Must read

In a recent tweet, Elon stated that his company, SpaceX, plans to launch the satellite-based service Starlink in India and that they are awaiting regulatory approval. Starlink delivered 100,000 terminals to clients. The project’s goal is to use a constellation of satellites to deliver a global broadband connection.

In November 2019, SpaceX began launching satellites, and a year later, it launched a $99-per-month beta program for a small group of customers. According to TechCrunch reporter, since then, SpaceX has launched over 1,700 satellites and received over half a million additional bookings for the service, in addition to the 100,000 already shipped terminals. Many of Starlink’s beta clients reside in distant or rural locations with limited or no access to traditional broadband. Customers pay $499 upfront for the service, which includes a starter package that includes a user terminal (dubbed “Dishy McFlatface” by SpaceX), a Wi-Fi router, a power supply, cables, and a mounting tripod, per the article. The business plans to send 30,000 Starlink satellites into space, bringing the total number of clients to millions as per the story.
