Your cell phone and Tesla will connect to Starlink without you having to do anything

T-Mobile, the US carrier, has announced an agreement with SpaceX to to bring Starlink, the company’s satellite Internet service, to the operator’s customers. The idea, described by both Mike Sievert (CEO of T-Mobile) and Elon Musk, is to provide connectivity in areas of the country where there is no coverage due to the absence of antennas to provide the service.

Initially, the service will offer bandwidth between 2 and 4 Mbps. The goal is for customers to initially be able to send SMS, MMS and even use certain messaging applications. The only requirement will be a clear view of the sky to establish a connection to the Starlink satellite network.

The company says that once development is complete, the service will be available throughout the United States, Hawaii, parts of Alaska, Puerto Rico and territorial waters. In principle, there will be no additional costs for those who have one of the company’s most popular plans.
