Starlink reduces its monthly internet plan in Dominican Republic
The Internet service Starlink, owned by billionaire Elon Musk, announced Thursday that it would reduce the monthly cost of its Internet plan in the Dominican Republic to compete with companies offering the same services.
From now on, the price to be paid monthly for the service will be RD$2,900. It is recalled that the cost of the equipment necessary to receive the Wifi network is RD$27,000.
The price reduction was announced through a communiqué from the global internet services company, which states that the changes were made considering the national market and the purchasing power of Dominicans.
Probably 10 megabits , unstable and unaffordable, those in remote areas don’t have for food, never mind for sat-link…We are rearranging chairs on deck of Titanic…while those in charge are lining their pockets with “sat-link” deals…!!!
Those in remote areas who don’t have for food should not be thinking about sat-internet. This was, obviously, not a service everyone would be able to afford. There are cheaper, local options if having internet connectivity is the concern.
It would be interesting to know where available, speeds/prices, and setup costs.
