Mozambique gets Starlink before South Africa for R903 per month

All things considered, they probably need it more than we do. Hopefully it is here before the end of the year.
 
Can you register an account only with Starlink?

i.e Could you get a kit in SA, register an account only using a Mozam address and a vpn, and if Starlink ever do enforce their 2 month roaming limit, simply delink the dish from that account and register another (rinse wash and repeat as it's month-to-month)
 
If you live along the north eastern side of SA...how much to run a cable from the nearest neighbour across the border?
 
Lekker now the okes sitting and suiping R&R's in Ponta can watch YT the next morning while trying to regain their eyesight from that Tipitinto.
Sounds like a party to me ...

Why do you need to run a cable? Just get a starlink setup, and Moz is likely to get a ground station soon(ish) and that will reduce latency quite significantly.

Swaziland will be even closer. Can't seem to find any speedtest.net servers there though, when Lesotho has.

In any of the "urban" areas of Moz their data has been way cheaper and on par bandwidth-wise than here in SA for quite some time already. Not surprised they have Starlink before us

Problem with Swaziland is that the vast majority of their physical links will be back into SA so they would be almost entirely reliant on SA networks, and for me one of the benefits of something like Starlink is the possibility of not touching the SA networks at all should the shyte really hit the fan.

I'm sure there will be redundancy. Or they will just use satellite backhaul. Latency will be worse but it won't just stop working.
 
Lesotho is perfect as they're sort of in the middle of the country.
this, as then what stops somebody setting up an operation in Lesotho shipping the Kits across the Border to SA,
and somebody using it inside SA proper.

all just a cash and greed grab by the ANC.
