Starlink triples its internet traffic amid geopolitical tensions

Posted by in categories: internet, satellites

Starlink has around 5,000 satellites in orbit, far more than any other provider.

According to Cloudflare, Starlink’s internet traffic has nearly tripled in 2023 compared to 2022. In the US, the traffic has grown by 250%, while in Brazil, where Starlink launched last year, the traffic has surged by 1700%.

Bridging the divide, one satellite at a time

Imagine blazing fiber-optic speeds delivered not by cables but by a twinkling swarm of satellites in the sky. That’s the reach of Starlink, and it’s captivated over 50 countries, from Brazil’s staggering 17-fold traffic surge to Kenya’s newfound online access and countries like the Philippines, and Zambia. This exponential growth has cemented Starlink’s position as the undisputed king of satellite internet.
