Starlink, via its newly created Twitter account, just announced that it launched in Trinidad and Tobago. 🇹🇹
The Residential package, Starlink’s most commonly adopted plan, is priced at TTD365 (~ US$54) per month, which is roughly in line with pricing in surrounding markets.
Additionally, subscribers pay a one-time hardware fee of TTD3,900 (~ US$575), plus shipment and handling fees of TTD154 (~ US$24).
Make sure to check our global price list for an updated version of all the countries Starlink is available in as well as how much it charges in each of those locations.
Around 10 days ago, Starlink received an operating license from the Telecommunications Authority of Trinidad and Tobago (TATT), thus enabling it to legally operate.
It was granted a ‘Type 2 Concession for the Provision of a Public Domestic Fixed (via satellite) Telecommunications Network and Public Domestic Fixed Telecommunications Services on a National Geographic Scale’, valid for ten years.
Interestingly, Starlink wasn’t the only internet provider that received a license. Blue Mobile Network, operated by STAR, will soon introduce its own mobile network.
Meanwhile, the specifically incorporated company, dubbed Starlink Internet Services Trinidad and Tobago, is based in Port of Spain.
Starlink enters a relatively modest market opportunity given Trinidad and Tobago’s total population of 1.56 million people and internet penetration rate of around 71 percent.
However, Trinidad and Tobago is also a fairly popular sailing destination, thus giving subscribers of Starlink’s new Mobility option another destination to enjoy unlimited high-speed data.
