SpaceX raised its ultimate internet speed target for Starlink from 1Gbps to 10Gbps in its latest FCC presentation. It is not known whether the company will achieve this goal.
SpaceX, the space transportation company of which Elon Musk is the founder and CEO, aims to provide high-speed satellite internet service around the world with its project called Starlink. In fact, in a news story that we shared with you last night, we reported that recording has begun for the beta version of Starlink.
SpaceX made a new presentation to the US Federal Communications Commission (FCC) last week for the Starlink project and received official approval to launch thousands of satellites into Earth orbit as part of the project. SpaceX first announced the target data transfer rate at 1 Gbps in the Starlink project. But in a recent FCC presentation, that goal seemed to change.
