 Elon Musk rushes to the aid of the people of Tonga

After the tsunami devastated the island nation of Tonga, the inhabitants of the country were left without the Internet.

Reuters on Twitter published information that it will be necessary to restore the Internet in Tonga about a month. Elon Musk appeared in the comments and asked if the inhabitants of the country could tell if SpaceX needed to send Starlink terminals for the Internet.


Tongan people around the world have commented and stated that there is such a need.

Elon Musk wrote that it is difficult to provide assistance now, because there are not enough satellites, and some Starlink devices already serve the region, which includes Tonga. Therefore, the businessman needed “clear confirmation”.

Local politician Lord Fusitua also confirmed that Musk's help would be welcome and asked for the businessman's direct contact to coordinate actions.
