In a groundbreaking move for the transportation industry, Brightline has partnered with Elon Musk’s Starlink to provide high-speed internet access to its entire fleet of passenger trains. This marks Starlink’s first entry into the railroad and passenger rail industry, following successful partnerships with Hawaiian Airlines, Royal Caribbean Group, and Carnival Corporation in the aviation and marine industries.
The partnership will allow all of Brightline’s passengers to access high-speed, low-latency internet, which is becoming increasingly essential in our modern age. Whether it’s finishing work during your commute, staying connected with friends and family, or simply streaming a movie, the partnership promises to provide seamless connectivity to even the most rural areas.
The move comes as Brightline prepares to open its Orlando Station this summer, connecting major city pairs including West Palm Beach, Boca Raton, Fort Lauderdale, Aventura, and Miami. With top speeds of 125 mph, Brightline is leading the way in the railroad industry and continues to be at the forefront of innovation.
“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,” said SpaceX Vice President of Starlink Commercial Sales Jonathan Hofeller. “As the first rail service in the world to adopt Starlink, Brightline continues to lead the way in the industry.”
This is an exciting development for both Brightline and Starlink, as they continue to push the boundaries of what is possible in their respective industries.
