"Starlink is currently in a network outage and we are actively implementing a solution," the company initially said on Twitter/X. "We appreciate your patience, we'll share an update once this issue is resolved."

The Internet provider did not provide an explanation for the outage, which impacted users around the world. A previous outage was caused by expired security certificates at the company's ground stations.

The company announced 1.5 million subscribers back in May, and has signed a growing number of enterprise customers - including NCL ships, Columbia Shipmanagement, Marlink, Tototheo Maritime, and Anuvu.

It has also partnered with telco providers T-Mobile in the US, Rogers in Canada, Salt in Switzerland, Optus in Australia, and One NZ (previously Vodafone NZ) in New Zealand, and KDDI in Japan.
