SpaceX has opened up pre-orders for its Starlink satellite internet service.

Starlink is a project by SpaceX that aims to bring high-speed internet to consumers anywhere on the planet by creating a network of satellites in space known as a “constellation.” There are now over 1,000 satellites in orbit, but Musk plans to have deployed 4,425 by 2024. Elon Musk disclosed that there are “over 10,000 users in the United States and abroad” so far who have already signed up for the broadband service through Starlink’s beta-test from back in October.

Starlink claims that it’s service is currently “meeting and exceeding 100/20 Mbps throughput to individual users.” Those interested in signing up should make their pre-orders quick as Starlink’s website notes Starlink services will be available on a first-come, first-serve basis, limited to a select number of users per coverage area. Users will need to purchase a special Starlink kit — a terminal and Wi-Fi router — for $499 USD in order to connect to the satellite service.

Starlink’s broadband service is currently available for pre-order on Starlink’s website for $99 USD per month.

Most recently, Tesla has bought $1.5 Billion USD in Bitcoin and has announced that it will start accepting cryptocurrency payments.
