SpaceX’s space-based internet service Starlink should be ready to go live for customers, Elon Musk has announced.

The announcement follows SpaceX’s latest launch of 60 new Starlink satellites on Tuesday. The ambitious project envisions a mega-constellation of tens of thousands of satellites that will provide high-speed broadband to every corner of the globe. Since 2019, more than 700 Starlink satellites have been launched, meaning it will still take a while before the dream materializes. Enough satellites have been launched to kick start Starlink’s operations in parts of the US and Canada.

“Other countries to follow as soon as we receive regulatory approval.” says Musk

In April this year, Mr Musk suggested a Starlink constellation of just 800 satellites could be enough for global coverage.

However, the network’s broadband speeds would be a far cry from the one gigabit per second speeds SpaceX has promised.

According to Starlink’s website, the service will provide high-speed broadband to those parts of the world where “access has been unreliable, expensive, or completely unavailable”.
