One of the hot news in Nigeria is the news of Starlink by Elon Musk In Nigeria. Yesterday, it was said in that SpaceX had a visit with the Nigerian Communications Commission (NCC) to discuss about bringing in their Satellite Internet into the country.
From my research, the Starlink beta service would cost $99 a month, which is about #47,000 naira, with $499 upfront payment for the hardware in the starter kit.
Now here comes my question. Can Nigerians afford this? I totally doubt that as with this price, only those who are at the rich class would be able to afford getting this and why is this so?
This is because the price of this kit is far higher than the minimum wage in Nigeria which is $79 (#37,000 naira) and the truth is that many of the jobs available in this country pays far less than the minimum wage on a 7am to 7pm job.
Truth, having this in our country would be nice but the thing is we cannot afford it. Probably and Hopefully, the price would be reduced when they are out of the beta phase.
