The official said that Ukrzaliznytsia has already run the pilot project by installing Starlink transceivers on certain trains.
Yurii Shchyhol said that Ukrainian experts shared test results with Starlink technical team. "Even they were surprised that we were able to use Starlink in this way.

According to Ukrinform, operations of over 3,000 base stations of mobile network operators have been completely or partially suspended in Ukraine due to the ongoing war, while over 20% of the telecommunications infrastructure has been damaged or destroyed.
