PTA warns public to refrain from engaging in any pre-booking on Starlink

Pakistan Telecommunication Authority (PTA) on Wednesday advised the general public in their own interest that they must refrain from engaging in any pre-booking orders being placed on Starlink or any of its associated websites.

PTA further said that satellite broadband provider Starlink has neither applied for nor obtained any license from the authority to operate and provide internet services in Pakistan.

“The directions came in the wake of reports that Starlink, through its website, is asking intended subscribers to pay a deposit of $99 (refundable) as pre-order for equipment/services,” the statement read.

The PTA further added that PTA has already taken up the matter with Starlink to stop taking pre-order bookings from intended consumers with immediate effect as the company has not been granted any license for the provision of internet services in Pakistan.
