The standard model of the Amazon dish, whose design was shown in 2020, has a square appearance that measures less than 11 inches (half a meter) and is one inch (2.5 cm) thick. The device weighs less than five pounds (2.5 kg), not including the mounting bracket. The standard dish of the Kuiper project can provide a speed of up to 400 megabits per second. Amazon hopes to produce the dish for around $400.

In addition to this standard model, Amazon also has a more compact dish that weighs only one pound (0.45 kg). Amazon says the dish is its “smallest and most cost-effective” device yet, and enables a 100Mbps Internet connection. This makes the service ideal for anyone who needs low-cost wireless internet service.

Finally, Amazon also unveiled its commercial dish, which seems to be a suitable option for large companies or government organizations. This device is the biggest and most powerful device among these three dishes. Amazon’s commercial dish measures 19 by 30 inches (48 by 97 cm) and has speeds of up to 1 Gbps.

All these dishes are equipped with Amazon’s internal baseband chip, nicknamed Prometheus. Amazon says the chip combines the processing power of a 5G modem chip found in modern smartphones, the ability of a cellular tower to handle the traffic of thousands of customers simultaneously, and the ability of a microwave backhaul antenna to support powerful point-to-point connectivity.

Project Kuiper is Amazon’s unique service to connect people to the Internet around the world using an array of low-Earth orbit satellites. Amazon is expected to send its first series of satellites into orbit in the first half of 2024 and provide its services to its first customers at the end of the same year. Things like where the Kuiper project will start providing internet and how much it will cost customers are still unclear.

“Project Kuiper’s goal is to make broadband more accessible and affordable than ever before to underserved and underserved communities around the world,” Rajeev Badyal, Amazon’s vice president of technology for the Kuiper project, said in a statement.

Of course, no satellite has been launched for the Kuiper project yet. Two prototypes of this company’s satellites will be launched early this year by the United Launch Alliance Vulcan Centaur rocket. Last month, the Kuiper project received approval to deploy more than 3,000 satellites.
