The rocket sent a batch of 54 Starlink satellites into orbit for SpaceX’s internet service.

“This launch marks the first of Starlink’s upgraded network,” SpaceX wrote. “Under our new license, we are now able to deploy satellites to new orbits that will add even more capacity to the network. Ultimately, this enables us to add more customers and provide faster service — particularly in areas that are currently over-subscribed.”
