#1 I think he will make way more off his StarLink than any of his other endeavors. It has the potential to be bigger than Comcast as it is world wide. I expect him to have deals with NetLinks, ESPN, SoccerNets etc.. maybe even Disney. I don't see him staying Internet only with that bandwidth. Also deals with the SmartTV makers ...

#2 Also no reason, not to have Apple and Google devices working with his Internet. Since the net comes down to WiFi routers the routers could have a roaming login for service like Comcast does with it's roaming Xfinity login.
(for those without Comcast with Comcast you can have normal WiFi at home but roam to any Comcast WiFi with your Xfinity login even if it is unrelated to the owner's Comcast service.)
If enough places get StarLink you might be able to roam almost anywhere and not need Cellular except for an actual phone call. There is no reason in that reality that FaceTime or Skype shouldn't work.

#3 Does Mr. Musk plan to do the kind of monitoring and social nudging that Google, Facebook, Twitter, et al currently engage in so gleefully, 3dc?

#4 The 'mesh' is a channel, TW.
Don't know what the respective endpoints will try to control.
