Elon Musk's satellite internet company Starlink could offer global coverage starting in September, Reuters reports.

The president of the company, Gwynne Shotwell, indicated that SpaceX could transmit the service from space.

"We have successfully deployed about 1,800 satellites, and once all of those satellites reach their operational orbit, we will have continuous global coverage, so it should be the September deadline," Shotwell said in a video conference with Macquarie Group, according to the news agency.

The executive pointed out that SpaceX must work within the regulatory framework in all countries to provide telecommunications services.

Starlink plans to deploy a total of 12,000 satellites at a cost of approximately $10 billion.

Currently, the service offers satellite internet in beta phase in 11 countries.

Elon Musk's Starlink satellite-internet project will be available in Mexico. To access it, you must complete a pre-registration. Then, the company will verify if your area is within those that its service will cover.

When entering the official Starlink page, enter an email address and select the area, in this case Mexico City, and a form is displayed to pre-order the service.
