Musk said the satellite internet project is ready for public use following the recent launch of the Starlink satellites.
SpaceX sent another 60 satellites into low Earth orbit this week, bringing the total number of satellites sent to 800.
The private space company hopes to eventually launch tens of thousands of Starlink satellites; Create a constellation capable of delivering high-speed broadband to 99% of the inhabited world.
“We will be able to launch a fairly large public trial in the northern United States and hopefully southern Canada once these satellites reach their target position,” Musk said after the launch.
“There are more other countries we can work in when we get regulatory approval,” he added.
The Starlink network has been tested on a limited scale, providing Internet to responders in the United States in the wake of recent fires.
Last month the Washington Department of Emergency Management was able to create a Starlink wireless hotspot for Malden residents after 80% of the city was destroyed in a fire.
Musk said at the time that SpaceX was prioritizing emergency services and locations with no internet connection.
The billionaire businessman said in April that 800 satellites would be enough for important global coverage, even if speeds would not be close to the 100 megabits per second speed promised by SpaceX, until the network grows.
“Starlink provides high-speed Internet in places where access was unreliable, expensive or completely unavailable, thanks to performance that far exceeds the performance of traditional satellite Internet and the global network is not limited by infrastructure restrictions. terrestrial, “said Starlink.
Areas under public beta include Detroit and Ann Arbor in Michigan.
Users will be able to get a network signal using a personal antenna device that acts as a wireless hotspot.
The network has been criticized by some astronomers, who claim that the long chain of satellites disrupts observation and observation and can hinder scientific progress.
SpaceX has made efforts to reduce the impact of satellites and a recent report from the Satellite Towers Workshop (Satcon1) warned that no combination of mitigations could completely avoid the effects of satellite tracks on next-generation science programs.
