    Elon Musk’s SpaceX must have black ownership to launch Starlink in South Africa – ICASA

    More like "fast uncapped internet now accessible to all communities" , "but does it have local ownership?" , "well I guess those communities doesn't need access". Next newsheadline: Communities still without internet access.

    Dude imagine how they would fly a spaceship? And they'll probably end up using it to buy groceries at Checkers.

    I'm guessing the modems will be an issue. ICASA won't approve them which is the likely hurdle.

    Just one more stupid decision from a government run by morons. I’m not even surprised.

    The ANC mandates censorship in a lot of rural areas of the country for internet access.

    My dad does a crap load of travelling all over the country for Cartography and updates a lot of it to his social media as he is working and in many places Facebook and Twatter just flat out dont work even though he has full 4g, can browse and stream YT and browse the general net.

    If they cant censor Elon's internet solution, they dont want it here.
