In the U.S., satellite Internet service is used by only 5% of the network’s audience. However, Starlink’s capabilities allow it to compete with classic Internet service providers, so the transition to a new type of communication is already ready almost half of Americans over the age of 18.

The Future

Petition of the company to the FCC showed that Starlink now boasts ten thousand users who can no longer be called testers. They are considered full-fledged customers. Plus – the document talks about expanding the company’s scopa services: it would like to be more active in regions where there is a lack of broadband lines, and is asking the commission for permission. Moreover, Starlink is going to provide voice call services there as well, and also supply uninterrupted power supplies to get online in a situation of total power outage in one or another area of the country.

According to Ars Technica, SpaceX may outsource these tasks in order to offer the audience the best possible quality of service.
