What is Starlink?
SpaceX deployed the Starlink global satellite system in May 2019. Its goal is to provide high-speed Internet access in places where it has been unreliable, expensive, or completely inaccessible.
The Starlink project involves launching thousands of satellites into Earth orbit to provide the world's inhabitants with high-speed Internet. In the future, the speed of satellite Internet should be 1 Gbps. The company's divisions produce more than 120 satellites per month. There are currently more than 1,500 Starlink satellites in Earth orbit.
Starlink, according to the official website, provides a beta version of services both within the United States and abroad, and "in 2021 will continue to expand to almost global coverage".
