Elon Musk’s SpaceX is partnering with a local Texas School district to provide satellite internet to 45 families in rural Texas. This is the first time SpaceX has partnered with a school district. Research has indicated that the area was in dire need of internet. SpaceX had been working on providing internet in higher latitudes in the northern U.S, and Canada. This collaboration with the Texas school district marked the first time it was moving into lower latitudes.
- The lack of broadband access is a major problem for those who live in rural areas.
- Space X is capable of delivering high speeds for uploads and for downloads as well.
- They are expected to launch more satellites into space so that everybody can have broad band coverage.
“The company’s Starlink satellite internet service is partnering with a school district in Texas to supply free broadband to dozens of families living in the surrounding rural area, starting in early 2021.”
