SpaceX has unveiled its third-generation Wi-Fi router for Starlink. A few chosen customers have received emails offering them a chance to test the new router for $200, according to several individuals who received the invitation.
The new router introduces support for Wifi 6 and tri-band functionality for Starlink, enhancing range, performance, and device support. The router can replace the current one, and multiple Gen 3 routers can be linked to extend the Wi-Fi network’s coverage. The router also features two additional Ethernet ports for connecting to wired mesh systems, TVs, computers, and other devices.
It remains to be seen when the new router will become available to more Starlink users and whether the price will remain at $200.
