SpaceX can soon offer Starlink’s satellite internet to Canadians

SpaceX may soon start offering Starlink’s satellite internet service to Canadians. The country’s regulators — the Innovation, Science and Economic Development department, in particular — have granted the company’s request for regulatory approval, allowing it to offer beta access to the high-speed internet network provided by Starlink’s satellite constellation.

The service’s beta trials only started a few days ago after SpaceX sent out emails to people who previously signed up to receive more information about it. In the US, the service costs users $99 per month, not including the $499 upfront cost for the hardware kit needed to access the network. SpaceX called the beta program “Better Than Nothing Beta” to lower people’s expectations. It explained in

SpaceX gets regulatory approval to offer Starlink Internet in Canada

SpaceX has finally received approval from Canadian authorities to offer its Starlink satellite Internet service in the country, a decision that comes amid a recent expansion of the beta program in the US. With this approval in place, SpaceX will be able to offer rural Canadians access to high-speed broadband, something that will slowly expand into other countries, as well.

On November 5, a tweeted request to bring Starlink satellite Internet to Canada prompted a response from Elon Musk, who simply said that SpaceX is ‘awaiting approval from Canadian authorities’ to offer its service in the country.

We’ve known for a while that SpaceX was moving toward getting such approval. Back in October, for example, Canadian Radio-Television and Telecommunications Commission (CRTC) Secretary-General Claude Doucet issued a statement on SpaceX’s application for a Basic International Telecommunications Services (BITS) license.
