SpaceX Offers Starlink Kit at Half Price for First-Time Kenyan Clients

Billionaire Elon Musk’s satellite internet firm, Starlink, has announced a 55.6 percent reduction in the price of the installation hardware kit in the Kenyan market in a promotion that runs until May.

During the offer window, Kenyans will purchase the hardware equipment at Sh39,500, down from the Sh89,000 asking price during normal sales.

“SpaceX’s Starlink has an offer that applies to all of Kenya for a limited time—over 55 percent off your Starlink kit (now Sh39,500, was Sh89,000),” reads a promotional message displayed on the firm’s website.

An analysis last October revealed that Kenya and Mozambique are the top-most charged markets for the installation of the Internet compared to the other four African countries where the technology had established a presence at the time.

At the time, Starlink was operating in Kenya, Nigeria, Rwanda, Zambia, Malawi, and Mozambique, with a spot check showing there existed a difference of up to Sh36,067 between the highest-paying country (Mozambique) and the one with the lowest installation fee (Nigeria), representing a 38.2 percent gap.

The firm would later effect rapid expansion into more African countries as it sought to stamp its footprint and tap the vast potential in emerging economies.
