Internent Service Provider ?? Iron Man
Elon Musk’s private space tech company is ‘likely’ to spin off its Starlink internet business and take it public, said SpaceX COO Gwynne Shotwell, according to a report by Bloomberg.
Starlink, which plans to offer internet service via satellites in space, is “the right kind of business that we can go ahead and take public,” Shotwell reportedly said on Thursday.
Musk has proven himself a consumer salesman at Tesla, his electric car company. But it is hard to imagine him (Iron Man) getting excited about managing telecom minutia. Once the interesting engineering problem is solved—someone has to figure out if the satellites can use lasers to communicate in space—a new management team can deal with the kind of customer satisfaction issues that keep most ISPs moored at the bottom of consumer satisfaction scores.
