The promising network provider Starlink, which launched its first satellite in 2018, went through a number of 70,000 active users and looks forward to the rapid growth in the next year, according to SpaceX CEO Elon Musk.


“We are on our way to having a few hundred thousands users, possibly over 500,000 users within 12 months,” Musk said online at the Mobile World Congress trade show in Barcelona.

Starlink is the global satellite system, operated by SpaceX, which provides users with a high-speed internet connection, even in places, where the other internet signals from different providers could hardly reach.
