Starlink and Jumia Join Forces to Enhance Internet Access in Africa

Jumia, the leading e-commerce platform in Africa, has announced an agreement with Starlink, a satellite internet service, to retail the Starlink Residential Kit in Africa.

With this partnership, Jumia aims to bridge the digital divide by delivering Starlink’s high-speed, low-latency internet to previously underserved regions of Africa. The agreement will initially cover Nigeria, with plans for expansion to Kenya, and thereafter to the remaining African countries where Jumia operates.

We are thrilled to be the first company on the continent to join forces with Starlink to expand this groundbreaking technology in Africa. This agreement aligns perfectly with our mission of using technology to improve lives across Africa. By expanding access to Starlink’s internet service through the Jumia platform, individuals and communities can be empowered with high-speed, low-latency internet access, driving economic growth and unlocking new opportunities,said Hisham ElGabry, Group Chief Commercial Office, Jumia

Starlink’s broadband internet service can revolutionize the way Africans connect, eliminating the limitations imposed by traditional infrastructure and unlocking a wealth of educational, entrepreneurial, and entertainment possibilities. The reliable high-speed connectivity can empower users to access online resources, participate in e-learning platforms, engage in e-commerce, and enhance their communication capabilities.

Jumia’s expansive reach, coupled with Starlink’s satellite constellation engineered by SpaceX, can pave the way for millions of Africans to experience the transformative power of high-speed internet. The collaboration represents a significant milestone in Africa’s digital evolution and underscores Jumia’s commitment to spearheading technological advancements on the continent.
