The main advantage of Starlink is that it allows high speeds and low latency. Thanks to its speeds you will be able to make calls, online games, transmission and other activities of high data speed.

First you will have to request the service online, once you do, a set will arrive at your home with a power source, base, Starlink, WiFi router and cables. The goal is to make this installation as simple as possible. The antenna should be placed in an area that has a clear view of the sky. Avoid obstacles such as trees, nor light poles can cover the signals of Starlink satellites. Therefore, it is advisable to install it in an elevated area.

Then you will have to connect it to the outlet. Remember that the antenna must be pointing to the sky so that the signal reaches the Wi-Fi router and the house. SpaceX, Elon Musk’s space company, will create a network of satellites that will cover the entire earth. They will be in charge of sending internet signals via electromagnetic waves. The costs of this service are already published on the Starlink website. The installation kit costs around 499 euros, plus 60 euros for shipping. The monthly payment of the service is 99 euros. Which means that in Colombia, the total price that must be paid to start with Starlink will be about three million pesos.
