Elon Musk promised that he would bring the connection to the whole world with his satellite Internet company Starlink… and he already fulfilled it somehow.
This morning, Musk confirmed via Twitter that Starlink is now available on all continents of the world, including Antarctica. The statement is due to the fact that the service has just been activated in Mozambique and Nigeria, the first countries in Africa to have it.

Of course, this does not mean that Starlink can already be used all over the world, because the statement could be interpreted like this. For example, part of Latin America and Africa are not yet able to hire him, although the company has access to most countries to eventually reach them.

Still, there are some regions that Starlink will definitely not reach, such as Russia, China, Iran or Afghanistan, probably due to problems with their governments. In fact, Starlink was deployed to Ukraine to help on the telecommunications issue when the war against Russia broke out. In addition, Elon Musk went so far as to comment publicly that Starlink has withstood Russian attacks to break down connectivity.
Starlink has been available in Mexico for a couple of months now and even received a price cut to make it more affordable.
