Starlink, the satellite internet connection operated by Elon Musk’s SpaceX which announced its availability in the Philippines last month, has been spotted in Camiguin, more specifically at the Provincial Capitol Building. Starlink offers high-speed, low-latency broadband internet in remote and rural locations across the globe. At Php2,700/month with a one-time hardware cost of Php29,320 for internet speeds of up to 500 Mbps, it’s a tempting offer especially with the country’s slow internet connection.

Starlink only needs an open sky to connect to the internet.
