Ukraine received another 1,570 additional Starlink terminals from Poland. This was reported on Telegram by the Minister of Digital Transformation Mykhailo Fedorov.
Since the beginning of the full-scale invasion, Ukraine has received more than 20,000 Starlink terminals from governments of various countries and private individuals, 5 thousand of them with the support of the Polish government. Now another 1,570 terminals have been added to this number.
“This is especially important now, because we have problems with electricity due to Russian shelling. When the light goes out, mobile operators and Internet providers do not work in some regions. Therefore, we will provide the country with public WI-FI points where people can stay connected,” wrote Fedorov.
It is about public places with Wi-Fi, which will work without electricity thanks to Powerwall and Starlink, which Mykhailo Fedorov talked about last week.
In addition, part of the terminals will be transferred to civil administrations in the recently de-occupied territories, as well as to Ukrzaliznytsia.
Thank you, Poland! And congratulations on the 104th anniversary of Independence!
