More competition awaits MTN, Glo, others, in Nigeria as Elon Musk introduces low-cost Starlink-Mini dish

Story from Uji A. ILIYASU

SpaceX is set to launch the much-awaited Starlink-Mini dish, an innovative gadget that promises to revolutionise internet accessibility, especially in underprivileged areas.

Starlink Mini is lightweight and simple to assemble.

The new product aims to give people in isolated areas—where physical connections are unfeasible and mobile connections only offer restricted bandwidth—access to satellite-based internet service.

The Starlink mini is regarded as a game-changer and substantially smaller and more portable than the existing 23.4-inch by 15.07-inch Starlink dish, measuring only 11.4 inches by 9.8 inches.

According to Space X, “It is lightweight and simple to assemble, weighing only 2.4 pounds (or 3.4 pounds when the kickstand and DC cord are included). It is expected that users will benefit from the device’s unparalleled flexibility and convenience since it is made to fit comfortably in a backpack. Due to its portability, it is considered the perfect travel companion for people who live in distant places or work remotely.”

According to the most recent Internet service provider (ISP) data made public by the Nigerian Communications Commission (NCC), Elon Musk’s Starlink internet business ranked third among all ISPs in Nigeria in terms of total subscribers during the fourth quarter (Q4) of 2023.
