Satellite broadband is being viewed as a revolutionary technology to improve #broadband access and quality globally, especially for remote areas / areas without terrestrial broadband access. Major #satellite operators such as SpaceX’s Starlink and Hughes are looking at India as the next big market for this service. Even Bharti Airtel’s OneWeb is looking to enter this market. The technology could help improve broadband access and speeds in India exponentially, especially for rural and remote areas in #India. But before they can set up shop in India, these operators will have to grapple with many #5G, #spectrum and licensing issues.
