Indian government changes Elon Musk, seeks ban on Starlink satellite internet service

Highlights:

  • Indian government gave a big blow to Elon Musk’s company
  • Starlink Internet Service has not obtained a license for Satellite Internet Service in India
  • The government has asked the company to stop its services immediately.

Elon Musk’s company Starlink has started pre-booking for its satellite internet services in India. But in a big blow to Elon Musk’s company, the Indian government has ordered a ban on Starlink’s satellite internet services with immediate effect. And the reason behind this is that Elon Musk’s company has not obtained the necessary license from the Indian government to provide satellite internet services in India. However, Elon Musk’s company has been instructed to get the necessary license from the government.

The government demanded a ban with immediate effect

The government on Friday said that Starlink Internet Services does not have a license to provide satellite-based internet services in India. Teva has urged people not to register the services of Elon Musk’s company, which are being featured in advertisements. The Department of Telecommunications has asked Starlink to comply with the norms for launching satellite based internet services and to ban the booking and provision of satellite internet services in India with immediate effect.

Announced that pre-booking has started in the website

“It is learned that Starlink has commenced pre-sale and booking of satellite based Starlink Internet services in India,” a statement from the Department of Telecommunications said. The department further said that the website also makes it clear that pre-booking has been started by the company. Users in India can book satellite based internet services of the company through the website.

In a statement issued by Starlink India a few days back, it has been said that there is a lot of enthusiasm in India about Starlink Internet service. And this can be gauged from the fact that the number of pre-order bookings in the country has crossed 5 thousand. Elon Musk’s company plans to launch internet services in the country by the end of 2022.
