In the coming months, SpaceX could have more than 1 600 of its Starlink satellites in low earth orbit, et cela pourrait être assez pour que le service haut débit naissant atteigne presque partout dans le monde

Le président de SpaceX, Gwynne Shotwell, a déclaré le 6 lors d’une table ronde en ligne pour le Satellite 2021 LEO Digital Forum qui, after 28 lancements, aura une couverture continue dans le monde entier

Le 23e lancement opérationnel de Starlink est prévu pour avril 7 Cela signifie que SpaceX est à une demi-douzaine de lancements du point décrit par Shotwell

SpaceX a déjà réalisé avec succès sept lancements Starlink dédiés en 2021, as well as 10 autres satellites sur le covoiturage Transporter-1, selon CNBC

The pace of launches appears to be slower in April, but the company should easily reach 28 launches in a few months

It would be a more optimistic timeline than founder Elon Musk predicted in February when he said the goal was to cover most of Earth by the end of the year, all by next year, as posted on his Twitter account.

Shotwell then added that as soon as SpaceX has enough Starlink satellites in low Earth orbit to reach anywhere on the planet, future launches will concern the addition of satellites to increase network capacity.

Shotwell a également fait la prédiction audacieuse que Starlink sera en mesure de desservir tous les foyers ruraux des États-Unis dans un délai de trois à cinq ans.

Depuis octobre, starlink est en phase de test bêta et s’étend lentement à d’autres pays et régions du monde

Shotwell n’a révélé aucun détail sur la durée de la période d’essai, indiquant que l’entreprise s’efforce actuellement d’augmenter la fiabilité et de réduire les pertes de connectivité. Elle a dit que Starlink sortira de la version bêta quand ils auront un très bon produit dont ils sont fiers.

Shotwell a également déclaré que SpaceX n’a ​​no tiered pricing plans for Starlink She did not say whether the beta test rate of 99 $ per month would remain, but noted that the cost of the terminal is expected to decrease significantly over the next two years.

SpaceX said it costs the company about 1 500 $ to manufacture each user terminal, but beta testers are only asked to pay 499 $.

Shotwell said the cost is expected to drop to a few hundred dollars per terminal., which could reduce the initial investment to register for the service.

Last year, SpaceX began rolling out the first Starlink services in a public beta that now extends to customers in the United States, in Canada, UK, in Germany and New Zealand.

SpaceX continued to expand Starlink's service, the public beta having gained more than 10 000 users during their 3 first months, selon Florida Today

Shotwell noted that SpaceX has no deadline to exit beta., claiming the company still had a lot of work to do to ensure network reliability.

For the moment, SpaceX Focuses On Serving Customers In Rural And Other Hard-To-Reach Areas, Shotwell claiming Starlink will be able to serve all rural US homes, is around 60 millions of people.
