Issue With Elon Musk's Starlink In India
Satellite Internet Company of Elon Musk, Starlink rolled out internet services quietly in India, in early 2021. But it was forced to shut down services after government intervention.
In November 2021, the Department of Telecommunications had warned Indian citizens to avoid buying Elon Musk’s Starlink Internet Services because it is not yet licensed in the country. The Telecom Department had also asked Elon Musk’s company to “get a license before selling Satellite-based internet services.”The government had also asked the company to refund all the pre-orders it received until it gets a license to operate in India. Starlink has already received more than 5,000 pre-orders for its devices in India. However, it is struggling to receive commercial licenses. Without getting a license, it cannot offer any services here.
