The U.S. Federal Communications Commission (FCC) has granted SpaceX permission to install Starlink satellite Internet systems on moving vehicles, including commercial airlines, shipping vessels, and trucks.
SpaceX's new satellite Internet terminals will provide broadband access to high-speed Internet to more users, meeting the growing demand for Internet connectivity on the move, whether it's a road trip, an ocean cruise, or an international flight.
SpaceX requested regulatory approval from the FCC in March 2021. Now, the FCC has granted SpaceX's request, as well as that of another satellite company, Kepler Communications.
SpaceX is now negotiating with various airlines about installing Starlink terminals, and already has an agreement with Hawaiian Airlines and private jet service JSX. Starlink will begin to offer satellite Internet service on the aircraft of these companies in the coming years.
