Who do I throw money at to get a plan
Anything to give Comcast the slip.
This could really help rural Australians too, who live on crisp speeds of <1mbps
Wow. These satellites have a very low orbit. Around 500km. Geostationary satellites orbit at over 35 000Km.
That actually gives pretty low latency as well. Although I am surprised they are able to keep them in orbit for as long as 5-7 years that close to the atmosphere. They have argon gas containers to adjust their orbit but it has to be a limited amount.
He also says people are paedophiles when people call him out for using tragedy to promote his business ventures.
Well, that’s too bad. Because the system is not going to make the money he thinks. That will mean his Mars missions suffer I guess.
Oh wait. I see even he has realized it won’t do what he said it would do before. Now even he admits he can’t compete with ground-based solutions.
Ho-hum. The classic Musk backslide. Nothing new here.
Would this enable the Chinese to bypass the Great Firewall?
Hope he goes with it
Well, I wouldn’t have believed flame throwers could fund his way out of debt, so maybe we should trust him on this one.
I wonder how Mars Vision compares to Eurovision
Will be great when disaster strikes, those Loon balloons are too slow. Badass name to boot.

They need to put them over developing countries with shit internet such as the Philippines . People there pay a lot for shitty slow internet and if musk could provide this for $60 to $100 a month it would change everyones lives there
Ugh Mars. Can we focus on fixing Earth before we try fixing an already dead planet?
Great article, thanks! Each satellite will have about a terabit of bandwidth. This is enough to give service to a lot of people, but not enough to serve the nation. Put another way…
> Musk said SpaceX does not think it is “going to be displacing” traditional, ground-based telecommunications networks with Starlink. Instead, he thinks the space-based network “will actually work well” with telecommunications companies because it reaches sparsely populated regions. While Starlink “has not signed up any customers,” Musk said SpaceX is talking to “possible strategic partners,” such as telecommunications companies.
