ISLAMABAD – Starlink, Elon Musk’s well-known satellite broadband business, apparently has registered to operate and deliver internet services in Pakistan.
SpaceX director of worldwide licensing and market activation Ryan Goodnight met with Syed Aminul Haq, federal minister of information technology and telecommunication, to explore Starlink registration in Pakistan.
The Minister said Starlink is SEC-registered. (SECP). The group examined whether Starlink’s fast and cheap satellite internet may enable Pakistan’s affordable broadband offerings.
Elon Musk, a top tech executive, wants to provide high-speed internet worldwide, especially in distant locations.
Starlink currently serves over 10,000 customers across 12 countries with 2,000 satellites.
The Minister hoped Starlink’s services would greatly lower telecom carriers’ operational expenses, especially in distant places where inactive mobile towers could be activated affordably.
