That's what happens when you have your own launch craft.

I saw the latest YouTube video on the Starlink constellation and was surprised to see how many satellites they've gone through already as part of their proof of concept.

I see also that Boeing is asking to launch their own blanket.

Something I didn't understand before was that in order to get service with the current fleet, you have to be sharing LOS with a Starlink ground station. This is what the LASERs are designed to address and perhaps why they're avoiding certain regions.
