Do you require a dependable and fast internet connection in Nigeria? If so, you’ll be glad to know that SpaceX’s Starlink service has now officially debuted in your country! Your ears were not deceiving you. Starlink is moving into Africa for the first time, beginning with Nigeria, the world’s 47th country.
Starlink intends to use its network of low-Earth orbit satellites to deliver high-speed internet connection to remote and underserved areas. According to the Nigerian Communications Commission, 47.36 percent of Nigerian homes will have access to the internet via broadband by the end of 2022. By 2023, they intended to have accomplished 50%, and by 2025, they hoped to have attained 90%.
Nigeria’s Minister of Communications and Digital Economy, Isa Pantami, recently declared that the country had achieved 100% broadband coverage three years ahead of schedule, thanks to Starlink’s licensing and operation.
But what about the cost?
What is the price difference between FiberOne and Starlink? Consider the following brief comparison:
|Speed||50-200Mbps||65Mbps, 88Mbps, 152Mbps|
|Cost per year||#505,218||#425,868, #620,280, #845,820|
|Monthly cost||#231,120||#381,048, #575,460|
Even though Starlink is already available in Nigeria, its high price and the fact that it isn’t available to everyone are still worries. Starlink’s goal is to provide a global broadband network, so if you need a fast and dependable internet connection, it’s something to think about.
