  • Do you think SpaceX will go on to become a Telco? Let me know. It's certainly an interesting prospect.

    • 🤦‍♂️ this is why Tesla and Elon were so embattled in the media for awhile... the media is, after all, the very telcos SpaceX will be competing with. He was even sued and heavily fined - almost lost his ability to participate in the company. Yes - I think the big boys expect disruption of the overpriced crap services they gouge us for. GL Elon!

    • I also see Starlink and Google competing with Iridium for the satellite cellular market: ships on open oceans, undeveloped countries, and just plain hard to reach areas. Iridium makes a fortune in these markets without a lot of competition.

    • I think Starlink will be a success, but ATSC 3.0 is rapidly approaching, ATSC 3.0 is a next generation HDTV System. It will offer 4K hdr Broadcast tv along with a GB Broadband Internet, all wireless and completely FREE. ATSC 3.0 can also broadcast on demand movies and live extra content. For more info watch TRvision - ATSC 3.0.

  • space x is a space company. Starlink will be its own company. space x was elons dream and he's starting all these other companies simply to fund his hobby. which was always getting to mars. I have charter spectrum omg they really need competition because almost everyone I know hates them and so do I! but that's who I have internet through.

  • Competition helps customers, In India artial and vodafone charges 300₹ for 1GB/Month than JIO comes and changes the table they give 1Gb/day for three months in 399₹. Now all telecome companies in India provide same plan as JIO. Jio changed everything in INDIA

  • I think the keyword is space junk. I am old so it doesn't apply to my travel plans to outer space. Look at Saturn and it's rings of space rocks in orbit around Saturn. Now look at how an ever growing rings of satellites and garbage that will slam into vehicles exiting earth orbit. Paint chips as small as 5mm can damage the glass on the retired space shuttle. The conservative in me says we're polluting the space above us and there's no way to clear the sky of that junk. Are we responsible consumers?

  • Telcos are really fucking you up badly. I'm in France and currently pay 35€ for a 70gb data, unlimited calls, 1h international free calls and unlimited number of sms. Put Ajit Pai in jail and reform the FCC, there are only greedy bastards there selling your consumer rights to telcos who needs to be investigated by the DoJ, they're clearly the ones who abuse the anti-trust laws the most by far.

    • It's not going to be free. It's a business, they're expecting to get about 3% of the global internet market. From a very recent article on There's a "fundamental goodness" inherent in improving internet access, the billionaire entrepreneur said in a call with reporters on May 15. But there should be a lot of money in the enterprise as well - perhaps up to $50 billion per year for SpaceX. "Total internet-connectivity revenue in the world is on the order of $1 trillion [annually], and we think maybe we can access about 3% of that, or maybe 5%," Musk said.

  • Adding to the discussion about whether starlink will sell to end users ... Apparently starlink projects that (it at least did at one time project) starlink could handle 50% of long distance internet traffic and 10% of local traffic in dense urban areas. The 50% goal would only be achievable if they were planning to sell a major part of their bandwidth as a backbone service to ISPs. The implications of the 10% local traffic depends on what you mean by “local”. If it means in-state or in-country that could still mean providing. Backbone services to ISPs. If it means “last mile” internet traffic, and targeting dense urban areas might suggest that, then starlink would be an ISP to end users. However even if being an ISP is in the plan, that is bound to come further down the road because setting up the infrastructure .... probably 5g would be a huge undertaking and he would be playing catch up with established ISPs who have fibre and cell tower and infrastructure and will have been planning for 5g. Another possibility is that they will partner with telcos around the world to provide the connection to local devices. The only problem with that is that increasingly companies offer bundled services. I doubt starlink would want to go down that rabbit hole. ... Ie providing mobile phone services and original content.

  • Starlink is stepping on so many nations' Telco toes that many of them will band together and start resisting in various ways. examples. 1, stop starlink satellites from flying above their countries for "security reasons", 2. Ban people from installing ground stations, 3. create enough paranoia and destroy the satellites at the 550km zone creating debris field that cause a cascade that destroy or cripple the network. This network will also leap over the wall setup by various nations notably China, and they will never allow that. I see a lot of resistance along the way. previously it was cost that made it prohibitive. Now that that out of the way, people will always find another reason to resist progress. That is human nature.
