More Africa NewsStarlink arrives in Mozambique

The SpaceX satellite broadband service Starlink has been launched in Mozambique. The kit costs MZN40,492 (USD628) with a monthly subscription priced at MZN3,000, according to a report from My Broadband. Starlink notes that Mozambique does not yet have a ground station for internet fallback and is currently relying solely on inter-satellite links, which could result in periods of intermittent service and high latency.

Starlink confirmed that it had been awarded an operating licence in Mozambique in May 2022. Other Southern African countries due to see a Starlink launch include Botswana (Q3 2023) and Eswatini, Namibia and Zimbabwe (Q4 2023).
