Starman boosts top-end download speeds to 200Mbps

28 Aug 2013

Estonian cableco Starman has announced an increase to the maximum downstream speeds on offer, revealing that it can now provide customers with rates of up to 200Mbps. The new top-end speed is available to both new and existing subscribers to its ‘XL’ tariff, which previously offered a downlink connection at 150Mbps; upload speeds have also been increased, rising from 10Mbps to 20Mbps. Meanwhile, alongside the new headline rate Starman has also confirmed an increase in speeds on its other plans. To that end, customers taking the cable operator’s lowest-cost service, ‘S’, will see downstream/upstream speeds increase to 2Mbps/512kbps, up from 1Mbps/256kbps, while those signed up to the ‘M’ plan will also see rates double to 10Mbps/2Mbps. Rounding out the tariffs, Starman’s ‘L’ plan will now offer down/up speeds of 60Mbps/10Mbps, compared with the 40Mbps/4Mbps it previously advertised. The operator has, however, noted that existing customers will need to request the higher speeds, though new customers will receive them automatically.
