Qatar’s Communications Regulatory Authority (CRA) has given SpaceX’s Starlink permission to use satellites to connect the peninsula.
The CRA license lets Starlink Satellite Qatar offer satellite broadband Internet service to people and businesses in the State of Qatar through SpaceX’s Low-Earth-Orbit (LEO) satellite constellation, which covers the whole world with Internet service.
The CRA says that direct-to-consumer satellite Internet service is the main service that Starlink Satellite Qatar plans to offer in the country ” The CRA says that the “Starlink Premium” service is for businesses and people who use the internet a lot. It has download speeds of 150–500 megabits per second (Mbps) and latency of 20–40 milliseconds (ms).
Starlink obtains Qatar license
The license given to Starlink Satellite Qatar improves the availability of telecommunications services in remote areas away from the mainland, especially in places where the services of the currently licensed companies are not fully available (such as oil and gas platforms at sea, ships, yachts, and aircraft). It also gives individuals and businesses more options for telecommunications services and backup communication.
” Giving this license is in line with what is going on in this field all over the world. The Canadian Revenue Agency (CRA) says it helps the information and communications technology (ICT) sector grow and attracts more foreign investment to the country. This makes the economy more diverse and helps Qatar’s National Vision 2030.
