Starlink is now accepting pre-orders for its satellite internet from Germany and plans to make its service available in Germany by mid to late 2021. For a good three months now, the space company SpaceX's project has been in the “better than nothing” test, in which around 10,000 customers from the north of the USA, southern Canada and Great Britain were able to try out the service.

The idea at Starlink: Instead of relying on the expensive expansion of cables and radio masts, the high-speed Internet is to come to customers via satellites in orbit. SpaceX and Tesla CEO Elon Musk's vision is to give the whole world access to high-speed internet.

Two million members use the clubhouse per week

 Two million members use the clubhouse per week How big is the clubhouse? Co-founder and CEO Paul Davison puts the weekly active users at two million. The number of registered users could be three times as large, show unofficial analyzes. © Photo: William Krause / Unsplash Clubhouse is growing exponentially. But how strong, one can only guess. Is clubhouse still a niche or already a mass medium? A look at the number of users available reveals this.

The cost of the service is € 99 per month and a one-time fee of € 499 for a hardware kit which, in addition to the terminal for connecting to the Starlink satellites, also includes a tripod and a WiFi router. This fee had to be paid during the beta test. In the UK, that means £ 439 for the kit and £ 89 subscription fee for a maximum of 150 megabits per second (Mbps). That's expensive considering some UK providers can deliver speeds up to

516Mbps for £ 79 a month on .

Philip Hall, from rural Devon, southwest England told Business Insider that he was one of the first people in the UK to receive the Starlink kit and test the internet connection. The place where Hall lives has very poor internet connections, making it extremely difficult to run a business and connect with family. Despite occasional disconnections and the limited range of the router, Starlink is "a hope and a prayer" for him.

Bill Gates: Billionaire

That luxury property is likely to be home to his extensive Porsche collection, which Gates doesn't normally brag about - another luxury he owns and has invested several million in.
