Why is my Starlink internet speed slower than advertised?

Like most internet providers, Starlink’s advertised speeds represent maximum speeds the internet connection is capable of, but not necessarily the speeds you should expect to receive consistently. Satellite Internet is particularly vulnerable to environmental factors like weather and physical obstructions, however, most of Starlink’s speed issues have to do with network congestion. As Starlink has begun providing internet service for more and more customers across the country, it has struggled to launch enough satellites to keep up with its rapidly growing user base. As such speeds began to drop rapidly after it left its closed beta and began accepting new customers.

About our Starlink internet speed test

The Starlink internet speed measures three things:

Download speed: The speed at which your device pulls data from the internet. Usually measured in Mbps or Gbps.

Upload speed: The speed at which your device sends data to the internet. Usually measured in Mbps or Gbps.

Latency (Ping): The time (measured in milliseconds) it takes for a signal to travel from your device to an internet server and back. Lower latency means your connection has a better response time for activities like gaming and livestreams.

How does the Starlink internet speed test work?

The speed test connects to our test server and sends data files over your connection. By measuring how long it takes for these files to travel from your device, to the satellite, to our server, and back again, We can learn a lot about the speed and performance of your connection.

To get the most accurate reading of your connection, plug your device directly into your router using an ethernet cable, rather than connecting over Wi-Fi.
