SpaceX and T-Mobile Make History with First Texts Sent from Starlink Satellites
You won’t believe this – SpaceX just sent the first-ever text messages using its new Starlink satellites and T-Mobile’s network! These modified satellites launched just over a week ago have special direct-to-device tech that lets basic cell phones connect directly to space. Wild right?
The goal is to give T-Mobile customers service even when they’re off the grid in rural or remote areas. Tests started this week and the companies say it worked flawlessly, exchanging texts between regular phones on the ground and the satellites zipping overhead at insane speeds.
