Starlink coming to Cape Verde

It was reported in April 2023 that the islands of Boa Vista and Maio had signed agreements with Elon Musk’s SpaceX bringing Starlink installations to these two islands. The aim of SpaceX’s Starlink is to revolutionise connectivity on the African continent by offering reliable, uncapped, and fast internet access. This satellite based service is already available in several African countries. Whilst the provision of high quality, fast internet is something everybody wants, in the case of African nations, it needs to be affordable. According to the SpaceX website the Starlink internet service is now due to be available in all of Cape Verde starting in 2025.
