Tbilisi Technology Park first in Georgia to receive Starlink internet … –

The High Technology and Innovation Development Centre of Tbilisi has become the first organisation in Georgia to receive the high-speed internet from the Starlink service after the latter’s official introduction to the country on Wednesday.

The Park will have access to the broadband connection with a satellite dish installed near its offices, the Georgian Innovation and Technology Agency said on Thursday.

The development follows Elon Musk, the CEO of the satellite internet provider, on Wednesday announcing the introduction of the Starlink service in Georgia on the social media platform X, formerly known as Twitter.

The introduction of Starlink in the country was preceded by “active communication” between the Georgian Economy Ministry and the SpaceX corporation – the owner of the Starlink project, the GITA said.

The GITA also said the introduction had been preceded by a meeting involving the Ministry and representatives of the American company at the SpaceX plant in Los Angeles, followed by a return visit of a SpaceX delegation to Georgia.

Revealing the news, the Agency said Georgia was “one of the first pilot countries” in the Black Sea region where Starlink would become accessible.

It also revealed all technological parks across the country would “fully benefit” from Starlink internet access “in the coming future”, as SpaceX included the institutions in its programme ensuring participation in the testing process.

Introducing the benefits of the Starlink high-speed internet, the GITA said it would improve public services, raise the level of education, provide internet access to schools with no current connections and increase the level of security. 

The satellite internet will also contribute to the development of digital business and create an “attractive environment“ for international IT companies, it added.
