Elon Musk’s Starlink, a satellite internet service, has announced the prices for its starter kits as preorder sales begin in Nigeria.
Starlink made the announcement in statement on Tuesday.
The development follows the company’s plans to roll out and expand its services to Nigeria this year.
According to the statement, interested customers can preorder the starter kits at the price of $600 (N438,000 at the current parallel market exchange rate) for the hardware.
Starlink also said customers will pay $43 (N31,390) per month for subscription to its services.
“Order now to reserve your Starlink. Starlink expects to expand service in your area (Nigeria) in 2023. You will receive a notification once your Starlink is ready to ship,” the statement said.
Starlink internet is said to work by sending information through the vacuum of space, where it travels much faster than in the fiber-optic cable.
