"A recent survey has determined that over half of Americans are ready to switch to SpaceX’s Starlink satellite internet service. This was despite only 5% of internet subscribers in the United States being connected via satellite today.
The study was conducted by Reviews.org, which asked respondents whether they would consider getting on board with Starlink once the satellite internet service is fully set up. As it turns out, over half of those surveyed stated that they’d be signing up for the Starlink Beta program, despite the $499 cost of the satellite dish and the service’s current $99 per month fee. "
"Interestingly enough, 55% of the study’s respondents who do not use satellite internet today noted that they would stay with Starlink permanently if the system’s connection was faster, even if its price was higher than their current internet service provider. Over 40% of the respondents also stated that they would stay with Starlink if SpaceX would allow subscribers to make payments on the satellite system instead of an upfront $499 fee. " Teslarati
It seems to me that Musk is going to get richer and richer. Hell, I can't wait to disconnect from Comcast.
The amount of revenue available to him is going to fund all his visionary colonial schemes for outer space. Up! Up! And Away! (That was the intro on some radio show when I was a kid).
Musk is a force of nature. I am glad that he is not a native born American. I wouldn't want to see his talents wasted on being president of the United States. pl
