A government official says that about 150,000 people use the Starlink internet service in the country each day.

There are around 150K daily active users of Starlink, according to rough data, according to Mykhailo Fedorov.

Fedorov said that this is crucial support for Ukraine's infrastructure.

The Starlink network of about 2,000 satellites is designed to deliver high-speed internet anywhere on the planet. The company said in March that there are about 250,000 Starlink subscribers.

The daily active user count is different from the number of subscribers or Starlink terminals in Ukraine, as multiple users would be able to connect to each terminal.

NBC News reported last week that there are more than 10,000 Starlink terminals that provide service to Ukraine. They came from a lot of different sources. In April, the United States Agency for International Development told CNBC that a range of stakeholders contributed over $15 million worth of hardware and transportation services to deliver 5,000 Starlink terminals to Ukraine.

Musk caught the attention of Fedorov via a post on his verified account shortly after Russia invaded Ukraine, with the government official sending a plea for assistance after a suspected cyberattack disrupted previous satellite internet service and the Russian military began destroying communications infrastructure.
