Elon Musk says SpaceX has shipped 100,000 Starlink terminals

Elon Musk tweeted Monday, stating that SpaceX has shipped 100,000 Starlink terminals and is currently serving 14 countries. There are still license applications in other countries.
Tweets suggest that Starlink has added 10,000 subscribers in just three weeks. CNBC reported that the company had approximately 90,000 internet users in late July.

SpaceX's Starlink initiative aims to establish a network of thousands of satellites that will deliver high-speed internet access to customers around the globe.

SpaceX launched its Starlink beta internet service in 2020. It was available for $99 per month to some customers, which does not include shipping, taxes and installation costs.

Starlink Kits include a satellite antenna dish, an antenna stand, a power supply and a WiFi router.

SpaceX recently indicated that it will expand the service to include in-flight internet and moving ships.

Gwynne Shotwell, SpaceX's President and COO, announced in February 2020 that SpaceX would likely spin off Starlink Satellite Business and could have an IPO for it in the future.

SpaceX has already spent a lot of capital on the initiative. SpaceX was predicted to spend $10 billion or more on Starlink construction in 2018, according to Shotwell.

Federal filings last week revealed that SpaceX plans to use its Starship rocket to launch its Starlink Gen2 satellites into orbit. SpaceX has launched 1,740 satellites in Starlink and SpaceX is targeting to launch around 30,000 more satellites with its Gen2 Starlink system.
