The SpaceX consortium managed by Elmo Mus is not limited to space exploration projects. The company does not forget our planet and plans to build its own network to provide high-speed internet access.
Most of SpaceX’s consortium projects, headed by Elon Musk, focus on ideas about space conquest and alien planets. The company plans to send astronauts to Mars in a few years, and in the longer term would like to colonize it.
However, the company does not forget the Earth and its inhabitants and plans to provide them with high-speed satellite internet access. The latest SpaceX project is to include a total of 4425 satellites in orbit on Earth, which will operate on the high-speed Internet. The cost of this venture is estimated at $ 10 billion.
Of course, the company Elona Muska will not be able to handle it himself and count on the support of big corporations. It is supported by this idea of Google and Fidelity Investments, which have so far invested in SpaceX total about $ 1 billion.
At first, SpaceX would like to obtain permission to launch 800 satellite telecommunications to provide Internet access in the United States, Puerto Rico and the Virgin Islands. The new network will be an alternative to cable, fiber and other forms of Internet access offered on the US market.
