Is Starlink in Trouble?

I admittedly don't know much about Starlink and how it operates but this article makes it seem like it could be done before it truly gets going...
I'm posting for informational purposes only for those who are using Starlink. I have no horse in this race...

Seems like Space X is trying to keep a monopoly and painting a worse case scenario. Of course Dish and their consortium don't see a problem sharing. The truth is likely in the middle.

I live near a military base. A few weeks ago my Starlink became useless at the home base. After contacting Starlink they said they were tracking an interference issue in my area. After a few days the problem went away, Starlink sent me an a[email stating issue is now resolved but not explaining anything. They also gave me a one month credit. I can pretty much attribute the issue to interference from the 12 Gig microwave bands, which the military uses for various ‘things’. I personally doubt the FCC will license a competing service that will impose interference to another licensed band. It won’t happen.

I'm not sure it's a monopoly play, as Amazon's Project Kupier is in the works too. Would be interesting to see if Kupier would suffer the same interference?

OneWeb is another, Google as well. Starlink is just first, not a monopoly. But yes in general all the operators in a particular spectrum band have to play nice together or they can interfere with each other and create conflicts. OneWeb and Starlink are working together to try and come to a solution for their similar LEO constellations. Dish and Starlink are not playing nice together and are using various FCC filings to hash our their issues with each other.
