Testing in IKN

SpaceX, the company behind this innovative project, has applied for permits from the Ministry of Communication and Informatics (Kominfo) to become a provider of Very Small Aperture Terminal (VSAT) and Internet Service Provider (ISP) services.

In the near future, Starlink plans to conduct trials of its service in the capital of Nusantara (IKN). This step is taken to test the reliability and performance of the service in a representative environment before it is launched widely to the public.
