SpaceX has said that its satellite internet service Starlink, has received "extraordinary demand" throughout the United States, so much so that it has forced them to have further talks with the FCC to increase the authorized user terminals from 1 million to 5 million.
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.
