Pre-orders for Elon Musk-owned SpaceX’s Starlink Internet service are available worldwide, including in some parts of India.
According to Starlink, it aims to cover several regions of India by 2022. Pre-orders for these areas have been refunded $ 99.
“Usability is limited. Orders will be delivered first and foremost, ”Starlink said on his website.
Pre-booked areas in India include Indian Colony Rd, Bapunagar, Ahmedabad, Gujarat. Indian Coffee Road, Indore, Madhya Pradesh, etc.
Musk said last month that Starlink satellite-based Internet service, which aims to provide low-cost internet to millions of people in remote parts of the world, will double this year to 300Mbps this year.
The company has now promised speeds of 50 to 150Mbps for the Starlink project, which plans to provide high-speed internet through about 12,000 satellites. It has already orbited more than 1,000 of its Starlink satellites.
Musk had previously said that Starlink’s service would be publicly traded after the cash flow of the service was “reasonable.”
Starlink said the service is best suited for areas where global connectivity is generally challenging.
Amazon’s Project Kuiper also has the same goal because it aims to deliver faster, cheaper broadband through more than 3,000 low-orbit satellites.
In November last year, SpaceX reportedly demanded that the Indian government use satellite technology to make it easier to access the Internet in remote parts of the country.
