Starlink Terminals Have Been Pledged To Be Sent By Elon Musk To Ukraine
With the invasion of Russia causing so much damage to Ukraine’s internet infrastructure, SpaceX CEO Elon Musk has said something. He says that his company would bring its Starlink satellite internet service to the country. Musk on his Twitter has written that the services of Starlink are now active in Ukraine. More terminals are there to enroute. Hence, this is the best thing that is going to be provided by the CEO of SpaceX, Elon Musk. So, get the services if you are interested. Here are some of the updates that you need to know about Starlink terminals.
Starlink service is now active in Ukraine. More terminals en route.

Probing further, we would let the people know that this is the pledge made by Musk after Mykhailo Fedorov, the country’s vice prime minister, mentioned him in the tweet. He says that we ask Elon Musk to provide people with Starlink stations in Ukraine and to address sane Russians to stand. Hence, this is all that has been said by Mykhailo Fedorov to Elon Musk.
There were a number of people who were very much quick to praise Elon Musk’s announcement as some of the other Rebellion PAC executive director Brianna Wu noted Starlink is unlikely to help Ukrainians to stay connected. The Verge has reported that Starlink dish requires a “near-perfect” line of sight with SpaceX’s constellation network. Following four days of intense fighting, the internet connectivity in the country Ukraine has been spotty at times, particularly in the parts of the country that have seen most of the combat. On Saturday only, NetBlocks said it saw connectivity to GigaTrans, Ukraine’s backbone internet provider but falls below 20 percent of normal levels.
Guys, use some critical thinking before you praise this.
A. Starlink doesn’t work.
B. Do you really think you can get a satellite service installation and modem in the middle of a war?

Meanwhile, Ukraine has not suffered the blackout yet but everything is making it far more difficult for Ukrainians to stay in touch with their loved ones.
