Starlink is definitely the highest-profile (and possibly highest-performing) satellite internet provider currently available. But there aren’t many satellite providers to begin with, so the market remains expensive and speeds relatively slow. That’s why we’re excited to see a fourth competitor enter the fray: Project Kuiper.
Project Kuiper is Amazon’s satellite internet service, which it plans to make available to initial customers sometime in late 2024. The service is looking really promising so far, with some impressive satellite and antenna technology and a focus on sustainability and global access.
In this article, we’ll compare what we know about Project Kuiper with Starlink and see how the two stack up.
Since Project Kuiper is not yet available, we won’t recommend a winner in each section—at least for now. Once the service rolls out and we can see real performance metrics, we’ll be able to offer more concrete advice.
