SpaceX to bring Starlink to Philippines, iiQ8 info
First in Southeast Asia to launch service, bringing broadband internet to remote islands
A new law allowing 100% foreign ownership of key industries in the Philippines has prompted SpaceX, the aerospace company controlled by Elon Musk, to enter the country, the government announced Thursday (March 31, 2022).
The move could give the archipelagic nation of 7,640 islands access to SpaceX’s low earth orbit satellite (LEO) constellation, known as “Starlink”, the Department of Trade and Industry said Thursday.
Starlink is comprised of over 2,000 operational satellites already in orbit. The whole network is expected to launch up to 40,000 LEOs.
“Preparations are underway for their registration,” the DTI said in a statement to local media. “At present, their application is being processed and the locations of their gateways are being visited.”
Philippine Trade Secretary Ramon Lopez said SpaceX’s entry in the Philipines would be the first in Southeast Asia, and deliver broadband internet connectivity in the country, especially in underserved and remote islands.
SpaceX is understood to be currently establishing a local Filipino entity as a wholly-owned subsidiary and is targeting to deploy gateways to roll out their service in the country, Lopez said.
