The Telegraph reported that Elon Musk is going to build a satellite station on the British Isle of Man to provide broadband coverage across the UK, including remote rural areas.
Musk's Starlink company is in the final stages of obtaining permission to construct a station on the island, the newspaper notes. The local regulator says that a particular frequency range has already been allocated to Elon Musk's company, and they have been given permission to install equipment on the island.
Starlink did not comment on this information.
Earlier, Starlink launched a subscription to satellite Internet at speeds up to 150 Mbps in Britain in test mode. The subscription fee is 89 pounds ($124) per month. The antenna and receiver can be purchased for 439 pounds ($614).
Since 2018, Starlink has been deploying a satellite network that will allow everyone on the planet to get access to the Internet.
The Isle of Man is located in the Irish Sea, roughly equidistant from England, Ireland, Scotland, and Wales.
