Elon Musk announced that 100,000 Starlink satellite Internet terminals have been sold to 14 countries

SpaceX CEO Elon Musk announced that 100,000 terminals have already been sold and delivered to provide fast satellite Internet to residents of 14 countries. At the same time, a number of other countries have applied for licenses to provide a similar service.

The head of SpaceX added that over the past three weeks, the number of Starlink users has increased by 10 thousand people. As of the end of July, SpaceX’s global satellite Internet service Starlink had “only” 90,000 users.

Starlink is Elon Musk’s satellite internet project that will build a gigantic network of tens of thousands of satellites to provide fast internet access to (almost) anywhere in the world. The beta version of this online service launched in late 2020, and the subscription costs $ 99 a month, and this amount does not include shipping, taxes, terminal and satellite dish mount.

The Starlink Kit includes a satellite dish, mount, power module and Wi-Fi router. The cost of this kit, which is actually a Starlink connection terminal, is almost $500.

SpaceX recently announced that it will begin rolling out mobile versions of Starlink terminals that can be used on airplanes, ships, heavy vehicles, and more.

The editors of Free News remind that the Starlink direction will be spun off into a separate company, which will conduct an initial public offering (IPO) in a few years.
