Fast speeds: Starlink can deliver download speeds of up to 100Mbps and upload speeds of up to 20Mbps. This is much faster than the average internet speed in Nigeria, which is around 25Mbps.

Low latency: Starlink has a latency of around 30ms, which is comparable to the latency of fiber optic internet. This means that you can enjoy smooth streaming, gaming, and video conferencing.

Reliable connection: Starlink is not affected by weather or terrain, so you can count on it to stay connected, even in remote areas. This is in contrast to traditional satellite internet providers, which are often unreliable in bad weather or in rural areas.

Wide coverage: Starlink is available in most parts of Nigeria, including remote areas that are not served by traditional ISPs.

Affordable: The initial cost of the Starlink kit is ₦378,000, and the monthly subscription fee is ₦38,000. This is much more affordable than the cost of traditional satellite internet, which can be upwards of ₦100,000 per month.
