Elon Musk, the CEO of Tesla, has taken potshots at Jeff Bezos, the former CEO of Amazon, for launching a lawsuit against his SpaceX. Bezos has stated that bringing lawsuits against his firm is his full-time job, according to Musk. Following Amazon’s request that the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) reject SpaceX’s newest modification to its Starlink satellite network, the latest salvos were launched.
According to CNBC, SpaceX has accused Amazon of attempting to hinder competition while “failing to address the Commission’s worries about Amazon’s own non-geostationary orbit (NGSO) satellite system.” Amazon has denied the allegations.
According to the Commission, “Amazon’s recent letter is regrettably simply the latest in a series of efforts by the company to stifle competition while failing to address the Commission’s concerns about Amazon’s own non-geostationary orbit satellite system.” In contrast to Amazon, which has taken 15 months to explain how their system works, the company has submitted objections to SpaceX on average every 16 days this year, according to SpaceX’s letter. Michael Sheetz, a CNBC reporter, was the first to report on SpaceX’s answer to Amazon’s request.
Musk responded to Sheetz’s story on Twitter, saying, “Filing legal actions against SpaceX is *actually* his full-time job.” Musk is known for his bluntness and has stated, “Filing legal actions against SpaceX is *actually* his full-time job.”
Musk’s grandiose Starlink project, which aims to deliver high-speed satellite internet access, was officially started. Amazon’s Project Kuiper will be in direct competition with Starlink SpaceX.
On a similar topic, Elon Musk’s Starlink satellite internet service, which will be available in India soon, maybe deployed soon.
According to Musk, when a Twitter user inquired about the possibility of Starlink services being launched in India, he responded by saying, “Just sorting out the regulatory permission procedure.”
SpaceX has delivered around 1800 satellites, and after those satellites reach their operational orbits, Starlink will be able to provide worldwide coverage by September 2021, according to the company’s website. However, the firm’s president, Gwynne Shotwell, stated that the corporation must obtain approval in each country before it can begin providing telecom services.
Notably, the Department of Telecommunications (DoT) had requested that SpaceX get the necessary permits before beginning to provide any services in the United States. ”The Department of Transportation has no issues with SpaceX providing its Starlink satellite internet service in India. However, it must adhere to local regulations and obtain the necessary licenses and other authorizations before providing the service to Indian consumers,” a source had previously told media agencies. “
