Elon Musk launches Starlink Service in Ukraine

Elon Musk has announced that the Starlink satellite internet services are again functioning in Ukraine.

Elon Musk announced the activation of Starlink for Ukraine on twitter on 27 February. Spacex, Musk’s aerospace manufacturer and provider of space transportation services, is in charge of the satellite internet constellation. Musk also stated that the business is providing Ukrainians the required equipment. Starlink’s low-orbit satellites deliver high-speed broadband internet throughout the world, but access to the network needs the installation of a unique antenna and modem.

Authorities, people, and members of the crypto community are concerned that the country’s contacts with the rest of the world may be jeopardised. Since the start of Russian military activities in the nation, Netblocks has recorded “a series of substantial interruptions to internet connectivity.” Despite the fact that Starlink operates over 2,000 satellites, it was previously uncertain if Ukrainians would be able to use the service.

 

Ukraine, which was on the approach of regulating digital assets when the Russian military onslaught began, has also requested support in the form of crypto contributions for its defensive effort. Come Back Alive, one of the country’s leading non-governmental organisations active in military assistance, has already received millions of dollars in bitcoin.
