Starlink expands to over 300 islands in Fiji

Elon Musk’s SpaceX’s Starlink has expanded to the 300+ islands in Fiji from today.

Starlink was granted a license to provide internet services in Fiji in mid-November 2023.

Deputy Prime Minister and Minister for Trade, Co-operatives, SMEs, and Communications, Manoa Kamikamica says the licensing of Starlink for commercial use is a game changer for Fiji as it strengthens our resilience in providing connectivity during natural disasters — this also serves the purpose of the Fiji Government’s efforts in connecting the unconnected population in maritime communities without significant upfront capital costs incurred.

Starlink says the services align with the Fijian Competition and Consumer Commission’s goal of implementing a competitive, fair, and dynamic market for internet services in Fiji.

Along with its expansion in Fiji, SpaceX celebrated the 99th market in which Starlink offers internet services. Indonesia is the most recent country to receive SpaceX’s Starlink internet connections.

Elon Musk launched Starlink in Indonesia with a visit to Bali over the weekend. He expressed his excitement for Starlink’s arrival in Indonesia, specifically in low connectivity areas.

Musk says they are focusing this event on Starlink and the benefits that connectivity brings to remote islands. Fijivillage
