Starlink now arrives in 32 Countries that doesnot include India

The immediate availability list doesn’t include India. It marks as ‘coming soon’ in blue colour on the map. The availability map does not show any timelines for countries where Starlink will be going to launch at a later stage. There are speculations that it will begin  sometime in 2023.

When Starlink will arrive in India?

Previously, SpaceX had planned to deploy its Starlink network in India and provide complete coverage by the end of 2021. Its aim was to target rural Lok Sabha constituencies in the country to provide high-speed Internet access in remote areas where wired broadband Internet connections might be difficult to set up. The company would have utilised 80 percent of the Starlink terminal shipped to India for rural areas. SpaceX had ambitions of installing up to 200,000 terminals in India by the end of 2022.

However, it failed to apply for a commercial licence to provide broadband and other connections in India by the end of 2021. The company was asked to issue a refund of 5,000 terminals that were pre-ordered by customers in India. Now, Starlink’s services will come to India in the coming years. More details about the availability of satellite internet in India should surface in the coming days. Previously. customers in India have to pay $99, which roughly translates to Rs. 7,400.

The internet connection says that it will have a latency between 20 to 40 milliseconds and speeds might range between 50-Mbps to 150Mbps. The design works in such a way that the receiver on the ground does not need to have a fixed wireline connection. It is how the company plans to provide broadband-level stable internet connection in rural areas in India, where wired broadband service providers might not be able to reach.
