CEO Elon Musk SpaceX has now shipped 100,000 terminals to access Starlink satellite internet.
That means it has grown by 30,000 since June, when Musk said; the aid could have a large portion of its 1,000,000 customers within a year.
Musk yesterday (August 23) posted a series of tweets in which he quoted the song.
In June, Musk said help had reached 70,000 customers and would be “two to three hundred thousand customers, potentially more than 500,000” within a year. He also said at the time that interest in the organization was somewhere between $ 5 billion and $ 10 billion before reaching a positive income. And that speculation could be between $ 20 billion and $ 30 billion.
Musk’s tweets this week have noticed that help is currently available in 14 countries
The United States, Canada, the United Kingdom, Germany, France, Austria, the Netherlands, Ireland, Belgium, Switzerland, Denmark, Portugal, Australia and New Zealand.
“Our permit applications come from many more countries,” he added. “I want to serve the Earth soon!”
SpaceX recently said it intends to branch out and freely list Starlink. Virgin Orbit, the sending organization for business satellites, has shut down from Virgin Galactic and is set to open to the world through a $ 3.2 billion consolidation deal as announce later.
Starlink is creating an organization of low-range satellites. That can deliver web to customers anywhere on the planet, without caring about a nearby foundation. In Ireland, the framework was test by those in the rural areas of West -Cork and Kerry.
In any case, the help, which is currently in an open beta, will cost customers directly $ 499 for the terminal, and from then on it will cost $ 99 a month. This cost may limit the availability of enforcement.
In addition, the Starlink network has been widely criticize by cosmologists for its impact on research conductivity. In April, the International Astronomical Federation called on the UN to take action on this issue. The organization currently has more than 1,700 unique satellites and an additional 30,000 satellites are plans.
In May, SpaceX reported that an organization was working with Google to find Starlink’s ground stations with Google’s server farms.
