New Delhi (Reuters)-Indian government advised people not to subscribe

Starlink Internet Services is a division of billionaire Elon Musk’s SpaceX Aerospace Company because it does not have a license to do business in the country.

According to a government statement released late Friday, Starlink was told to comply with regulations and refrain from “immediately enabling reservations / provision of satellite Internet services in India.”

Starlink registered its business in India on November 1st. It started advertising and, according to the government, started pre-sale of the service.

In response to a Reuters email, Starlink said, “There are no comments so far.”

Companies launching small satellites as part of low earth orbit networks to provide low latency broadband internet services around the world, with a particular focus on remote areas where terrestrial internet infrastructure is struggling to reach is increasing.
