Zimbabwe asks StarLink to cut internet services

ELON Musk’s StarLink has halted internet services to Zimbabwe until it receives licensing approval from the nation’s telecommunications regulator, a top official said.

The Posts and Telecommunications Regulatory Authority of Zimbabwe said it asked StarLink to disconnect all kits that were illegally operating in the southern African nation, according to Gift Machengete, the director-general at the authority.

“Its 100 percent true that we have asked them to disable those that are connected until they regularize,” he said by phone Friday from the capital, Harare. “This is illegal — how can we allow people to broadcast before they are licensed?” – Bloomberg
