Elon Musk’s Starlink is now active in Nigeria, the first country in Africa

Starlink, a satellite internet service owned by Elon Musk, is now available for customers in Nigeria.

The change occurs a few weeks after Nigerian presale sales were publicized.

According to the firm, starting kits are available for presale for $600 for the hardware and $43 per month for subscriptions to its services.

The business, Starlink, said on Tuesday that its service is officially operational across the country.

“Starlink is now available in Nigeria, the first African country to receive service,” the tweet reads.

Meanwhile, on its website, the company said customers can get its services at a lower rate with a 30-day free trial.

The notification said that while the hardware would be available for N274,098 and the subscription would be at a price of N19,260,

“Starlink is currently available in your area. Customers in your region typically see download speeds of 50–200 Mbps. “No contracts, 30-day trial,” the company said.

“Shipping times are currently estimated to be 1 to 2 weeks from order…” “N19,260/month for service and N274,098 for hardware.”

Confirming the development, Isa Pantami, minister of communications and digital economy, described it as a milestone.

In 2021, it was reported that the company, which saw Nigeria as a critical market, was in talks with the Nigerian Communications Commission (NCC) to secure the licenses needed to launch.

One year later, Elon Musk announced that Starlink had been approved for deployment in Nigeria.
