Starlink is a satellite network from the U.S. space company SpaceX for providing Internet anywhere in the world. The network is especially suitable for areas where Internet access via a fixed connection is not available and mobile connections are unattractive due to range. Also, Starlink can perfectly serve as a backup connection to ensure continuity of Internet access for when the standard Internet connection fails.
How does Starlink work?
The network consists of satellites orbiting the earth to deliver broadband Internet worldwide. Currently, nearly 2,000 satellites already provide worldwide coverage. The satellite transmits Internet access to Earth where it is received on the ground through a dish. To access the network, SpaceX has several subscriptions

To receive the Internet from the satellite, you need a hardware dish. You set up the satellite dish in location, then it receives the Internet signal and transmits the bandwidth to your router.
Where is Starlink available?
Starlink was developed to provide coverage to areas of the earth where supplying connectivity is a challenge. Today, Starlink is available in 32 countries around the world. In most of Europe and North America, as well as parts of South America, Australia and New Zealand. SpaceX shares the availability of their services in a coverage map. The company expects internet availability for the rest of the world by the end of 2023. For the Netherlands, Starlink Internet will not be a necessary tool for organizations because there is already good coverage of wired Internet and good and fast 4G/5G networks.
