What HappenedMusk said on Tuesday that Starlink has resisted Russia’s “jamming & hacking attempts,” even as the Vladimir Putin-led country is ramping up efforts.
Why It MattersSpaceX has donated thousands of satellite internet kits to Ukraine since the country's plea to Musk in February to provide those stations.
Ukrainian Vice Prime Minister Mykhailo Fedorov earlier this month said Starlink has around 150,000 active users per day.
The service beams down high-speed internet via satellites in orbit to Earth, especially to remote areas, including those ravaged by war or natural calamity.
Musk was reportedly close to commercially launching Starlink in Ukraine months ahead of Russia’s invasion.
Starlink has plans to launch 4,425 satellites in orbit by 2024.
