Starlink now available to ship immediately in 32 countries

SpaceX’s satellite internet service Starlink is now available in 32 countries around the world, the company has announced. Impressively, Elon Musk’s space company says it’ll ship “immediately,” contrary to earlier issues that caused customers to wait months to receive their dishes.

Starlink shared a screenshot on Twitter showing the service’s availability map, which shows the service as “available” across most of Europe and North America, as well as parts of South America, Australia, and New Zealand. Much of the rest of the world, including the entire continent of Africa, is shown as “Coming Soon” with availability expected at various points in 2023.

32 represents an increase in the amount of countries Starlink serves compared to earlier this year, when SpaceX said it was available in just 25. But more notable is the number of countries where SpaceX is claiming to now be shipping its dishes to customers immediately — the service’s subreddit is filled with stories of customers having to wait months for their orders to be fulfilled. In April, Rest of World reported that the majority of Starlink users are based in North America, with much of the remainder based in Australia, New Zealand, and Europe.

For our first-hand impressions of what the service is like to use in practice, check out our review from May last year. After a price increase that came into force in March, new Starlink orders now cost $599 upfront for its starter kit, with a monthly service charge of $110 to receive internet service.
