Starlink receives initial approval for satellite internet services in Sri Lanka

June 06, Colombo (LNW): The Telecommunications Regulatory Commission of Sri Lanka (TRCSL) has taken a significant step forward in the realm of connectivity by granting preliminary approval to ‘Starlink’ for the provision of satellite-based internet services in Sri Lanka.

This announcement was made by the State Minister of Technology, Kanaka Herath.

Herath asserted that while the preliminary approval has been granted, the final endorsement will be contingent upon the completion of a formal public consultation process.

This process is crucial for gathering input from stakeholders and the general public to ensure transparency and inclusivity in decision-making regarding telecommunications services.

In response to the development, the President’s Media Division (PMD) has indicated that comprehensive details regarding the upcoming public consultation will be released imminently.

The initiative is an indication that the government is committed to fostering an open and participatory environment wherein the concerns and perspectives of all stakeholders, including citizens and industry experts, are duly considered.

The introduction of satellite-based internet services by Starlink holds immense promise for enhancing connectivity across Sri Lanka, particularly in remote and underserved regions where traditional infrastructure may be lacking.

By leveraging advanced satellite technology, Starlink aims to provide high-speed and reliable internet access to users nationwide.
