SpaceX has launched its Starlink service into the maritime sector.

The service will offer high-speed, low-latency internet with up to 350 Mbps download while at sea.

Starlink Maritime is designed for merchant ships, yachts, oil rigs, and more to deliver connectivity from the most remote locations at sea. It is reportedly easy to install with a small footprint, minimal above deck space required, and an easy to install mount.

In addition, Starlink Maritime is being offered as a pay-as-you-go service, giving users the ability to pause and un-pause service at any time, and is billed in one month increments, allowing users to customise their service to their individual needs.
