Mongolia grants SpaceX licenses for internet service providers using low-orbit satellites
Mongolia grants SpaceX licenses for satellite internet, expanding high-speed access.
Mongolia has granted two licenses to SpaceX to operate as an internet service provider using low-orbit satellites, allowing millions of internet users in Mongolia to access high-speed connection via Starlink. The network of fiber optic cables already provides wide-reaching access to high-speed internet across Mongolia, but the use of low-orbit satellites will provide greater access to hard-to-reach areas. The cooperation between the Mongolian government and SpaceX was initiated in February, and last month, the Prime Minister held a virtual meeting with Elon Musk to discuss possible investment and cooperation in the electric vehicle sector.
