 Musk: thousands more invitation letters for star chain test were sent in America and Canada this week


Musk said the public beta of the star chain service is currently limited to the northern United States and southern Canada, and may reach lower latitude Florida in January 2021. As for European users, it will depend on the time of approval in each country, and musk expects the service to be extended to Europe in February or March 2021. India may not be able to access until mid-2021.

Musk didnt say how many people took the public beta test, but he said this summer that nearly 700000 people across the United States are interested in the service. In the public beta released on October 26, some users reported that the download speed exceeded 160 Mbps.
