Countries SpaceX’s Starlink Internet is Available Now


SpaceX’s satellite internet service Starlink is widening its reach.

On Friday, the company revealed the service is now available in 32 countries around the world.

If you check out Starlink’s availability map, you’ll see three all types of shades of blue, marking areas where the service is “available,” those that are on the “waitlist,” and territories where Starlink is “coming soon.” The company says that if you order from an area that says “available,” the Starlink kit will be sent “immediately.”

SpaceX has been expanding the Starlink service since it exited beta late last year. In September 2021, it was serving customers in a dozen countries, and the number grew to 25 countries in February 2022.

Besides the U.S., the list of countries where Starlink is currently available includes a big chunk of the UK, Germany, France, Spain, Italy, and, outside of Europe, parts of Australia, Chile, and Brazil. Nearly the entire South America, Africa, and parts of Asia are currently labeled as “coming soon,” with availability mostly beginning in 2023.Starlink has become much more expensive, with the price of monthly service and the one-time dish price going up from $99 to $110, and from $499 to $549, respectively. It’s also got better; the Portability feature, introduced earlier this month, lets users take their Starlink internet with them when traveling, though this also costs an extra $25 monthly fee.
