In the event of a blackout, a network will be deployed in the cities of Ukraine Starlink. Poland handed over another 1,570 Starlink terminals to Ukraine.
They want to deploy this network throughout Ukraine, so that even during the blackout, Ukrainians have a connection, as well as on Ukrzaliznytsia trains, the press service of the Ministry of Digital Transformation reports.
Mintsifry: “Now the terminals help Ukrainians to keep in touch in the de-occupied territories and in the war zones. In the liberated cities and villages, public Wi-Fi points will operate thanks to the terminals, where residents can gather and connect to the Internet.
We also plan to deploy the Starlink network not only in the de-occupied territories, but also in all cities of Ukraine. This is necessary so that people have access to communication even during a blackout. In addition, we will provide Ukrzaliznytsia with terminals so that passengers and employees can be in touch on the road.”
The agency said that since the start of the full-scale invasion, Ukraine has received more than 20,000 Starlink terminals from donors and partners, of which 5,000 have been supported by the Polish government.
