Starlink satellite broadband internet service is now available in Kenya.
Subscribers will pay $650 for the equipment - 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.
“Our partnership with Starlink is a significant progression in our mission to deliver affordable, high-quality internet access to all corners of Kenya,” said John Thuo, CEO of Karibu Connect, Kenya’s first authorised Starlink reseller. “The deployment of Starlink’s groundbreaking technology will revolutionize how rural Kenya engages with the global community, fostering societal progress and driving economic growth.”
