New Starlink Premium 500 Mbps Internet Tier Debuts with $500 per Month Price Tag

Starlink Introduces a New Premium 500 Mbps Internet Tier, at an Astronomical Price

Starlink unveils a new premium internet 500 Mbps plan targeting businesses in remote locations that costs $500 per month…

Elon Musk’s Starlink internet service is rolling out a Premium Tier that can provide up to 500 Mbps. That’s twice the bandwidth that can currently be achieved with the standard service. But, it comes with a substantial price. However, it’s not for everyday consumers. Rather, it’s intended to benefit businesses or enterprise customers that are located in remote regions with poor and/or little infrastructure.

New Starlink Premium 500 Mbps Internet Tier Debuts with $500 per Month Price Tag

The new Starlink 500 Mbps tier will charge $2,500 for all of the required hardware, alongside a $500 deposit fee and a $500 monthly subscription service. While that sounds out-of-this-world expensive, it’s actually not as costly as what some businesses are currently paying. For example, a gold mining operation in Alaska was paying more than $8,000 per month for a pitiful 2 Mbps speed and 750 ms latency. So, Starlink’s new service will be a huge improvement. Starlink writes on its website:

“Starlink Premium delivers the same low latency with higher throughput allocation to serve small offices of 10-20 users, storefronts, and residential locations across the globe. Starlink Premium users can expect download speeds between 150 Mbps and 500 Mbps and latency as low as 20 ms in most locations.”
