ISLAMABAD – According to reports Starlink, Elon Musk’s satellite internet service provider has registered with SECP to run and offer internet services in Pakistan.
Ryan Goodnight SpaceX’s Director of Global Licensing and Market Activation met with Pakistan’s Federal Minister of Information Technology and Telecommunication Syed Aminul Haq to discuss registration.
Taking to Twitter Haq called it another step toward Pakistan’s fastest and cheapest satellite internet services.
Global tech companies’ services might significantly reduce telecom operators’ operational costs and allow users in remote areas to access the internet.
The Minister declared that accessible broadband services would be made available nationwide.
Starlink officials thanked Haq and other officials for extending cooperation and praised the country’s progress in IT.
Starlink asked potential subscribers to pay a refundable deposit as a pre-order for its equipment services but the PTA asked officials to stop taking pre-orders.
With a focus on elevating connectivity in remote areas, Elon Musk aims to provide high-speed internet to the world.
Almost 10,000 customers across 12 countries have received over 2,000 satellites from Starlink in total.
