SpaceX announced today it continued its expansion of Starlink, its satellite internet service, to North Macedonia, according to a report.

The official SpaceX Twitter account announced the news, saying they were “excited to further access to high-speed, low-latency broadband internet in the Balkans.”

According to the Starlink website, customers will have to pay MKD39,700 for Dishy McFlatface and related hardware and pay MKD6,570 monthly for the service. Shipping and handling add another MKD3,650 to the overall price.

People in North Macedonia will have to pay MKD49,920 to build and run a Starlink Antenna for the company’s satellite internet service.

Starlink is now available in 33 countries worldwide and had nearly 500,000 at the beginning of June, according to an all-hands SpaceX meeting earlier this month.

Part of the reason the company now has nearly half a million subscribers is due to their new Starlink for RV service, which racked up more than 30,000 orders in the first month of its being available.

SpaceX announced last May that it launched a Starlink internet service option for RV owners.

SpaceX CEO Elon Musk said that the company is working on ways to allow users to use the service when in motion. It’s unclear if users must sign up for the service or whether SpaceX will start charging all users who want to move the satellite dishes.

Last March, the company said it had an estimated 250,000 users in 25 countries. The company also has an estimated 2,000 satellites within Earth’s lower orbit. This service was designed to provide high-speed internet with speeds up to 100 Mbps up to 200 Mbps to users who live in remote regions.
