It further states that availability is subject to regulatory approval and that orders will be taken on a first-come, first-served basis within each service region.According to SpaceX, Starlink now offers download speeds of 150 Mbps and upload speeds of 20 Mbps with a latency of less than 30 milliseconds. When further satellites are launched, Musk predicts that the download speed will double to around 300 Mbps. If Starlink’s claims are correct, Bangladesh could have their service by next year.
