1236 hostile65 If he offers unlimited data at the bare minimum of 4g speeds at around 50 bucks with a portable hot spot he will wipe the market for most normal households. I am sure he might even get in on the telecom business and just do a Google Fi like setup. [Edit] With Elon I would not put it past him to have Tesla's having the receiver built in and acting as mobile hot spots. The latency will not be as good as ground based, but will be better than most people think. There is a lot of potential once some hurdles are overcome.
516 bmanny Whole new concept of everything being in the Cloud.
93 mcndjxlefnd Alright, SpaceX launch cadence is approaching continuity. Can't wait until Boca Chica is launching too.
1526 DicedPeppers >"This is intended to generate a significant amount of revenue, and help fund a city on Mars. So in looking in the long term, and saying what's needed to create a city on Mars, well, one thing's for sure: a lot of money. So we need things that will generate a lot of money." I love how money for money's sake isn't his goal. To him, money's only useful as far as it can 1) get people to use renewable energy 2) get people to Mars. Don't have enough money to get to Mars? I guess we'll have to do this thing that makes us a ton of money first before we get back to the real mission.
352 RadioRoscoe This article is kind of crappy because it leaves out a bunch of important info. Here is some additional: >SpaceX expects its own latencies to be between 25 and 35ms, similar to the latencies measured for wired Internet services. Current satellite ISPs have latencies of 600ms or more, according to FCC measurements.
127 BerZB I would pay out the nose for a decent connection, especially if it went with me.
469 Disutopia2050 I really hope this happens. Fuck Comcast!
541 lilypad360 I would pay more for space x internet if it meant supporting space x
281 epheterson I just realized that SpaceX can essentially send their satellites up for free, piggybacking on purchased flights that didn’t max the cargo limits. That’s a huge advantage over any other company in terms of cost to get their products in space. Incredible!
120 catharticwhoosh The problem with satellite internet providers today is the data caps. I had Hughesnet which advertised 40GB a month, so I got that. It turned out it was actually 20GB during the day and they expected you to do all your file downloads with the other 20GB in the middle of the night. This was in 2012. WTF? It wasn't like it was 1999. Buying more capacity was a regular thing and one month, because I wanted to download a couple of games, my bill was in the $400 range. Not having any internet left for the month after the first week or two was a regular thing. Elon hasn't been a dick so far, so I really, really hope he can put them out of business. I'll sign up to help.
56 youareawesome The incumbent internet companies have really no idea how much bad will they have built up over the years with their bullshit. SpaceX only has to offer a close to equivalent service to what the incumbents purport to offer and people will flock to spaceX in droves
