We are so focused on the bizarre (and perhaps specious) controversy between Elon Musk and “yes, I want it / no, I don't want it” Twitter, that we have forgotten other fronts.
No I'm not saying the whole Twitter thing was a diversion from Musk to sell Tesla stock. I'm talking about other projects that in the meantime continue to make progress: one above all? Starlink, the "rib" (or cutlet, if you prefer) of SpaceX who wants to transform the internet. And he can seriously do it.
Over the past six months, the American tycoon's “orbital internet” service has not only received “blessings” from half the world due to the visual pollution of its (already over 2400) satellites. It has also been launched in 9 new countries, and presented both a new internet service for vehicles (and the ships) that a premium version of his package (already expensive on his own).
Starlink and his brothers: the space internet is getting closer and closer
New satellites are launched regularly, and the dream of a low-orbit Internet is only getting closer. This does not mean that Starlink is meeting all the conditions. The service still has reliability problems, especially if you are near trees, not to mention the visual pollution I mentioned above.
What is relevant at the moment, however, is that such an avant-garde is attracting (and will inevitably drag) new operators in the sector: at the moment at least two others. Which? Oneweb and Amazon (with his Kuiper project).
In summary: an entire generation of services is emerging that provide Internet connections via satellites in low earth orbit. This will completely change the shape of the web as we know it now, taking it everywhere in the most “developed” countries, and to anyone in the communities that are little or no reached today.
