SpaceX’s Starlink unit in India registered its firm earlier this month, according to company paperwork submitted with the government, as it prepared to begin internet services in the country.

Having a local entity, Starlink Satellite Communications Private Limited will allow the company to seek government licenses needed to deliver broadband and other satellite-based communication services.

Elon Musk’s Starlink is one of a rising number of firms that are launching small satellites as part of a low-Earth orbiting network to provide low-latency broadband internet services around the world, with a special focus on remote locations where terrestrial internet infrastructure fails.

Amazon.com’s Kuiper and OneWeb, which is co-owned by the British government, as well as Sunil Mittal’s Bharti Enterprises, are competitors.

According to the corporate registration, Starlink wants to “carry on the business of telecommunication services” in India, which includes satellite broadband internet services, content storage and streaming, and multi-media communication, among other things.

It will also sell satellite phones, network equipment, wired and wireless communication devices, and data transmission and receiving equipment, according to the announcement.

According to a company presentation released by Bhargava on LinkedIn over the weekend, Starlink would focus on “catalyzing rural development” in India with its broadband services.

Once it is granted permission to operate, Starlink will give away 100 devices for free to schools in Delhi and the surrounding rural regions in the first phase. After that, it would focus on 12 rural districts across India.

According to the presentation, the company plans to have 200,000 Starlink devices in India by December 2022, with 80% of those in rural areas. In India, Starlink has received over 5,000 pre-orders for its products.
