SpaceX announced today that Starlink internet service is now available in the Philippines. Those interested can go to Starlink’s website and input their location to find out if it is available in their area.
Last week, we reported that Starlink will be available in the Philippines in late 2024 for residential customers, hindered by the chip shortage needed for their satellite dishes. Apparently, that wasn’t the case as the SpaceX division is now offering its services in the country.
Starlink offers speeds of 50 to 200 Mbps. They require an upfront fee of ₱29,320 for the hardware, with an estimated shipping time of 2 to 3 weeks. At the same time, the subscription fee is ₱2,700 per month after the 30-day trial period ends. And the service has no contract period.
Meanwhile, Enterprise kits will retail for ₱201,600 with a monthly subscription starting at ₱28,000.
