KDDI Selects SpaceX's Starlink to Provide Mobile Service in Rural Japan

09/13/2021 | 02:01am EDT

By Kosaku Narioka

Japanese telecommunications company KDDI Corp. said Monday that it has selected Space Exploration Technologies Corp.'s Starlink broadband service to help provide high-speed communication services to its mobile users in rural Japan as soon as 2022.

KDDI said Starlink satellites are positioned in low Earth orbit at an altitude of 550 kilometers, or about 342 miles, to achieve higher transmission speeds and that the service complements KDDI's network of urban towers.

KDDI and Starlink have been conducting a series of technical demonstrations after receiving an experimental license from Japan's Ministry of Internal Affairs and Communications, the Japanese company said.

KDDI didn't disclose the financial terms of the agreement.

SoftBank Corp., KDDI's rival, has also been developing services that provide connectivity from space and the stratosphere, teaming up with companies like Alphabet's Loon LLC and OneWeb Ltd.
