Elon Musk’s satellite Internet will soon work in the Philippines, and will also be more widely used in the UK

Elon Musk’s Starlink satellite Internet project is gaining more and more supporters at the level of governments and relevant ministries of different countries. At the moment, the service can be used in the USA, Canada and the UK, but, as the source writes, the Republic of the Philippines will soon join these countries.

The quality of internet access in the Philippines leaves much to be desired, with the country among the countries with the lowest internet speeds in the world, according to a VICE report. Given the geography, it is not easy to reach households with terrestrial broadband access to all 7,000 islands, in which case Starlink would be ideal. And the local regulator – the Department of Information and Communications Technology (DICT) – is already negotiating with SpaceX to provide satellite Internet services in the republic.

The British government is also negotiating with SpaceX. Formally, Mask’s satellite Internet is already working in the UK as part of a pilot project, but the country’s leadership wants to expand the use of Starlink – primarily to provide broadband access to about 100,000 households in the most remote regions of the country. Mostly in rural areas.
