SpaceX plans to provide continual coverage over northern states after as few as six more launches. They need license modification to speed up deployment in the Southern US. SpaceX's filing stresses the importance of quickly getting service to parts of the US where broadband coverage is limited.
The FCC application marks a continuation of SpaceX's drive to accelerate the deployment of its satellite constellation to deliver high speed, low latency, competitively priced broadband service throughout the United States, and especially to those who live in areas underserved or entirely unserved by terrestrial systems. Through this application, SpaceX seeks authorization to re-space
its previously authorized satellites at their existing altitude, with little to no effect on other operators, but to significantly benefit the early availability of broadband service to the unserved and underserved throughout the country.
