The monthly cost of the Starlink service will increase from $60 to $75.
Satellite Internet provider Starlink of the American company SpaceX, owned by the inventor and billionaire Elon Musk, increased the cost of services for Ukrainians.
This is stated in the text of the letter sent to Ukrainian clients.
The cost of the service will increase from December 29. Yes, the monthly cost of the Starlink service will increase from $60 to $75.
“If you do not wish to continue using the service, you can cancel your subscription at any time,” says the letter, which was distributed in the Ukrainian segment of the Network.
It also became known that to get the Starlink terminal from the official website to Ukraine, you will have to pay $700 and $50 for delivery. Previously, ordering a terminal to Ukraine cost $385.
It should be noted that since the beginning of the full-scale invasion of the Russian Federation, Starlink terminals have become vital for Ukrainians: the military provides themselves with communication on the front line, and for civilians it is sometimes the only access to communication in blackout conditions. Starlink terminals are many “unbreakable points” and paid co-working spaces of Ukraine.
We will remind that Elon Musk’s company SpaceX turned to the Pentagon with a request in September to take over the financing of Starlink satellite communications in Ukraine. Musk himself explained the decision to stop financing Starlink in Ukraine due to large losses.
However, it later became known that the company SpaceX withdrew its appeal to the Pentagon regarding the payment of Starlink work in Ukraine. Later, Musk assured that will not disconnect Starlink in Ukraine even without funding.
