Starlink refund for pre-orders

A report from Gadgets 360 revealed inside the email that many customers are currently receiving. According to the email, customers who had pre-ordered the Starlink can get a refund as instructed by the Department of Telecommunications. The DoT has ordered refunds for pre-orders until Starlink’s internet service is licensed in India.

Until now, Starlink was believed to be working to launch its services in the country in ten rural constituencies. Additionally, Starlink’s email states that the timeframe for obtaining the license to operate in India is currently unknown. Additionally, Starlink has several licensing issues that need to be addressed to begin operations in India.

Note, the SpaceX service registered its activity in November under the name Starlink Satellite Communications Private Limited. This would allow the Internet Service Provider to apply for licenses before providing the service to its customers. The main objective of Starlink services is to provide high speed satellite internet access, especially in rural areas.

Will Starlink services be canceled?

One of CEO Elon Musk’s most ambitious missions is Starlink Internet services managed by SpaceX. The company has already sent thousands of satellites to tag high-speed internet to Earth, with the goal of providing service anywhere on Earth, especially in rural areas. However, Starlink faced a roadblock in India.

The licensing issue in India could significantly delay broadband internet service in the country. Looking back, Starlink Country Manager Sanjay Bhargava said the company hopes to apply for a business license by Jan.31. Starlink aimed to have 200,000 devices in India by December 2022, starting with a major rollout by April this year.

Starlink also said it has received 5,000 pre-orders in India. But now, the pre-orders were stopped after the new direction by the telecom department. No one knows how long the delay will persist now.
