This was confirmed in a statement posted on the official Twitter handle of Starlink.

“Starlink is now available in Nigeria – the first African country to receive service,” the tweet reads.

Meanwhile, on its website, the company said customers can get its services at a lower rate with a 30-day free trial.

The notification said while the hardware would be available for N274,098, the subscription would be at a price of N19,260.

“Starlink is currently available in your area. Customers in your region typically see download speeds of 50-200 Mbps. No contracts, 30-day trial,” the company said.

“Shipping times are currently estimated to be 1 to 2 weeks from order… N19,260/month for service and N274,098 for hardware.”

While confirming the development, Isa Pantami, minister of communications and digital economy, described it as a milestone.

“We have made it again. @SpaceX thank you for hosting me in your headquarters, United States in December 2022 to complete the logistics for the deployment,” he tweeted.
