Starlink plans to provide airplanes with internet as soon as possible
Starlink is committed to offering airlines an in-flight connection as soon as possible, Bloomberg reported, citing the company’s vice president Jonathan Hofeller.
Hofeler did not disclose the details of the tests. SpaceX is in talks with several airlines to offer in-flight broadband connections, he said. This will allow it to compete with Viasat, Intelsat, Telesat and other similar services.
Starlink is producing six satellites a week at its assembly site near Seattle, he said. The company is also moving to a more advanced version of its own devices.
SpaceX is now working to create a constellation of more than 30 thousand satellites to provide high-speed Internet around the world.
Recently Popular Mechanics wrote that Elon Musk allowed SpaceX to go bankrupt. The company’s CEO said they risk going bankrupt soon if they fail to make progress on the Raptor rocket engines.
