SpaceX allowed to connect Starlink to cars

(MENAFN) SpaceX was permitted to begin connecting its orbital Starlink internet service to US-registered moving cars, as well as boats, planes and cars. Watchdogs stopped protests to the system raised by the company’s corporate competitors.

The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) stated its decision on Thursday, stating that SpaceX would be allowed to work “unlimited Ku-band” – frequencies largely used for satellite comms – “in the territorial waters of the United States and aboard US-registered vessels throughout international waters worldwide.”

According to the FCC “Authorizing a new class of terminals for SpaceX’s satellite system will expand the range of broadband capabilities to meet the growing user demands that now require connectivity while on the move,” noting that the authorization covers “vessels, land vehicles and aircraft.”
