Elon Musk's Starlink launches in Kenya
Elon Musk's Starlink satellite broadband internet service is now available in East Africa’s biggest economy, Kenya.
Subscribers will pay $650 for the kit - Starlink dish, mounting stand, cables, and a power source – and the monthly subscription fee is $46.
Kenya is now the sixth African country where Starlink is available. Nigeria, Mozambique, Rwanda, Mauritius, and Sierra Leone, also have the satellite broadband internet service.
In Kenya, internet connectivity solutions provider, Karibu Connect, is the first authorised Starlink reseller.
John Thuo, CEO of Karibu Connect, said: “Our partnership with Starlink is a significant progression in our mission to deliver affordable, high-quality internet access to all corners of Kenya.
“The deployment of Starlink’s groundbreaking technology will revolutionize how rural Kenya engages with the global community, fostering societal progress and driving economic growth.”
