Satellite Broadband Services in India: The US-based geostationary satellite operator Viasat has followed its peers to reportedly launch fast internet from space in India very soon. The global satellite player valued at $2.25 billion is seeking approvals from the Indian government, which once approved would allow the operator to deploy two new satellites to deliver advanced broadband connectivity solutions in India. This update comes as Viasat’s competitors OneWeb and Elon Musk-led SpaceX have announced their plans to launch satellite internet services.

Viasat seeks authority to use two of their Ka-band Viasat-3 satellites. These Satellite Broadband Services are currently under construction, but Viasat looks forward to leveraging them once the Indian market opens to advanced broadband connectivity solutions. Other players in the market like SpaceX and OneWeb are also ready to start satellite internet operations in India next year.
