Starlink Is Now Available In The Philippines
Starlink, the satellite internet service owned by Elon Musk's SpaceX, is now available in the Philippines.
Starlink is said to run at 50 to 500 Mbps. It's also said to provide smooth internet connection during instances that it's otherwise unavailable, like in a flight or while at sea.
The satellite service's hardware costs P29,320, while subscription fee is at P2,700 monthly. There's also a deposit worth P2,700 upon ordering.
The hardware takes about two to three weeks to ship.
On its website, Starlink says users may try the satellite service for 30 days and if they're not satisfied, they may return the hardware for a full refund.
To order Starlink, head over to its official website, and type in your location to see if it is available. Then you will be redirected to the order page, which will require your Contact Information and Shipping Address.
The Starlink app is also available on iOS and Android to help customize settings, receive updates, access Support, and see real time performance data.
While wired connection through traditional internet service providers might be more accessible for many urban internet users, Starlink might be an alternative worth trying out in places that cannot easily get service.
