SpaceX denied nearly $900M in broadband subsidies

By Jackie Wattles | CNN In a high-stakes decision, federal regulators announced Wednesday that SpaceX will not receive nearly $900 million in subsidies that the company was awarded in December, citing the fact that its satellite-based service is “still developing technology” and the company “failed to demonstrate that [it] could deliver the promised service.” The Federal Communications Commission had earmarked the funds for SpaceX’s Starlink internet service as part of the agency’s largest-ever subsidy program designed to quickly get internet access to people across rural America, where three out of five people say access to high-speed internet is still a pressing issue.
