Earlier this year, Starlink announced price increase which he said was necessary to keep up with rising inflation. With the increase, the Starlink starter kit will now cost customers $599 before shipping and taxes. The monthly service fee has also increased from $99 to $110 per month.

Starlink is noticeably more expensive than other ISP offerings, but for many considering the service, it may be their only option. This is especially true for people living in rural areas who are not served by major ISPs.

SpaceX is constantly adding more satellites to its constellation. next rocket launchwhich will carry 53 more Starlink satellites into low Earth orbit, is scheduled later today from Spaceport 4 East (SLC-4E) at Vandenberg Space Force Base in California.
