SpaceX CEO Elon Musk’s goal to provide high-speed satellite Internet to remote parts of Earth using satellites orbiting in space is approaching steadily toward reality.

Musk said the satellite Internet project is ready for public use after the recent launch of the Starlink satellites.

SpaceX sent 60 more satellites into low Earth orbit this week, bringing the total number of satellites sent to 800.

The private space company hopes to eventually launch tens of thousands of Starlink satellites; To create a constellation capable of sending high-speed broadband to 99 percent of the inhabited world.

“We will be able to roll out a fairly large public test version in the northern United States, and hopefully in southern Canada, once these satellites reach their target location,” Musk said after the launch.

“There are more other countries that we can work in when we receive regulatory approval,” he added.

The Starlink network was tested on a limited scale, providing internet to emergency responders in the United States in the wake of the recent wildfires.

The Washington Department of Emergency Management was able to set up a Starlink wireless hotspot for residents of Malden last month after 80 percent of the city was destroyed by fire.

Musk said at the time that SpaceX was prioritizing emergency services and locations with no internet connection at all.

The billionaire businessman said in April that 800 satellites would be sufficient for major global coverage, even though the speeds would not be close to the speed of 100 megabits per second that SpaceX promised, until the network grows.

“Starlink provides high-speed internet to locations where access was unreliable, costly, or completely unavailable, through performance that far exceeds the performance of traditional satellite internet, and the global network is not restricted by terrestrial infrastructure restrictions,” said Starlink.

Areas under public beta include Detroit and Ann Arbor in Michigan.

Users will be able to obtain a network signal using a personal antenna device that acts as a wireless hotspot.

The network has faced criticism from some astronomers, who claim that the long chain of satellites disrupts observation and observation, and can impede scientific progress.

SpaceX has made efforts to reduce the impact of satellites, and a recent report from the Satellite Towers Workshop (Satcon1) warned that no combination of mitigations could completely avoid the effects of satellite trails on next-generation science programs.
