Starlink Launching Private Beta In ~3 Months


SpaceX has successfully completed its 6th Starlink launch. This means they have deployed over 420 low earth orbit satellites. On Twitter, Elon Musk confirmed that Starlink would be launching in a private beta in 3 months, and a public beta in 6 months. I can’t believe how fast this is happening! This is a huge inflection in SpaceX’s business, as they become their own launch customer (by launching their own satellites). Long-term this has the potential to add $Bs of revenue, and fund SpaceX/Elon Musk’s Mars ambitions. Let me know what you think in the comments below!!

  1. I currently have satelite internet that works on a repeater system in the middle of northern mexican mountains so this would be amazing! Wondering how it’d connect tho?


  3. There should also be a mobile phone service probably piggy backing the 4 g towers.

  4. According to the FCC filing, the per satellite max throughput is 20 Gbps, they won't be able to offer service to a significant percentage of the public in high density areas.

  5. This will absolutely crush it in Canada. We really only have 3 internet providers in the country and all of them are awful. My bet, this will have >50% market share here within a few years.

  6. I think what makes Elon Musk so productive is that he doesn't wait for a slow moving bureaucratic system, he just gets it done, whatever it takes.

  7. Given that we don't have much data yet, i definitely feel the other way. This is a great idea, looks reasonable given the speed of light is faster in vacuum and you could even potentially get lower latency internet than current infra. Getting from idea to a full blown company is something elon is pretty good at. But, I still am holding out on the private beta results before getting hyped!

  8. This is going to be just as revolutionary as cell phones were 20 years ago. A hermit in the Himalayas will be able to see what Boris' hair looks like today—and of course, far less trivial things..

  9. Elon Musk is the only person allowed to have "Entrepreneur" in their bio.

  10. My question for you is how you recommend people like you and I put our money into either spacex or a isolated starlink early.

  11. Seeing as how those satellites will offer increased ability to track you, I bet you won't be so happy about it when they are fully operational.

  12. I work at one of the ISPs you mentioned so my job is in jeopardy. However, I don't think the initial play will be for residential here. Just like Tesla started to sell the high end models first, they will likely focus on businesses – think about an entire commercial building, and then airlines and cruise ships if they stay in the higher latitudes. They pay more for higher quality (ie. reliable) connections and services like static IP addressing.

  13. Great video, but what is the signal that they will be beaming down ?? is starlink competition for 5G? and after they are all up there will we still be able to see them like people are reporting around the world ?? do u know what i mean , Thanks

  14. Give him another couple of years and Elon will announce that he has a starlink satphone what competes with regular cell service.

  15. Sorry, your credibility is taking a hit on this starlink overview. I'm excited about the technology as well, but you have seemingly misunderstood several parameters of starlink. Most companies don't buy beta products. The initial network will be minimal and have minimal capability. Elon has himself disputed several of your points. He has said he has no interest in spinning out Starlink (statements after Shotwell floated the idea). Most service will still be handled by conventional means in population dense areas because of economy of scale. The market for Starlink will be rural and other harder to service areas. The level of disruption of this service will probably be relatively minimal in terms of market share (it is a very big pie with a lot of bandwidth) and it remains to be understood exactly how much bandwidth can be delivered by Starlink. There will be some big value for some exceptionally fast high bandwidth operations (time sensitive financial transactions). To me a very lucrative market will be the military market whereby I wouldn't be surprised for contracts totally a billion plus/year for servicing world wide seamless operations for various military programs. There will also be markets for worldwide transport (airplanes/ships). I've also speculated about additional instruments that could supplement Starlink sats in various numbers (like cameras, or other sensors). Which such a large network such instruments could generate some very big and valuable scientific and marketable data sets.

