All Residents of Ukraine Will Be Able to Use Starlink
In the near future, all residents of Ukraine will be able to use Starlink satellite Internet.
According to the press service of the State Service for Special Communications of Ukraine, access to the new technology for ordinary users will be provided after Starlink certification.
But so far, more than 10,000 Starlink stations are involved in the transfer of intelligence between Ukraine and its Western allies, as well as in ensuring control over critical infrastructure.
Since Starlink satellite Internet is in high demand by the Ukrainian military and can affect the operation of their radio relay equipment, Ukrainian authorities fear that mass consumer access could overload the system. Therefore, at the moment, access to Starlink is still limited. And the exact date of the full-fledged launch of Starlink in Ukraine has not yet been announced.
The issues of attestation and opening of a representative office are personally controlled by the Minister of Digital Transformation Mikhail Fedorov. In the early days of the war, he turned to Elon Musk with a request to provide Ukraine with access to Starlink technology in order to provide high-quality and uninterrupted communications for the Ukrainian military, and within a week received the first 500 stations with free local hardware.
On February 24, Russia carried out a paramilitary invasion of Ukraine on several fronts, shelling Kharkiv, Kyiv, Sumy, Chernihiv, Vinnytsia and other cities of various calibres.
The Ukrainian army is holding back the invasion of the enemy. From the hottest spots, the civilian population is trying to evacuate to other cities or even countries.
The world community organized to help the refugees and the Ukrainian army and imposed strict sanctions against Russia.
