Starlink to Apply for India Commercial Licence by the End of January
Elon Musk’s Starlink will apply next year for a commercial licence in India to provide broadband and other services, according to the company head.
StarlinkCountry director for India Sanjay Bhargava said this in a LinkedIn post,” We hope to have applied for a commercial license on or before 31st January 2022 (unless we hit some major roadblock),”
The company plans to roll out its services in India by April 2022 and plans to have 200,000 Starlink devices in India by December 2022. The company has previously said it expects 80% of these devices in rural areas. It has already received over 5000 preorders for its devices in India.
The Indian government however has advised people against subscribing to Starlink as it does not have a license to operate in India and has warned the company and ordered it to refrain from taking bookings and rendering services. Following this Starlink has stopped taking preorders, according to its website, saying “pending regulatory approval”.
As of last month, Starlink registered a local unit called Starlink Satellite Communications, making it ready to begin operations and business in India.
The major competitors for Starlink in India are Kuiper from Amazon and OneWeb co-owned by the British Government and India’s Bharati Enterprise.
