The mobile phone will get satellite internet

Elon Musk's Starlink, a satellite-based internet service provider, has been providing services through routers with special antennas. Now the company will provide internet service directly on mobile phones. Starlink has announced the launch of satellite internet on the phones of the mobile phone manufacturer T-Mobile. T-Mobile's users can use Starlink's high-speed 5G internet without a router with an antenna.

Elon Musk is going to release the technology of connecting the mobile phone with the artificial satellite or satellite in the earth's orbit to the rest of the world.

This satellite connected mobile phone is the latest addition to Elon Musk's collection of surprises, which often surprises people with his latest innovations and inventions.

For now, this mobile phone satellite service will be launched in the United States. The space technology company SpaceX owned by Elon Musk is going to bring this service to the market jointly with the US mobile service provider T-Mobile. T-Mobile's customers will get with this service with the help of SpaceX's Starlink satellite.

On Thursday, August 25, Elon Musk and T-Mobile President Mike Sievert announced the launch of a satellite-based mobile phone service at an event held at SpaceX's launch center in Texas, USA.

According to their announcement, T-Mobile will provide satellite mobile phones to its customers in the United States with the help of Elon Musk-owned SpaceX's Starlink satellite. Through this, T-Mobile customers can directly communicate with other customers with the help of SpaceX's satellites in Earth's orbit through their mobile phones.

As a result, T mobile users can easily keep in touch with the rest of the world, even from remote or sparsely populated areas such as the sea or the desert.

The most convenient thing about this technology is that customers don't have to buy any additional device to get this service. Current technology, mobile phone or smartphone, is enough for this communication. For now, only text messages and pictures can be sent in this technology. However, very soon, customers will get the facility of direct video call through Starlink's second generation satellite.

In this regard, Elon Musk said that Starlink's second generation satellites can be used to talk directly to mobile phones. You can contact directly through the phone currently in hand. However, at present, such bandwidth is not yet connected to Starlink's terminals. Still, it can be used to send text messages and pictures. Even short video messages can be sent if the network is not congested. That means there is no more dead zone in the world for your mobile phone.

Elon Musk said that very soon SpaceX is going to launch the next generation Starlink satellites through the next generation Starship rocket. A large antenna will be attached to this satellite. Which can directly connect the mobile phones on the T-Mobile network. As a result, it will be possible to make direct video calls easily from there. Tesla's electric car will also be connected to a SpaceX satellite. Basically, it will be very useful to stay in touch in areas where there is no mobile phone network coverage.

Musk founded SpaceX's Starlink with the aim of providing high-speed internet services to users in remote areas beyond the reach of conventional mobile networks. The company has placed about 3,000 artificial satellites in low Earth orbit in space.

Starlink's satellites will use T-Mobile's midland spectrum as a network. With this technology, there is literally no place outside the network in the United States. It is believed that this technology will spread all over the world very soon. This technology could also make the traditional satellite phone concept obsolete.
