Internet from Ilon Musk could cover the entire planet by the fall

SpaceX President Gwynn Shotwell said Starlink could cover the entire Earth with satellite Internet by the fall.

“We’ve successfully deployed about 1,800 satellites, and once all of those satellites reach their operational orbit, we’ll have continuous global coverage,” Shotwell noted.

She also noted that once the entire globe is covered by the Internet, Ilon Musk’s company will look into authorization arrangements for telecommunications services in various countries.
