Starlink Software Update Will Aim To Fix Dish Overheating Issues Outlines Support Staff

• WCCF Tech

Space Exploration Technologies Corp.'s (SpaceX) Starlink satellite internet constellation continues to battle the intense heatwave currently sweeping across the Western United States. After a Reddit user in Arizona reported earlier this week that their user dish shut down after local temperature touched 122°F, Starlink customer service seemingly confirmed that this temperature is the upper limit for the terminal's performance.

Another user soon revealed that his terminal performed flawlessly even as the mercury touched 111°F, providing some hope for beta testers living in the hot regions. Now, another user from Arizona has shared his experience and outlined that the user terminal has survived a temperature of 120°F. However, in a strange twist of events, a user from Northern Arizona complains that his dish has stopped working at 110°F.
