For those who want to use Starlink’s low-Earth-orbiting satellite Internet service, SpaceX CEO Elon Musk has come up with a new, small and rectangular dish.

In comparison to the round dish that Starlink beta testers have been using for the last year, this is a thinner and lighter-weight choice.

To give broadband internet access to individuals on the ground in isolated and rural places, SpaceX plans to launch over 12,000 satellites into low Earth orbit, where the satellites will circle the Earth.

According to the study, the goal is to have a minimum of one satellite in the view over every part of the Earth at all times, ensuring near-continuous internet connectivity for the customers.

If you want to utilize the system, you’ll need to put a dish on the roof of your house where you can see the sky at all times.

Users in certain parts of the United States will be able to buy SpaceX‘s beginning kit, which includes mounting equipment, a 23-inch circular user terminal, a Wi-Fi router and the wires necessary to connect to the system.

The kit cost $499, and the monthly fee was $99 per month. For those who don’t want to spend a lot of money, there’s now a 12-inch broad and 19-inch long rectangular dish available.

Almost half the weight of the previous 16-pound dish, it weighs just 9.2 pounds. The cost of purchasing the rectangular option, on the other hand, seems to be unaffected.
