SpaceX and T-Mobile will host a joint event on Thursday at 8PM ET announcing plans to “increase connectivity.” SpaceX “chief engineer” Elon Musk and T-Mobile’s CEO and president Mike Sievert will be presenting at the event, which will happen at SpaceX’s Starbase launch site in South Texas, where a Starship prototype was recently loaded onto the launchpad.
With how little has been revealed, it’s hard to know what exactly the two companies are planning on discussing. Perhaps it’s a spectrum announcement of some kind? A partnership to strengthen both Starlink’s sometimes-overloaded satellite internet connections in rural areas and T-Mobile’s home internet product that doesn’t have quite enough coverage? A SpaceX deal for T-Mobile subscribers? We’ll have to tune into the show to see.
