From CNET: SpaceX satellite internet venture Starlink is showing off new hardware this week, with the debut of a new, rectangular dish capable of receiving the company's internet signal orbiting overhead.
The dish arrives with FCC regulatory approval several months after SpaceX president Gwynne Shotwell explained that the company was working on lowering the steep production costs for its Starlink equipment, though the upfront cost to customers remains unchanged from $499. From there, Starlink satellite internet service costs $99 a month.
Currently available to all new orders fulfilled in the US, per Starlink's website, the new dish is smaller and lighter than the previous design, weighing in at 9.2 lbs. The company's shop offers a number of mounting options for rooftops, yards and home exteriors, though the dish is also designed to stand on its own legs for ground-level installation, or to support a quick setup for the purpose of testing the connection.
