SpaceX has recently announced the deployment of space internet.
I have good faith in that project and Elon Musk. While initially it won’t be for consumers on earth, it can eventually provide internet access to us.
For that reason I am closing all my stock positions in AT&T, Verizon & Comcast to cast my vote. I am even doing this at a loss, but it is a vote worth paying for.
I wish SpaceX was public already but it is not. I will reallocate the funds to Tesla, which is as close as I can get to supporting Elon Musk.
We might lose net neutrality for a while, but I am quite positive that it will return.
