SpaceX said Tuesday evening that Starlink, the company’s satellite internet service, experiencing an outage. The company is working on a fix. “Starlink is currently in a network outage and we are actively implementing a solution,” SpaceX wrote on X (formerly Twitter). “We appreciate your patience, we’ll share an update once this issue is resolved.”

Downdetector shows around 33,000 user reports of problems, though the volume of reports appears to be dropping significantly, which could indicate that things are recovering.

There are also a handful of threads on the Starlink subreddit Reddit about the outage. As of this writing, one thread that’s pinned at the top of the community has more than 800 comments, while another thread has more than 1,300 comments. A comment from a mod in the pinned thread has a timeline of issues, and the latest update says that the service is coming back for the user.

We’ve reached out to SpaceX for comment.
