Too Long; Didn't Read

SpaceX plans to host 42,000 Starlink satellites in space to bring its internet service to every corner of the world. The company has started signing up beta testers and has already received deposits from 500,000 people across the US, UK, and Canada. The most significant change that Starlink is bringing to the world is high-speed internet with the lowest latency. The Federal Communication Commission granted $900 million in December to SpaceX for Starlink expansion. The internet company is now looking to get a hand over of $20.4 Billion from the FCC's rural digital opportunity fund to go big.
