Elon Musk’s Starlink will soon be available to Nigerians. The entry into the Nigerian telecoms market is positioned to propel a new ringlet of competition among the telecommunications service providers in Nigeria.
The NCC disclosed that the company received “the International Gateway license and Internet Service Provider license, and will be trading as Starlink Internet Services Nigeria Ltd.”
According to the commission, the International Gateway and the ISP licenses have 10-year and 5-year tenure respectively. Both licenses take effect from May 2022 and may be renewed after the expiration.
