SpaceX is rapidly expanding Starlink coverage with every new fleet of satellites it launches to orbit on a weekly basis. A week ago, the service became available in Peru. Chile was the first country in South America to connect rural communities to Starlink in September 2021, followed by Brazil in 2022 after SpaceX founder Elon Musk met with Brazil's President Jair Bolsonaro and the Minister of Communications Fábio Faria to discuss bringing internet connectivity to the most remote places and the Amazon rainforest. The company quickly delivered Starlink terminals to rural schools in Brazil.
