Possible Internet solution coming to Door County

Those struggling with little to no Internet coverage in Door County may soon have their prayers answered thanks to Elon Musk. Parts of Door County are already part of a beta testing launch of the satellite Internet service called Starlink. Developed by Musk’s SpaceX, Starlink uses thousands of satellites in low orbit around the planet to provide a high-speed Internet connection for users through their own units. The need for fast and reliable Internet in Door County has become a hotter topic since the pandemic started as adults were forced to work from home and students needed to learn through remote instruction.  Quantum PC owner Nathan Drager says some homeowners in the areas of West Jacksonport and Clark’s Lake have already seen great results from their beta testing. He believes it could be a game-changer, especially for areas with poor Internet coverage.

Right now the beta is only available to those living in the northern part of the United States and southern Canada. If there are no hiccups, Drager believes Starlink could have an even wider release later this spring.
