0 Comments

SpaceX announces Starlink’s debut in Japan, the first Asian country to get the satellite internet service. Starlink’s service map shows the satellite internet service is available in parts of Japan’s main island including the Tōhoku and Kantō regions, and parts of the Chūbu region.  The monthly service fee is 12,300 yen ($84) on top of hardware costs of 73,000 yen. The company signed an agreement with Japanese telecommunications operator KDDI to act as Starlink integrator for rural and remote areas. KDDI:

Starlink’s unmatched performance is a great fit for our persistent endeavor to bring the urban mobile experience to rural customers, With Japan having more than 16,000 mountains and 6,000 islands, Starlink’s industry-leading satellite constellation is uniquely suited to provide Japanese enterprises with reliable, sustainable internet connectivity, even in times of natural disaster
