Starlink won't have a significant impact anywhere fixed services are a reasonable option. There's just not enough capacity available, even with 40k birds.

Good point, but developments in QAM technology benefit both fiber and radio nowadays. Starlink will eventually be capable of 10gbit links through... essentially just carrier aggregation to a massive LEO cluster.
That’s global 10gbit... I’m cautiously optimistic that we will see an incredibly bandwidth rich future, and I’m absolutely confident that humanity deserves one.

The entire framework of my company is built this way, from encrypted 10g enterprise and now residential connections, to access to c-levels for every customer. Scaling that will be a challenge, but it’s something I look forward to bringing to 8 billion people.
