SpaceX is reportedly pushing for the use of satellites for better connectivity and enhancing efficiency of scarce spectrum available in India.

As per industry sources, SpaceX, in its suggestion to TRAI, had highlighted the issue of taxes and other administrative burdens on companies hindering affordable broadband.

To this end, the company has urged TRAI to promote maximum spectrum efficiency by expecting users to coordinate use of scarce spectrum resources across multiple systems, whether terrestrial or space-based.

Further, SpaceX has also sought protection for satellite service in high-frequency bands which include a set of spectrum identified for 5G services by International Telecommunications Union (ITU) in the 26 GHz band.
