As Musk notes, Starlink’s 25-millisecond latency would make playing video games via satellite internet a lot less laggy. But the main benefit would be to provide low-cost broadband access to areas of the world that can’t get it right now because of a lack of on-the-ground infrastructure.

While great news for anyone without Internet due to regional restrictions, I hope Musk goes after already established ISPs and brings his service to their markets. Comcast, Verizon and AT&T would no longer hold their monopolies and duopolies in various regions in the US.
