SpaceX Receives FCC Approval to Launch 7,518 Starlink Satellites

The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) approved SpaceX‘s request to deploy over 7,000 satellites for its Starlink constellation, which aims to provide broadband internet services. 

The FCC not only granted the request for SpaceX, but also allow KeplerCommunications, Telesat, and LeoSat to roll-out new and expanded services using proposed NGSO satellites. These proposed satellite systems are expected to enable fixed satellite service in the United States. Kepler aims to offer global internet connectivity for Internet of Things (IOT) with a proposed system of 140 satellites