    So, while I'm excited about Starlink, I think your summary misleads about initial commercial application of the basic communication service. Finally, Starlink will not get truly mature until Starship is being used to launch them (400+ vs 60), so that the cost to launch is reduced and the launch bottleneck to get big numbers in orbit is overcome. I see great things in Starlink's future, but it will still be several years before 1000's start to build up in orbit and more of the potential of the network starts to be exploited. Falcon 9 reusability was a game changer, but Starship to me will be the Model T of launch vehicles (1st mass produced and opening up the space market). Starship is an enabling technology and the true disruptor. Starlink is just one application that will be possible because of Starship, and may other exciting applications await with much cheaper cost for mass to orbit (or point to point travel on earth).

  16. How likely is it that mynaric will deliver the laser links vs spacex building the lasers themself?

  17. Can you ask Elon if Denmark is north enough to be a beta place to start in Europe ? I will be happy to manage this project

  18. If it’s competitive with the current ISP I have now(Mediacom) in terms of ping,download speeds,and price I will not hesitate to switch to Starlink.

    There could be a new Elon Musk stock for investors to bet on: SpaceX's Starlink

    SpaceX is considering spinning off its Starlink satellite business and may have an IPO for the unit in the next several years.

    President and COO Gwynne Shotwell announced the company's thinking while speaking to a group of investors in Miami, Bloomberg reported earlier.

    Starlink is SpaceX's plan to build an interconnected network of about 12,000 small satellites, to provide high-speed internet to anywhere in the world.

    A SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket lifts off from Cape Canaveral Air Force Station carrying 60 Starlink satellites on November 11, 2019 in Cape Canaveral, Florida. The Starlink constellation will eventually consist of thousands of satellites designed to provide world wide high-speed internet service.

    SpaceX is considering spinning off its Starlink satellite business and taking it public in the next several years, CNBC confirmed on Thursday.
    The move would take the fledgling satellite division of Elon Musk's space company and stand it up as a separate company through an initial public stock offering. SpaceX President and COO Gwynne Shotwell announced the company's thinking while speaking to a group of investors in Miami, Bloomberg reported earlier.
    "Right now, we are a private company, but Starlink is the right kind of business that we can go ahead and take public," Shotwell reportedly said. "That particular piece is an element of the business that we are likely to spin out and go public."

    Starlink is SpaceX's plan to build an interconnected network of about 12,000 small satellites, to provide high-speed internet to anywhere in the world.
    It's a project for which SpaceX has been steadily raising capital, as Shotwell said two years ago "it will cost the company about $10 billion or more" to build the Starlink network. Last year, SpaceX raised over $1.3 billion in new funding, with recent investor Ontario Teachers noting the future growth potential of Starlink.
    If SpaceX can overcome the technological challenges of building and distributing this service, the company is optimistic on its potential demand and revenue. SpaceX CEO Elon Musk in May told reporters that Starlink could bring in revenue of $30 billion a year – or about 10 times the highest annual revenue it expects from its core rocket business.

    SpaceX as a whole to stay private until reaching Mars

    Musk's distaste for the public stock market has meant SpaceX has remained private for nearly two decades. SpaceX shareholders have told CNBC previously that they expect the company would eventually list its stock publicly, even if that meant waiting a long time. Shotwell in 2018 said that SpaceX as a whole "can't go public until we're flying regularly to Mars."
    But SpaceX has become one of the world's valuable private companies, valued at over $33.3 billion, while its stock is one of the most sought after by private investors. Demand for SpaceX shares is so high that analysis group Equidate said the company has "an unlimited amount of funding" it could access from the private markets. SpaceX has steadily raised private funding as needed, while using the high demand as leverage to be "very pick

  20. Would buy into SpaceX in a second… Sadly will never happen because even if Elon did let it list I'd only be open to US investors and us European investors would have to buy in the secondary market.

  21. I don't know what I'd do to be among the beta testers.
    Fact is, I am in Italy, so I am not sure the beta program will even be open outside the US.

  22. I definitely feel that Starlink internet will be spun off as a separate company with an IPO. I'd love to get in on it, but have no idea how to know when that will happen. I doubt I'd be able to afford 100 shares, so I'd have to look to an ETF that will buy into the IPO heavily. If anyone out there knows how to get the investment facts on all this, please let me know.
