Starlink's median download speeds in the US dropped from 90.6Mbps to 62.5Mbps between the first and second quarters of 2022, according to Ookla speed tests. Starlink's median upload speeds in the US dropped from 9.3Mbps to 7.2Mbps in the same time frame.

Median latency also got a little worse for Starlink's US customers, rising from 43 ms to 48 ms. The latest numbers are in Ooka's Q2 2022 report on Starlink speeds around the world, released Tuesday. "Starlink speeds decreased in every country we surveyed over the past year as more users sign up for service," this week's report said. The Q1 report is available here.
