After Elon Musk’s Starlink launched 10 additional satellites into space to ensure high-speed internet, the company is one step closer to the goal of allowing every person on Earth to have access to broadband internet.
In this direction, Elon Musk’s company has a network of more than 1,000 satellites at low altitude around the Earth.

As the controversial tycoon said many times, SpaceX’s goal is to create a huge network of thousands of satellites near Earth (initially 12,000) designed to offer high connection speeds, even in the most remote parts of the world.
The cost of using the SpaceX network in the UK is £89 a month, which is about €100, plus the cost of acquiring the company’s satellite dish and related equipment, which is approximately €500.
Coming soon in Greece
According to CNBC, Greece is included in the countries that SpaceX plans to expand in the near future.
Alongside Greece are Austria, Australia, Argentina, Brazil, France, Chile, Colombia, Germany, Ireland, Italy, Mexico, the Netherlands, New Zealand, Philippines, South Africa and Spain.
SpaxeX’s internet is expected to be available in Greece in the first quarter of the year.
Analysts estimate that Starlink’s entry into the domestic market is expected to change the telecommunications sector, but is expected to be 20% more expensive.
However, it will cover every corner of Greece and promises ultra high speeds.
