SpaceX reports a new record of ~90,000 Starlink satellite internet subscribers, according to CNBC.
As reporter Michael Sheetz notes, that’s a 20,000 subscriber increase from June when SpaceX CEO Elon Musk announced 69,420 subscribers.
SpaceX routinely launches its own internet satellites into space to provide high-speed internet to underserved markets. Starlink, which users ground station terminals and SpaceX networking hardware for customers, currently operates in a dozen countries.
It’s very much the early days for Starlink as SpaceX says over 500,000 customers have ordered or placed a deposit for Starlink service.
