The Botswana Communications Regulatory Authority (BOCRA) states that importing, using, and reselling Starlink devices are crimes in Botswana. The authority has said it is actively reviewing the service’s application, even though Starlink still needs to get a license nationwide.
Although it’s unclear what charges Starlink could file against violators, importing into and resale in nations where the program has not yet launched. According to reports, some Starlink gadget owners who say they are using them for personal use are being denied entry into the nation when they bring their devices to the Kazungula border station with Zambia, where the service was first introduced.

Although Starlink prohibits the importing and resale of its devices, customers can use them in various nations throughout the continent by utilizing the “roaming” option. This necessitates that the user purchase the item legitimately in a country where Starlink holds a license.
This “loophole” appears to be being used by Starlink resellers like Starsat, based in Mozambique, where the service has a license, to import and transport Starlink devices to nations including South Africa, Botswana, Namibia, and Zimbabwe. MyBroadband claims that Starlink, citing a breach of the usage conditions, disconnected the accounts of hundreds of consumers who purchased the Starlink kits through Starsat and other resellers last week.
