Briefly.co.za recently reported on Musk after Space X revealed it would be launching a Starlink broadband internet service. The Starlink broadband internet service has recently released its pricing for a beta test aimed at the public.

The service will be beamed to users through small satellites. A school district in the Texas area, as well as local US government entities, are currently already using the service.

Now the service is being offered out to a small select group of consumers before going global. The 'Better than Nothing Beta programme' is set to start its initial service for both the US and Canada this year.

"Near-global coverage of the populated world" is set to occur next year with no specific dates laid out yet. According to the Los Angeles Times, a monthly subscription cost for the Starlink beta programme is $99 (just over R1 600).
