Starlink Satellite Broadband is Now Officially Registered in Pakistan

Starlink will be available in Pakistan by the year 2024. Once available, it will really be a game-changer for Pakistan.

Starlink will provide fast internet with a speed of around 1GB per second to every village and city in Pakistan. In short, Starlink’s internet will be better and faster than all the existing internet services.

Starlink is a Satellite Internet Constellation. SpaceX is the parent company that operates Starlink.

In 2018, Elon Musk first sent two satellites into space named TinTin A and TinTin B. Since then, Elon Musk has already sent 360 satellites into space in six trips.

Each trip contained 60 satellites. It is reported that Starlink’s internet will start functioning just after 400 satellites are sent to space.

With 800 satellites, it would start providing an average internet service. And with satellites of more than 1600 count, Starlink will start providing a really good internet speed.

Starlink internet is a project of 30 Billion USD. However, it is projected to earn $30 – $50 Billion profit every year.

How will Starlink Internet cover entire Pakistan?

Starlink aims to provide internet at the global level. Apparently, it will almost replace all the existing internet service providers.

SpaceX is basically sending 12000 small satellites to space. Each satellite is equal to the size of a normal household table.

However, despite their small size, we would still be able to see these satellites. Starlink satellites will operate merely at the height of 274 miles from land in space. However, a normal satellite operates at about 22000 miles above land in space.

These satellites will make a web around the globe that would cover the entire world – be it deserts, oceans, lands, or mountains.

As per reports, Starlink will provide the internet with a latency of less than 20ms and with 1GB per second internet speed.

A user once subscribed to the internet will get fast internet all over the world with a single package.

SpaceX will send 12000 satellites into space by the year 2027. For now, Elon Musk is permitted to send only 7300 satellites.

It is estimated that like other countries, Pakistan will also get Starlink Internet services within 18 months from now.

Starlink is planning to start its services in the current year 2023 from Australia and America. From the year 2024, it would start providing internet service to the entire world.

Starlink is looking for Beta Testers

Starlink is currently looking for Beta Testers to test their service. If you want to become a Beta Tester, head over to their official website and sign up to become one.

You would simply need to provide your details. Once signed up, they will allow you to test their internet services.

How would Starlink Internet benefit Pakistan?

Once available in 2024, Starlink internet will benefit Pakistan in a number of ways.

  • Firstly, it will provide the fastest internet speed to every corner of the country. The subscribers will enjoy the fastest internet of 1GBPS speed with a latency of less than 20ms.
  • Secondly, there will be no censorship of its usage. All the users will enjoy 24/7 internet service.
  • Thirdly, with such a fast-paced internet speed, Pakistan will gradually move to a technological revolution with large-scale integration and use of the internet. Most specifically, Pakistani youth will be able to benefit the most in multiple ways. Moreover, Pakistani businesses will also grow at a rapid pace.
