JAKARTA – The Indian government urges its citizens not to subscribe to Starlink Internet Services. A division of the US billionaire's aerospace company SpaceX, Elon Musk, has been declared unable to operate in the country, because it does not have a license.
A government statement issued on Friday evening, November 26, said Starlink had been ordered to comply with regulations and refrain from "ordering/delivering satellite internet service in India immediately".
Starlink registered its business in India on November 1. They have even started advertising, and according to the government, have started pre-sales of their services in India, as reported by Reuters.
While Starlink itself said: "No comment at this time" when asked for a response by Reuters.
More and more companies are now launching small satellites as part of their low-Earth orbit network to provide low-latency broadband internet services around the world. The company has a particular focus on remote areas that are difficult to reach by terrestrial internet infrastructure.
This statement from the Indian government is predicted to hamper the 5G network development program in India. His fate had to wait for a permit which until now has been difficult to obtain.
