SpaceX's Starlink satellite internet service has now rolled out to 32 countries, the company said Thursday. The hardware can ship "immediately" to areas where the service is available.

A map shared by Elon Musk's space company shows that Starlink is available in much of the US, Europe and New Zealand, in addition to chunks of Canada, Australia and South America. Many of the remaining countries and areas show availability coming in 2023. This includes some parts of the US and all of Africa.

Starlink raised its prices in March, jumping to $110 per month, up from the original rate of $99. The one-time hardware fee for Starlink's receiver dish rose to $599, from $499.

Locating local internet providers

The service, which has been available since fall 2020, offers the promise of higher speeds and lower latency than other satellite providers. After a few years of launches, the company has amassed a constellation of more than 2,000 low Earth orbit satellites.
