Starlink Ground Station Locations: An Overview

Starlink, to deliver internet connectivity to its users, relies on a system of ground stations called gateways. These gateways act as an interlink between the user’s dish and the satellites roaming earth’s low orbit.

Consequently, the dish will connect to the nearest satellite, which in turn sends that signal to the closest gateway. Gateways, therefore, need to be in somewhat close distance (500 miles or 1,000 kilometers) to receive that signal.

However, in recent times, Starlink has started to decrease its dependence on gateways. Its newer generation satellites, namely versions 1.5 and 2.0, rely on satellite-to-satellite laser communication.

With that being said, here’s a quick overview of all the current and future gateway locations Starlink operates (all the credit goes to Twitter user Nathan Owens who you should give a follow here):

How Many Starlink Ground Station Are There?

There are currently 150 operational Starlink gateways. Another 13 remain in construction after receiving regulatory approval. Lastly, another 19 sites are pending, with construction waiting to start.
