We're still months away from official details, but the rumors do suggest that SpaceX is working with Greg Wyler, who used to work for Google/O3b Networks, where they'll launch a total of 700 satellites. What would SpaceX be doing differently? Well for starts, their fleet of satellites would be 10x the size of the largest currently in orbit, with the individual satellites being much smaller than what is used for communications right now.
