FCC Rejects Musk’s Bid for $886 Million Broadband Subsidy for Starlink

Elon Musk’s request for $886 million in US subsidies for beaming broadband service to rural areas via his SpaceX satellites was rejected by US regulators.

Funding Musk’s network of Starlink satellites wouldn’t be the best use of limited broadband subsidies, the Federal Communications Commission said in a news release Wednesday.
