After Ukraine's SOS, Elon Musk Activates Starlink Satellite Broadband

Elon Musk said Saturday his company SpaceX's Starlink satellite broadband service had been activated in Ukraine

"Starlink service is now active in Ukraine," Musk tweeted, adding "more terminals en route."

The tweet came some 10 hours after Ukrainian Minister of Digital Transformation Mykhailo Fedorov urged Musk to provide Starlink services to Ukraine
