Elon Musk Activates Starlink Satellite Broadband After Ukraine’s SOS

276

Washington, United States: Elon Musk said Saturday his company SpaceX’s Starlink satellite broadband service had been activated in Ukraine, after a Kyiv official urged the tech titan to provide his embattled country with stations.

“Starlink service is now active in Ukraine,” Musk tweeted, adding “more terminals en route.”

The tweet came some 10 hours after Ukrainian Minister of Digital Transformation Mykhailo Fedorov urged Musk to provide Starlink services to Ukraine, days after it was invaded by neighboring Russia.

Starlink operates a constellation of more than 2,000 satellites that aim to provide internet access across the planet.
