4,000 SpaceX Satellites to Launch Between 2017 and 2019

SpaceX is upping the ante in the race for a satellite-based wireless network by planning to launch 4,000 SpaceX satellites into orbit over the next five years, beginning in 2017, at an estimated cost of $3 billion. SpaceX will build all 4,000 satellites at its facilities in Seattle, Washington. SpaceX just launched 11 satellites into orbit last month and is set to deliver ViaSat’s next-generation high-capacity broadband satellite, ViaSat-2, in August 2016.
