The US space agency was forced to file a request with the Federal Communications Commission on Friday, where the Elon Musk founded SpaceX asked the FXX to increase the number of authorized user terminals from 1 million, to 5 million.

This is how large the "extraordinary demand" for Starlink has been.

SpaceX did say back in October 2019 that by mid-2020 it wanted to have its Starlink satellite service offering internet access to Americans. We're now in the mid-2020 mark and tipping into the second half of 2020 and it seems even during the COVID-19 pandemic, SpaceX is still getting things done.
