The Malaysian government, led by Prime Minister Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim, has ordered 40 Starlink units from Elon Musk's companies, Tesla and SpaceX. 


Starlink is known for providing fast internet in areas without proper internet infrastructure or optical cables. Recently, an early user of Starlink in Sabah shared on TikTok about the impressive capabilities of the service.

Despite not receiving government assistance, he started using Starlink in 2021 and experienced internet speeds of up to 141Mbps for downloads and around 27Mbps for uploads. 


Although not as fast as fibre internet, Starlink became the preferred choice for this user as the area lacked Unifi support.

However, he mentioned that during rainy weather, the internet speed decreased slightly to 118Mbps due to the direct connection to satellites. This TikTok sharing caught the attention of netizens who are excited about Starlink's potential. 


Additionally, the man revealed that Starlink can cater to up to 128 simultaneous users in an area of 182 square meters. It appears that Starlink could be a valuable short-term solution to provide internet access to local residents, particularly in regions without an optical cable network.
