Aerospace company SpaceX has shipped 100,000 Starlink terminals and is now serving 14 countries, its chief executive Elon Musk announced in tweets on Monday.
License applications are pending in many more countries, Musk added.
SpaceX’s Starlink satellite internet service is planning a ‘megaconstellation’ of tens of thousands of satellites as well as corresponding ground stations aimed at providing total coverage of the earth and leading to increased speeds and lower latency.
In June, Musk said SpaceX will spin off its Starlink arm in “a few years”. He said an initial public offer will be plausible when the space broadband provider is making “reasonable predictable” revenues.
