Good news for fellow Europeans and travelers alike: Starlink announced that it just launched in Albania.

That means Starlink is now available in a total of 73 countries. Just a little less than 2 weeks ago, it was introduced in Argentina.

Starlink was very active through 2023, launching in 25 countries, including Eswatini, the Maldives, Benin, Georgia, and many more.

2024 has been a little quieter thus far as Starlink has only been introduced in one market, namely Mongolia and Argentina.

That said, this is somewhat of a natural progression since there are simply less countries where Starlink isn’t available.

Moreover, some markets, such as India or many countries across Africa, remain somewhat hostile towards Starlink (or at least hesitant to issue the required licenses).

Coming back to Albania: the Residential plan, Starlink’s most popular option, is priced at ALL 6,500 per month (~ USD 70).

The hardware will cost another ALL 44,900 (~ USD 500), plus ARS 31,000 for shipment and handling.

Feel free to check out all the different prices that Starlink charges by visiting our global price list.

Starlink should be particularly useful in many of the small rural villages that attract tourists and are traditionally plagued by poor infrastructure.

On the other side, the price tag, especially for the hardware, will likely hinder adoption in a country where the average worker makes less than USD 1,000 per month.
