Elon Musk’s company SpaceX states that it plans to change its satellite strategy in order to speed up the deployment of its Starlink broadband service. SpaceX has also set a new goal to provide broadband in the Southern US late next year. Not only will this change accelerate their plans of deploying broadband service, but they would also be covering a wider service area, which makes it even better.
“This adjustment will accelerate coverage to southern states and US territories, potentially expediting coverage to the southern continental United States by the end of the next hurricane season and reaching other US territories by the following hurricane season,” SpaceX told the FCC. The Atlantic and Pacific hurricane seasons each begin in the spring and run to November 30 each year.
