Ilona Mask SpaceX has applied for high-speed Internet for Canadians living in remote areas.
Correspondents for The Globe and Mail recently reported that SpaceX has filed an application with the Canadian Radio Television and Telecommunications Commission (CRTC) to obtain a license for international telecommunications services, or BITS.
SpaceX offers high-speed Internet channels for remote regions, while the SpaceX satellite communications network will be involved.
Based on research in space technology, it is theoretically possible to offer more wireless telecommunications services such as voice and data. Currently, this application is focused on providing access to high-speed Internet in rural areas.
In the CRTC there is evidence that up to 40% of Canadians who do not live in large cities do not have access to high-speed Internet.
Last fall, the promises of the ruling liberal authorities came down to providing 95% of Canadian homes and businesses with high-speed Internet by 2026; and by 2030, every Canadian family will have access to it, “no matter in which part of the country she lives.”
