A satellite Internet constellation that is operated by Elon Musk’s SpaceX, Starlink now delivers high-speed Internet connectivity onboard the twin luxury yachts of SeaDream - SeaDream I and SeaDream II.

The news follows the decision of the FCC-Federal Communications Commission earlier this summer to authorize SpaceX "to provide satellite Internet to vehicles in motion."

In operation as part of SeaDream’s $10M renovation investment, Starlink is the world’s first and biggest satellite constellation using a low-Earth orbit that is capable of supporting high-bandwidth activities like video calls, video streaming, online gaming, and more. By placing the Starlink constellation in low-Earth orbit, SpaceX can already deliver faster Internet than other systems by decreasing the distance that information has to travel to reach users.
