SpaceX Reaches 1 Million Active Starlink Subscribers
SpaceX’s Starlink satellite internet has had quite a year, and it has just announced an important milestone heading into 2023.
Starlink has reached a milestone of one million active subscribers worldwide, according to an announcement shared by @SpaceX on Monday.
“Starlink now has more than 1,000,000 active subscribers — thank you to all customers and members of the Starlink team who contributed to this milestone,” wrote SpaceX in a tweet.

The news comes just a few days after SpaceX announced it had 3,230 orbital Starlink satellites placed in operational positions, out of a total of 3,267 currently in orbit.
SpaceX has also been deploying Gateway “Megasites” for its second-generation Starlink satellites, as spotted in a filing in the United Kingdom.
As a result of its constellation and ground-level upgrades throughout 2022, Starlink is now reaching some of the world’s most remote regions.
A few weeks ago, a research team near the South Pole recently praised Starlink for offering “unprecedented connectivity” at the site, despite being in one of the world’s harshest climates.
The satellite internet service has also become available aboard JSX flights, as a free courtesy on most of its jets. Earlier this month, SpaceX also filed an application with the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) for cellphone service in partnership with carrier T-Mobile.
