Elon Musk Says – Starlink is all Set to Provide High-Speed Internet Service to the World
Finally, high-speed Internet for all of us. Last February, Elon Musk said he’s going to provide high-speed Internet to the world. Now, Elon Musk says that Starlink has enough satellites to launch a beta version of high-speed Internet service.
On Tuesday, SpaceX launched a batch of 60 Starlink satellites. This new addition is more than 700, and SpaceX CEO Elon Musk believes it is enough to launch a public beta, reports Ars Technica.
“As soon as these satellites reach their target position, we will be able to roll out a fairly large public beta in the North of the United States and hopefully Southern Canada,“ Elon Musk tweeted

We do not know when these satellites will arrive at their destination, but it is highly likely that once the latest batch of 60 satellites is positioned, the world can expect to have internet access as promised by Elon Musk last year. It’s going to be rolled out in phases, most likely starting with the US first.
SpaceX is strongly committed to making Starlink a reality as well as a commercially sustainable project. Musk believes that this new venture will generate significant revenue for the company, and he intends to IPO Starlink in the coming years if the project is successful.
