Starlink, the satellite internet division of Elon Musk’s rocket company SpaceX, started pre-booking after registering its business in India in the year 2021 itself. But, the company has not yet got the license. Right there, now media reports If it is to be believed, Musk’s company Starlink may soon get a business license in India. After getting the license, this company will start voice and data communication services through satellite in India. Due to this, Ambani and Bhartiya Mittal, already present in the sector, will have to be ready for the challenge.

According to reports, the government had asked some questions to Starlink regarding data storage and transfer norms and the government is completely satisfied with the response received from the company. After the security check, the company will be given the license for Global Mobile Personal Communication Satellite Services (GMPCS). With its help, the company will be able to provide satellite broadband, voice and messaging services in the country.

Ambani and Mittal rule before Musk

It is noteworthy that till now only two companies in India have got GMPCS license. This includes Reliance Jio’s satcom company and Sunil Bharti Mittal’s investment company OneWeb. Therefore, it is being said that Ambani and Bharti Mittal will be affected the most by the arrival of Starlink.

Amazon has also applied for license

Let us remind you that Jeff Bezos’s company Amazon has also applied for its license but the government has not yet considered it.

How to get a license

Satcom service providers also have to obtain permission from the Indian National Space Promotion and Authorization Centre. Companies then have to wait for spectrum allocation.

Let us tell you that Starlink is a subsidiary of Musk’s company SpaceX. At the same time, in February 2021, SpaceX started taking pre-bookings for Starlink satellite internet service in select locations like the US, Canada and the UK. Later its pre-booking started in India.
