Amazon Plans To Offer Home Internet

The FCC has just given Amazon permission to launch satellites to begin to offer Home Internet service. The company plans to launch 3,000 satellites into low-earth orbit. The FCC has given Amazon a deadline of getting at least 1,600 satellites in orbit by mid-2026. 

It will be interesting to see how much people will have to pay for Amazon’s home internet. Starlink has a similar satellite internet service and is cost at least $100+ per month. The speed of the internet will also be interesting to see. The speed of all types of the internet varies, but satellite internet has come a long way. I would not be surprised if Amazon’s home internet offers 80 to 100 Mbps down and 8 to 10 Mbps up.
