SpaceX is on a collision course with the world's biggest telecom and satellite manufacturing companies, as it steps up development of its "Starlink" network of satellites. Now, much closer to Earth, a Falcon 9 is getting ready to take its first two Starlink internet satellites into orbit on February 17. Google, which once looked at developing its own satellite-based network, became one of SpaceX's biggest backers when it led a $1 billion investment round three years ago. Earlier, representatives of the company told that the "constellation" will be located in low earth orbit at a height of 1110-1350 km - lower than traditional geostationary satellites.
You might be asking, "Why hasn't anyone else deployed satellites in LEO to provide internet service that could potentially blanket billions of people?"

They are Microsat-2a and Microsat-2b, and will shed light on the beginning of the massive network that Elon Musk's company hopes to be around 12,000 individual low-orbiting satellites. "SpaceX'sapplication - along with those of other satellite companies seeking licenses or access to the US market for non-geostationary satellite orbit systems - involves one such innovation", he said, according to Space News. The spacecraft will be the first of its kind for the Iberian country, and should provide imaging services to both government as well as commercial customers.
