The prices for Starlink Communication devices have almost doubled in Ukraine . The reason is the increased demand for the system of Tesla boss Elon Musk after large parts of the country's mobile phone networks collapsed through attacks by Russia. A Starlink terminal costs $ 700 (around 670 euros) for new Ukrainian customers, according to the company website. According to the "Financial Times" , this is a price increase of over $ 300 (around 285 euros) compared to spring.

Everyone is talking about Twitter: Only Elon Musk, after buying Twitter at the end of October, bought half of all employees for $ 44 billion (around 43 billion euros). A chaos followed, initiated by the possibility to buy a blue stipulation hook for eight dollars a month.

The prices of the monthly subscriptions for customers fluctuate again and again and have now risen to $ 75 (about 71 euros). The Starlink costs have also increased in neighboring Poland. It is precisely here that Ukrainians order Musk's satellite package to bypass problems with the delivery in Germany, as the "Financial Times" reports.

Ukrainian government continues to focus on Starlink

The Ukrainian government continues to focus on Starlink's systems. Prime Minister Denys Shmyhal said on Tuesday that it was planned to order thousands of other units. Musk has supported the government with its company since the beginning of the war - and wants to continue to do so. However, prices of over $ 1,000 for individual Starlink devices are paid on the black market, as it is said.

For Ukraine, Starlink's satellite network has been particularly important in recent months. In the country, which was shaken by the war, there is no longer a wide range of network supply. The system of Starlink, which consists of satellites in space and an end device with antenna for consumers, an internet connection is provided for the population and the military. This is particularly important for communication between the military units during the course of the war.
