The US Air Force is providing SpaceX with $28.7 million for Starlink satellite experiments and for exploration of military applications.

The SpaceX Starlink satellites will enable faster global communication. The speed is with reduced latency. Someone around the world will be able to data up to 30 milliseconds faster. The data is faster and the time is shorter because light travels almost twice as fast in the vacuum of space compared to light in a glass fiber.
