The number of Starlink satellites SpaceX has deployed to orbit reached 835 following Sunday's launch of an additional 60 units from the Kennedy Space Center in Florida aboard a Falcon 9 rocket, CBS reported Monday.

SpaceX carried out its 14th mission in a push to establish a global satellite network that will initially provide high-speed internet access for customers across the northern U.S. and Canada.

SatNews reported the rocket took off at 8:25 a.m. Eastern time and was able to deploy the newest Starlink batch approximately 1 hour and 3 minutes later.

The company is working to gather latency data and test connectivity service speed on the new system.
