What happened

Mykhailo pointed out the importance of Starlink in a Twitter post and shared two examples of rapid restoration of internet connectivity in a battle-torn country.

“Is Starlink so important? It is impossible to restore the 10km cable connection between villages in the Czerny Zif region after a serious battle has taken place so quickly. Usually (a) months. It will take, “said Mykhailo, adding that internet connectivity was restored in five villages using only one Starlink device.

Important reason

The February mask responded to Ukraine’s plea to provide a Starlink station after the Russian invasion. Since then, SpaceX has donated thousands of satellite internet kits installed in hospitals and other critical infrastructure to Ukraine.

Starlink will beam down high-speed Internet via satellites in orbit to the Earth, especially remote areas including areas devastated by war and natural disasters.

Starlink plans to launch 4,425 satellites into orbit by 2024.
