Billionaire Elon Musk arrived in Bali on Sunday, May 19, ahead of the anticipated launch of SpaceX’s Starlink internet service. The Indonesian government sees this initiative as crucial for improving internet access and healthcare services in remote areas across the vast archipelago.

Chief Investment Minister Luhut Binsar Pandjaitan welcomed Elon Musk’s arrival via private jet at Bali’s airport on Sunday morning. According to a post on his Instagram page, they plan to discuss several significant collaborations, including the launch of Starlink.

Starlink Launch in Indonesia: Bridging Internet Access

Equal Internet Access: Elon Musk, CEO of SpaceX and Tesla, aims to launch Starlink in Indonesia to provide equal internet access across the country. This initiative targets improving connectivity for over 270 million people spread across three time zones, ensuring those in remote areas receive fast internet comparable to urban areas.

Launch Details: Musk plans to inaugurate Starlink alongside Indonesian President Joko Widodo at a community health center in Denpasar, Bali’s capital, on Sunday afternoon.

Regulatory Approval: SpaceX’s satellite division has already obtained regulatory approval to operate in Indonesia, as confirmed by Communications Minister Budi Arie Setiadi in a Reuters report last week. This step paves the way for Starlink to enhance internet services throughout Southeast Asia’s largest economy.

Starlink Expanding Operations in Southeast Asia and Beyond

Starlink has obtained a permit to operate as an internet service provider for retail consumers in Indonesia. Additionally, the company has received approval to provide networks through very small aperture terminal (VSAT) permits, according to the minister’s interview.

Indonesia marks the third Southeast Asian country where Starlink will operate. Malaysia granted the firm a license for internet services last year, and in 2022, a Philippine-based company signed a deal with SpaceX.

Starlink’s technology extends beyond Southeast Asia. In Ukraine, it is widely used by the military, hospitals, businesses, and aid organizations. Earlier this year, Ukraine urged SpaceX to take action against Russia potentially using Starlink terminals for communications in occupied areas. (Source: Reuters).
