Starlink to apply for India licence by January

SpaceX’s satellite internet division, Starlink, the satellite internet division will apply early next year for a commercial licence in India to provide broadband and other services.

If the company can roll out its services by April, it aims to have 200,000 Starlink devices in India by December 2022, Reuters report.

Starlink’s competitors include Amazon.com’s Kuiper and OneWeb which is co-owned by the British government and India’s Bharti Enterprises.

While Starlink has already received over 5,000 pre-orders for its devices in India, it has not begun any services.
