us know and we able to supply this for you.

Depending on where your router is located, we may also need to help you install some additional networking equipment to get your internet connection to the right place.

The Starlink monthly service charge is £62.50+VAT (£75.00) and you are not tied into a long-term contract like many of the traditional telecoms providers. Once your new service is up and running you can cancel the broadband element of any existing fixed line services or the entire phone line rental agreement.

If you want to keep you landline number, have a look a look at our Digital Voice service – devoncomms.co.uk/digital-voice-voip/

Depending on where the dish needs to be mounted a longer cable may be required – the standard cable is 50ft – upgraded 75ft, and 150ft cables are available. Subject to availability, we normally carry these on our vans and they are chargeable upgrades.

We also install 5G and 4G broadband. Visit devoncomms.co.uk/4g-5g for more details.

Wireless Connections / WiFi

Starlink is so fast that the connection can be shared with multiple buildings or neighbours as long as you have a line-of-sight to the other location. This means that you can share the connection with other buildings at your location or share the initial Starlink hardware purchase and monthly charge with someone else.
Starlink delivers fantastic broadband speeds. However, as with all broadband connections, they tend to only include an entry level wireless access point with the included router. Ask us about our mesh wireless access points and UniFi network options if you want the very best WiFi connection available – you can also visit our website for more information – https://devoncomms.co.uk/wifi-installation-devon/

Can I use Starlink for online gaming and video streaming?2024-02-19T17:00:54+00:00

Yes, many users have reported that Starlink is suitable for online gaming and high-quality video streaming. The low latency and relatively high speeds make it well-suited for real-time applications like gaming and video conferencing.

How does Starlink achieve high speeds?2024-02-19T17:01:10+00:00

Starlink’s high speeds are attributed to several factors:

  • Low Earth Orbit (LEO): Starlink satellites operate in low Earth orbit, reducing the distance that data signals need to travel, which leads to lower latency and faster speeds.
  • Frequent Satellite Passes: With many satellites in the constellation, there’s a higher chance of a satellite being in range at any given time, resulting in more consistent and reliable speeds.
  • Advanced Technology: Starlink satellites use advanced phased-array antennas and laser communication to optimize data transmission, enabling faster and more efficient communication.
Is Starlink faster than traditional satellite internet?2024-02-19T17:01:16+00:00

Yes, Starlink is faster than traditional satellite internet. Traditional satellite internet has been known for high latency and relatively slow speeds due to the signal having to travel great distances between the Earth and geostationary satellites. Starlink’s low Earth orbit satellites significantly reduce this latency and provide faster speeds.

How fast is Starlink?2024-02-19T17:01:24+00:00

Starlink promises internet speeds that can range from 75 Mbps to 350 Mbps or more. Starlink aims to continually improve and upgrade its system to enhance the speed and overall performance.

What is Starlink?2024-02-19T17:01:30+00:00

Starlink is a satellite internet constellation being developed by SpaceX to provide high-speed, low-latency internet access to underserved and remote areas around the world. It consists of a network of thousands of small satellites orbiting the Earth.

What are the advantages of Starlink over traditional broadband?2024-02-19T17:01:39+00:00
  1. Blazing-Fast Speeds: Starlink’s low Earth orbit satellites reduce latency, delivering speeds comparable to or even exceeding traditional wired broadband connections. This is a game-changer for activities like video streaming, online gaming, and data-intensive work tasks.
  2. Reliability: Traditional internet services in rural areas are susceptible to outages due to weather conditions or infrastructure issues. Starlink’s satellite network is designed to provide a consistent connection, unaffected by terrestrial challenges.
  3. Total coverage: Whether you’re nestled in the heart of the rural South Hams or perched on a hillside above Slapton, Starlink’s satellites can reach you. This global coverage ensures that you’re never limited by your geographic location.
