SpaceX’s Starlink is a next-generation satellite network capable of connecting the globe, especially reaching those who are not yet connected, with reliable and affordable broadband internet services.

Elon Musk explains:



“For the system to be economically viable, it’s really on the order of 1,000 satellites. which is obviously a lot of satellites, but it’s way less than 10,000 or 12,000.”
