Elon Musk has taken to Twitter to officially affirm that SpaceX‘s Starlink satellite broadband service will soon be out of testing a lot sooner than some may expect.

According to the CEO’s tweet, Starlink will be making its exit out of beta “next month,” meaning that users can try their hands at the service by October in more countries around the world. The company originally aimed to have complete global coverage by September of this year and so far, the service is limited to parts of Europe, with exceptions in Australia, Chile and New Zealand. However, Starlink is mostly available in North America.

The company has recently registered subsidiaries in the Philippines and South Africa but is looking to expand into Mexico and Japan. SpaceX previously stated that it had shipped 100,000 Starlink terminals, but as the network grows, it is likely the number will steadily increase.

Starlink’s services are expected to help close the gap on broadband in rural areas as well as developing countries, giving them better internet access. Check out the full tweet response below.

In related news, SpaceX has shared the first images from the all-civilian Inspiration4 space trip.
