Elon Musk announces big news for SpaceX's Starlink

Tech billionaire Elon Musk has announced that Starlink is now active on all the continents, including Antarctica.

Starlink is the satellite Internet division of Musk's rocket company.

Musk noted another batch with lasers reached orbit after the company deployed 54 Starlink satellites.

As per a report, the McMurdo Station in Antarctica has nearly 1,000 people living and working there during the summer.

According to the US Antarctic Programme, they have satellite internet, but it is not reliable in rough conditions.

While earlier they were at 17 Mbps link, Starlink can offer speed around 50-200 Mbps.

With the Starlink project, SpaceX's valuation hit $127 billion during its funding round in 2022.

In May 2022, SpaceX told federal regulators that its Starlink service has more than 400,000 subscribers around the world.
