When Starlink published the specifications for its new "Standard" dish in mid-November, we noted that the dimensions did not match either of the new dish models approved back in September. The original published dimensions (23.4” × 11.9”) was significantly narrower than the "new HP" dish approved by the FCC, which created some confusion.
Well, now we know the answer - it was a Starlink typo. Starlink has now corrected the dimensions on their website ( 23.4” × 15.07"), and the new Standard dish is, indeed, the "new HP" model we've been tracking since the September FCC filing. Here is an updated relative size comparison of Starlink dishes, based on this corrected info:
All other specs with the new Standard dish remained the same.
