JSC Ukrzaliznytsia (UZ) has already tested a pilot project for installing Starlink satellite Internet on trains, Yuriy Shchigol, head of the State Special Communications Service, said in an interview with Liga.tech.
“When we contacted Starlink technical specialists after testing and showed how it works, even they were surprised that we were able to use Starlink in this way. According to its technical characteristics, it should not work at such speeds. But it works and provides services,” he said.
According to him, Internet from Starlink will be launched on Ukrzaliznytsia trains by the end of this year.
Shchigol noted that 12 thousand Starlink terminals are currently operating in Ukraine, which is about 20% of their total number in Europe.
