SpaceX’s satellite-based internet provider Starlink will double in speed “later this year” according to a tweet by Elon Musk. The tweet was posted as a reply to someone who just received their Starlink beta kit.

The company promises speeds between 50 to 150 Mbps. Musk specifically called out a 300 Mbps goal in his tweet.

Though 300 Mbps isn’t unheard-of speed, it is much faster than many people currently have access to. This is especially in the low-to-medium population density areas that Musk talks about targeting in a second tweet.

In the reply, Elon also tells the person that their latency should improve to around 20ms as well. In the speed test screenshots, their latency was at 34 and 44ms respectively, while Starlink’s website says to expect between 20 and 40ms during the beta.
