Elon Musk says Starlink stays on and he will keep doing “good deeds’


SpaceX and Tesla CEO Elon Musk says the Starlink internet system in Ukraine will stay on. And we should all do good deeds.

 The day before Musk took to Twitter to explain that the company wouldn’t be able to supply the $20 million a month service to the war-torn country “indefinitely.” 

Musk wrote on Twitter: “The hell with it. Even though Starlink is still losing money & other companies are getting billions of taxpayers $, we’ll just keep funding Ukraine govt for free.” 

Elon Musk may be the only private citizen to have done such “good deeds” for another country. It may well be the largest and least appreciated good deed ever.

Good deeds are expensive

On Saturday, the tech billionaire responded to a comment on Twitter saying that “no good deed goes unpunished”, and adding “Even so, we should still do good deeds”.

From February to date SpaceX, a private company has provided over 1 billion dollars in free service to the country of Ukraine.
