Starlink India who recently posted to hire 'rockstars' for their India team has been accepting pre-orders for the beta version of the service for a fully refundable deposit of $99 (around ₹7,400).

In a social media post, Starlink Country Director India at SpaceX Sanjay Bhargava said the company wants to collaborate with all.

"We want to collaborate with all and have others besides us licensed to provide satellite broadband so that satellite plus terrestrial together can provide 100 per cent broadband, especially in rural districts," he said.

Musk's SpaceX faced its first challenge in March when an industry body representing Airtel-backed OneWeb, Amazon Google, Microsoft and Facebook among others wrote to the Telecom Regulatory Authority of India (Trai) and the Indian Space Research Organisation (Isro) asking them to stop SpaceX from pre-selling the beta version of its service in India.
