SpaceX Sees a $72 Billion U.S. Market for Starlink Internet

SpaceX CEO Elon Musk is bringing broadband satellite internet to the world.

Speaking virtually at the LEO Digital Forum last Tuesday, Shotwell reiterated SpaceX's plans to -- at least initially -- focus Starlink on providing internet broadband to rural customers.
