Starlink, the satellite internet company owned by Elon Musk has gone live in Kenya. The company had hinted about this launch back in January and even went ahead to open pre-orders for its hardware.
Starlink, operated by American aerospace company SpaceX, offers a revolutionary satellite internet service that uses a constellation of low Earth orbit (LEO) satellites. Unlike traditional satellite internet, Starlink provides high-speed, low latency connectivity, supporting services not possible with traditional satellite technology. With a global customer base exceeding 1.5 million subscribers, Starlink notes that it is at the forefront of transforming the global internet connectivity landscape.
In the first Episode of our new season, we discuss Starlink entry to Kenya. Are we buying? Is it worth it? Should you consider it? What is it exactly? And what does it mean for local internet providers?
Listen in to the conversation with Emmanuel Chenze, Dickson Otieno, and Nick Kanali.
