SpaceX is now sending out email invitations for public beta testing of Starlink, the company’s upcoming satellite internet service.
Last week, people who had registered interest in the service on the Starlink website began receiving emails from SpaceX to join the beta test, called “Better Than Nothing Beta,” Ars Technica reported.

Bluebird Network, a communications infrastructure provider and underground data center owner, is proud to announce the creation of the Springfield Internet Exchange (SpringIX) located in Springfield, MO.

Internet exchanges allow networks to interconnect directly rather than through one or more third party networks. Cost savings are realized due to the fact that all traffic passing through SpringIX is not subject to additional expenses, whereas
