Nigerians are delighted to welcome a new player, Starlink, that will challenge the existing internet service providers. There are expectations that Starlink will not only deliver swift internet services but may affect the prices of data in nearest future due to competition.

Gatekeepers News reports that Starlink is a satellite internet service operated by SpaceX, a company founded in 2002 by Elon Musk. SpaceX designs, manufactures and launches rockets and spacecraft but started launching Starlink satellites in 2019.

The company, in 2021, saw Nigeria as a viable business location and liaised with the Nigerian Communications Commission (NCC) to secure the licences needed to launch its service in the country. In 2022, Musk announced that Starlink had been approved for deployment in Nigeria.

Gatekeepers News earlier reported that Starlink is now live in Nigeria weeks after weeks after preorder sales were announced.
