What is Project Kuiper
Project Kuiper is an initiative to launch a constellation of Low Earth Orbit satellites that will provide low-latency, high-speed broadband connectivity to unserved and underserved communities around the world.
Amazon’s Project Kuiper comes even as Elon Musk-run SpaceX abandoned its affordable internet project Starlink in India. Musk’s Starlink is currently available in more than 32 countries. Starlink registered its business in India via a local unit, Starlink Satellite Communications, and targeted a rollout in April this year. However, the Department of Telecommunications (DoT) under the Ministry of Communications, in December last year warned Starlink to get the necessary permission required to offer satellite-based Internet services in the country.
