SpaceX added subscribers to its Starlink satellite internet service, with Elon Musk's company saying it now serves about 90,000 users around the world.

The company gave an update on Starlink's growth in a July 29 call with Federal Communications Commission officials, noting that the service now has users in 12 countries.
