According to Elon Musk’s latest tweet, SpaceX plans to invite “thousands” of beta users to experience Starlink satellite broadband services this week. At present, the satellite chain mission has been launched more than ten times in a row, relying on the growing number of satellites orbiting the earth to provide high-speed, low delay broadband services for ground users. < / P > < p > users who want to participate in the beta test of Starlink need to pay $499 for the terminal equipment of satellite communication with satellite link. It is a self guided dish antenna which is connected to WiFi router through cable. Beta users will also have to pay $99 a month for communications, but SpaceX warns that, given the satellite network is still being deployed, there may be interruptions at times. In a tweet this week, musk said, “there will be thousands of Starlink beta invitations this week.”. Musk said low latitude states like Florida will have to wait until more satellites are in orbit to be in place. Assuming that SpaceX’s launch schedule goes as planned, it may have to wait until January. As for European users, it will depend on country / region approval, which musk predicts may start around February or March 2021. India is likely to be around the middle of 2021. < / P > < p > as for the communication terminal equipment, SpaceX indicates that it is still in the process of improvement. “At the moment, it takes about five minutes to complete the setup,” Musk says. But with future improvements, it can be shortened in about three minutes. And the whole assembly process does not need any professional knowledge, just plug in the electricity into the sky. < / P > < p > as for the price of terminal equipment, musk also states: “reducing the cost of Starlink terminal may sound normal, but it is the most difficult technical challenge for us.”. The report shows that the number of app store purchases soared in the first half of this year due to the impact of covid-19
