屬 SpaceX 旗下的 Starlink 衛星連網服務,早前就進入了公測階段,同時也開放接受一般民眾的預訂金。Elon Musk 在 Twitter 上表示,Starlink 將會在「下個月」,也就是 10 月脫離 beta,屆時可以預期服務速度會再有提升。

Starlink 的目標是在 9 月為全球範圍提供覆蓋,但目前進度就只有北美洲和部分歐洲地區,加上少數澳洲、智利和紐西蘭地區,而已經計劃擴展的就僅有墨西哥和日本。但也有發現 SpaceX 已經有在菲律賓和南非等地註冊子公司,相信也會是近期就能推展到的。

是說衛星連網服務並不是全新的技術,但 SpaceX 的優勢就是高頻寬和低時延,能給偏遠地區和開發中地區都能近似城市的高速寬頻體驗。
