New Delhi: Tesla chief Elon Musk may soon launch his satellite-based internet service Starlink in India soon. The billionaire has stated that his aerospace company SpaceX could launch the satellite-based internet service in India once he has figured out the regulatory approval process.

Responding to a Twitter post if Musk is launching Starlink services in India, the Tech billionaire that the company is figuring out how the regulatory approval process in the country would work for Starlink. “Just figuring out the regulatory approval process,” Musk wrote.

Musk recently claimed that Starlink will have the capability of data transfer at a speed as high as light. At present, the Starlink network relies on a dish, satellites and ground stations, GizmoChina reported. From the looks of it, the company is aiming to get rid of these ground stations that have proved to be a hindrance to fast data transfers due to the long time they take to communicate with the satellites.

With lasers, the transmission speed, as Musk claims, is expected to be around 40 per cent faster than what it usually is in optical fibers, the report said. As a result, we might witness blazing fast internet transfer capabilities without having the need to touch the ground, it added.

Musk has ensured that Starlink will soon cut down the ground station element from the whole of Arctic and provide enough bandwidths as well.

Considering Musk’s statement and calculating the speed based on the existing speed with optical fiber, Starlink will be able to transfer data packets at 180,832 miles per second and it turns out that this speed is approximately 97 per cent of the speed of light in a vacuum, as per the report.

Meanwhile, Starlink shipped 100,000 terminals to customers recently. The project aims to provide global broadband connectivity via a constellation of satellites. SpaceX began satellite launches in November 2019 and opened its $99 per month beta programme for select customers around a year later. Since that period, SpaceX has launched more than 1,700 satellites to date and — in addition to the 100,000 shipped terminals — has received over half a million additional orders for the service.

For the uninitiated, Starlink satellites are scheduled to send internet down to all users within a designated area on the ground. This designated area is referred to as a cell. Times Now News
