The Lord Howe Island Museum now has the fastest, most reliable public internet service on the island.

A unique combination of Starlink and NBN connections is utilised, so that if one drops out the other provides an instantaneous connection backup.

The Starlink system is a satellite internet constellation operated by SpaceX, providing satellite Internet access coverage to 40 countries. As of September 2022, Starlink consisted of over 3,000 mass produced small satellites in low earth orbit which communicate with designated ground transceivers. It is planned to eventually deploy 12,000 satellites.

Visitors to the island can purchase a ticket to allow access to this internet service 24 hours a day within the museum environs.
