Honestly this should never have been a problem in the first place, there is a clear demand for fast broadband in rural areas, to the point that people are turning to the grey market to get it at a exorbitant cost and high risk to themselves.
Why isnt this service approved as a local ISP , put the politics aside, its clear that it will help people.
 
The South African Government doesn't like them because Ukraine used them against Russia in the war....
so nyah, nyah, nyah!

Knew it, sadly you can't do Jack. The system was illegal to begin with. You'd be running right into kak. Might get them but doubtful. Sorry to everyone that lost money would have been easier to do a public letter and something along those lines to get them to allow SpaceX to operate here
 
Good, why should they get free dishes, they knew the risks of dumping R15000 on unauthorized equipment. Enjoy the expensive paper weights.
