Elon Musk announced that beta testing of Starlink satellite Internet ends in October

The other day, Elon Musk’s SpaceX company successfully launched the Inspiration4 mission, in which a Falcon 9 rocket with the Crew Dragon spacecraft sent the first tourists into space. But Musk does not forget about another of his projects – the Starlink satellite Internet.

It looks like the project is finally reaching the home stretch. The Internet has been tested since the end of October last year. Almost a year has passed, so it is logical that many are wondering when the Starlink testing will end.

When asked by one of the subscribers, Elon Musk replied on Twitter that beta testing will end next month. True, Musk is famous for the fact that he often does not comply with the announced deadlines, so while his words should be treated with doubt. Moreover, not so long ago he promised that Starlink will exit the beta testing stage by the end of the summer.

What will happen after this – the head of SpaceX did not say, but usually the completion of testing means a transition to wider deployment and full-fledged commercial deployment.

SpaceX has launched more than 1,700 Starlink satellites into orbit, according to data submitted to the US Federal Communications Commission (FCC). But earlier Musk said that the company plans to launch more than 40 thousand satellites to fully cover the Earth with satellite Internet.
