Elon Musk’s satellite internet company Starlink is available in the Dominican Republic.
The Dominican Republic joins the list of countries where you can connect to Starlink, SpaceX’s satellite internet service, one of the companies run by billionaire Elon Musk. Thus, the neighboring republic becomes the first independent Caribbean state to provide this service.
The company announced this on its Twitter account last Friday. “StarLink is now available in the Dominican Republic! Excited to expand high speed broadband internet access in the Caribbean,” the tweet read.
Visiting SpaceX headquarters for the Americas Summit last June, President Luis Abinader assured that agreements with Starlink-SpaceX will provide “broadband, low latency, and low-cost global coverage.” “When the permit is approved, our country will be the first in the Caribbean to provide this low-cost Internet service to remote communities, and the fourth in Latin America,” he commented.
In the Dominican Republic, Starlink offers a connection speed of 200 Mbps. To use this service, you will need to pay 7,080 pesos as a monthly fee, and the cost of the equipment kit and its installation is 38,900 pesos.
