SpaceX hosted a demo flight to showcase the capabilities of Starlink satellite internet service on a private jet last week as the internet service vies for more customers.During a one-hour flight from Burbank to San Jose, California, SpaceX demonstrated the capabilities of Starlink to deliver WiFi for Netflix, YouTube, as well as video chats from 30,000 feet in the air, Bloomberg reported.Bloomberg previously reported that SpaceX has pitched its internet service to four of the largest airline carriers in the US, including Delta, to no avail. The publication said that Musk's technology uses smaller and lower-flying satellites than competitors, which allows the WiFi signal to arrive faster. But, the smaller satellites might not be enough to power larger planes with more user demand, Bloomberg said. SpaceX has said Starlink can service planes of all sizes.What's more, regulators have expressed doubt in SpaceX's satellite internet service. In August, the Federal Communications Commission rejected a $866 million subsidy for Starlink, saying the company "failed to demonstrate that the providers could deliver the promised service" and labeling it a "still-developing technology."Read the full story by Grace Kay at the link in our bio.(Credit: Rachael Lupton/Insider, Saul Martinez and AaronP/Bauer-Griffin via Getty)#spacex #elonmusk #starlink #wifi #satellite #airplane
