Brightline Implements SpaceX’s Starlink Wi-Fi Service

Brightline has become the first passenger rail service in the world to offer Starlink’s high-speed, low-latency broadband service on its trains.

The train operator has partnered with Starlink, which is engineered and operated by SpaceX to provide internet connectivity for its passengers.

Starlink will be available on Brightline’s fleet of trains in South Florida operating between Miami and West Palm Beach.

This service will also soon include the new five-train fleet providing an extension to Orlando.

The implementation of Starlink is part of Brightline’s digital transformation which focuses on a passenger-first experience. The service will be complementary for all Brightline passengers.

Kevin T. McAuliffe, Chief Technology & Digital Innovation Officer at Brightline said:

“Brightline will be the first train sets in the world to use the Starlink system. This really speaks to what we represent - an innovative passenger rail provider paving the way for high-speed rail in the US. Brightline is working with some of the best tech teams around the globe and our partnership with Starlink will elevate our brand to the stars.”

Starlink provides high-speed, low-latency internet using a constellation of satellites operating in a low orbit around the Earth.

This system is supposed to provide a more seamless connection compared to traditional satellite internet services.

SpaceX Vice President of Starlink Commercial Sales Jonathan Hofeller said:

“As the first rail service in the world to adopt Starlink, Brightline continues to lead the way in the industry. We’re excited to work with Brightline and provide Starlink to their entire fleet, which will enable all of Brightline’s passengers to access high-speed, low-latency internet that is critical in our modern age – whether you’re finishing up work during your commute, staying connected with friends and family, or simply streaming a movie.”
