Musk’s Starlink Satellite Service Brings Remote Greece, Islands, Internet

ATHENS – The Starlink broadband service that will connect the remote areas of Greece to the Internet using a satellite – at 60 euros a month ($65.22) for those who can afford it is now fully available in the country.

It is one of Twitter and Tesla owner Elon Musk’s companies and brings connections to areas where it was difficult to reach service, aimed at residents in faraway areas and villa owners, noted Advanced Television

The access doesn’t require a long-term contract and users can “rent” the Starlink equipment for a one-time activation fee of 50 euros ($54.35) plus 15 euros ($16.31) a month fee.

There’s another option to buy the dish, modem and cables for 300 euros ($326.10) that’s a reduction on the previous fee of 450 euros ($489.15) which is a way for Greeks visiting their villages and islands in the summer to hook up and foreigners who own properties and want service.

The full Greek availability extends connectivity to North Macedonia, Bulgaria, Romania, Hungary, the Czech Republic and Poland but not yet to Serbia, Montenegro, Kosovo, Albania, Belarus, Russia or Bosnia/Herzegovina.

Besides browsing and surfing and using the connection for news or entertainment, Musk said that the service can help people who are in life threatening situations in remote areas, potentially saving lives.
