Azercosmos and SpaceX sign cooperation agreement


According to the contract, Azerkosmos and "SpaceX" agreed on the "sale" of "Starlink" broadband satellite Internet service in Azerbaijan.

Thus, "Starlink" satellites will start providing Internet in Azerbaijan, and even "Space X" rockets can be used to launch new satellites of Azerbaijan.

"Starlink" satellite Internet services, successfully tested in our country by Azerkosmos, can be implemented by users at sea, on land, on railways and other transport lines, in business and information centres in remote areas, in short, in areas without sufficient Internet coverage. Gwynne Shotwell, President and Chief Operating Officer of SpaceX, said that this cooperation is an important step towards sustainable space development between Azerbaijan and SpaceX.
