On Wednesday, Elon Musk’s SpaceX announced that the Philippines now had access to Starlink, its satellite internet service.
In the past, Starlink has discussed selling satellite internet to Filipinos with the national government.
The National Telecommunications Commission accelerated Starlink Internet Services Philippines Inc.’s clearance last year as it is.
Low-Earth Orbit Satellites are sent into orbit by SpaceX’s Starlink to provide an internet connection. It is claimed that connectivity may be made to even far-off places.
Consumers face a high entry-level cost, nevertheless. The equipment costs $599 per unit and connecting to the services is priced at $99 per month.
In the Philippines, internet access is still a contentious topic. Linking to services supplied by large telecom providers will cost users a premium while internet speeds lag behind those offered in neighboring nations.
