More Starlink Beta Invites Coming This Week Says Elon Musk

SpaceX CEO Elon Musk has just announced more Starlink public beta invitations are coming out this week.

“Several thousand more Starlink beta participation invitations going out this week,” said Musk.

So far, we’ve seen unboxing videos and first impressions of the Starlink internet kit, which costs $499 USD, while the monthly fee for the service will cost $99 USD.

Musk clarified more satellites are needed to reach lower latitudes, so a state like Florida would likely get the beta in January 2021.

Testers have seen some impressive download speeds and low latency for Starlink internet, which aims to connect those in rural areas with high speed internet that bests traditional satellite services.

SpaceX so far has nearly 900 Starlink satellites up in space and more are expected soon, as the constellations continues to grow every month.

So far, Starlink beta invites have only been made available in the United States. No word on when Canada will get invites for Starlink yet, despite SpaceX recently getting its telecom license approved in the country.
