SpaceX produces 5,000 “dishes” a week for access to satellite Internet Elon Musk

Elon Musk’s Starlink satellite Internet is used by more than 100,000 people. The monthly growth of users of the service is about 10,000, however, it will hardly be possible to satisfy the demand of all comers in the near future, since more than half a million people were in the queue to connect to Starlink at the beginning of May this year. What is the reason for such a slow growth of the subscriber base? Is it really inadequate coverage of territories with satellite Internet?

Starlink is already operating in 14 countries around the world, and coverage in them is definitely not a deterrent, but equipment kits are clearly in short supply. As it turns out, the company only produces 5,000 “plates” a week. Even if there are enough other components to access the network through the Starlink system, the small volume of satellite dish production clearly hinders the connection of everyone.

SpaceX Chief Financial Officer Bret Johnsen revealed the volume of disks for Starlink satellite internet equipment at the Satellite 2021 conference. According to him, the company will try to increase the production of dishes, and will also introduce a more affordable one later this year. plate “. At the moment, the Starlink connection kit costs $ 500, but the kit with the new “dish” is expected to be half the price.
