Elon Musk (Tesla) takes sides with Iranian protesters

With the agreement of the American government decided to “counter the censorship of the Iranian government”, in the words of the Secretary of State, Antony Blinken, Friday September 23, Elon Musk, boss of Tesla, made it known that he was going to put his Starlink satellite broadband service available to Iranian protesters.

As usual, Tehran countered all protests by blocking Internet communications and organizing massive counter-demonstrations. So, so that the demonstrators can exchange with each other and count each other, Elon Musk proposes to bypass access to Instagram and WhatsApp.

Can the service be deployed for potential users in Iran without hardware, namely a specific router and antenna?? Usage will tell.
