Elon Musk’s Starlink satellite internet service has announced that its operational service is now live and available to users around the nation.
This occurred after the business (Starlink) announced the sales of pre-orders.
According to reports, the satellite service provider (Starlink) said that interested clients may preorder the hardware for the device for $600 and that the device subscription service would cost $43 per month.
Starlink’s parent company, SpaceX, said on Twitter on Tuesday that the service is now available for usage in the nation.
The tweet stated that Nigeria was the first country in Africa to acquire service from Starlink.
Customers were also informed by the business via its website that a 30-day trial of the item would be available.
Isa Pantami, the minister of communication and the digital economy, responded to the news by calling the formal deployment a significant accomplishment.
“We succeeded once more. He wrote, “Thank you @SpaceX for hosting me in your offices in the United States in December 2022 to finish the deployment logistics.
