Satellite-based internet service may soon launch in India by Elon Musk

SpaceX has launched more than 1,700 satellites to date and in addition to the 100,000 shipped terminals and has received over half a million additional orders for the satellite-based internet service

Tech billionaire Elon Musk’s aerospace company SpaceX could launch satellite-based internet service Starlink in India soon, he stated on Twitter.

Musk replied to a Twitter post that the company is figuring out how the regulatory approval process in the country would work for Starlink.

“Just figuring out the regulatory approval process”, he said.

Recently, Starlink shipped 100,000 terminals to customers. Via a constellation of satellites, the project aims to provide global broadband connectivity.

In November 2019, SpaceX began satellite launches and around a year later, opened its $99 per month beta programme for select customers.

Since that period, SpaceX has launched more than 1,700 satellites to date and in addition to the 100,000 shipped terminals and has received over half a million additional orders for the satellite-based internet service.

Many of Starlink’s beta customers live in remote or rural areas, where access to conventional broadband is limited or non-existent. Customers pay a $499 upfront cost for the satellite-based internet service, which covers a starter kit to get them off the ground: a user terminal (which SpaceX lovingly refers to as “Dishy McFlatface”), Wi-Fi router, power supply, cables and a mounting tripod, the report said.

The company aims to launch around 30,000 Starlink satellites into orbit and expand its user pool to millions of customers.
