Brightline, a train operator in Florida, is installing SpaceX’s Starlink broadband by satellite service on 10 of its trains. The services connect major cities throughout the US state.

The announcement comes following Starlink gaining regulatory approval to deliver its signals to moving vehicles.

The ‘free’ service is initially available on five trains serving Miami and West Palm Beach in south Florida and will be added to five more services which connect to Orlando.

Brightline said that its passengers would be able to use all the normal broadband services including video streaming, gaming, video calls and other conventional demands.

SpaceX VP/Starlink commercial sales Jonathan Hofeller, commented: “We’re excited to work with Brightline and provide Starlink to their entire fleet, which will enable all of Brightline’s passengers to access high-speed, low-latency internet that is critical in our modern age.”
