Elon Musk: Satellite Internet is ready

SpaceX CEO Elon Musk's goal of using orbiting satellites to bring high-speed satellite internet to remote areas of the world is gradually moving towards reality.

Musk said: With the recent launch of the Starlink satellite, the satellite internet project is ready for public use.

This week, SpaceX sent 60 additional satellites into low Earth orbit, bringing the total number of satellites sent to 800.

The privately owned space company hopes to launch tens of thousands of Starlink satellites eventually to create a constellation that can broadcast broadband to 99% of the inhabited world.

"Once these satellites reach their destination, we can launch a very large public experiment in the northern United States and southern Canada," Musk said after the launch.

He added, "After obtaining the regulatory approval, we can work in other countries."

Starlink received limited testing and made the internet available for emergency services in the US after the recent wildfires.

After 80 percent of the city fires burned last month, the Washington Emergency Management Agency managed to create a Starlink wireless hotspot for Malden residents.

Musk said at the time that SpaceX was prioritizing emergency services and offline sites.

The billionaire businessman said in April that even before the network was developed, it had not reached the speed of 100 megabits per second that SpaceX had promised, but that 800 satellites were enough to cover the world.

Starlink explains that Starlink provides high-speed internet access to unreliable, expensive, or completely unavailable places, superior to conventional satellite internet and the unrestricted global network. Through the land's infrastructure.

Public Beta areas include Detroit and Ann Arbor, Michigan.

Users can use personal antennas that act as wireless access points to receive network signals.

The network has been criticized by some astronomers who say long-chain satellites can interfere with observations and observations and impede scientific progress.

SpaceX is committed to minimizing the impact of satellites. The latest report from the Satellite Towers Symposium (Satcon1) warns that no set of mitigation measures can completely avoid the impact of satellite trails on the next generation of science programs.
