Elon Musk launched Starlink as an internet-from-space service. SpaceX, the company of the service, uses 3,108 satellites to provide internet to users. It’s known that the company produces six satellites per day. However, its prices were a bit higher than other internet providers. That’s why Starlink reduced its prices in many regions despite the inflation in the world. Here are the details about Starlink prices.
SpaceX lowers prices of Starlink up to 50 percent in some areas
The internet provider makes this price reduction to offer an available price to local market conditions according to Elon Musk. While inflation is rising in many countries, Starlink’s this step makes users welcome. In the announcement, “The price reduction factors in your local market conditions and is meant to reflect parity in purchasing power across our customers,” the company says.
For example, a Starlink RV user normally pays €124 each month in the Netherlands. However, the monthly service fee is reduced to €105 according to the company’s announcement. Others are also reporting the same price reduction in locations around the world. About a week ago, the company lowered subscription prices to €50 from €99 in France. It was an effective step for users. Now, we can see the reduction in many countries.
While the UK monthly fee lowers to £75 from £89, Mexico prices down to $1,100 MXN from $2.299 MXN, and users in Germany will pay €80 instead €100. In some countries, the price is down up to 50 percent. For instance, the users in Chile and Brazil are reporting their internet service fees to get reduced by around 50%. These price reductions can be approved on Starlink’s website.
Starlink will not make a reduction in speed or the addition of strict data caps with the cut of monthly subscription prices according to the mentions. Additionally, there is news about SpaceX and T-Mobile‘s collaboration to increase connectivity. However, we don’t know whether it has any relation to the new prices.
