Likewise, there are management fees that are $ 1,420 MXN and the service has a cost of $ 2,299 MXN per month. It should be noted that it is also necessary to pay an advance to set aside the equipment and the connection, so $ 2299 MXN must be deposited. In itself, the cost of entry to Starlink is $ 15,298 MXN.

Although Starlink aims to be a satellite Internet service that reaches speeds of more than 1 Gbps, at this time, and in the case of the Mexican market, it will only offer packages of 100 and 200 Gbps.

Likewise, and like all satellite services, Starlink requires that the installation of the receiving equipment be done in a high area of ​​the house and in a clear area where nothing interferes with the signal. In the same way, it is noted that it requires a clear view of the sky to operate normally, so it is possible that performance may decline in the storm and hurricane season.
