April 23rd, 2020 – Starlink Launch 9 should be just around the corner. Launch 7 has just been completed and Launch 8 is targeted for May.

Musk has said that Starlink can provide “minor” internet coverage with at least 400 satellites and “moderate” service with about 800, so the constellation will likely be operational relatively soon.


Private beta begins in ~3 months, public beta in ~6 months, starting with high latitudes.
