Many enterprising intermediaries bought promotional equipment and resold it to Ukraine at a full price. It is noted that after they refuse it, and eventually the operator stops servicing such terminals.
It is also known that a large number of stolen Starlinks are sold to Ukraine. Experts say that tens of thousands of terminals are under threat of shutdown.
