The cost of the service that SpaceX , the businessman's space agency, would be around $ 99 (2,093 Mexican pesos at the current exchange rate) per month and would be operating by the end of the year in the United States and Canada.

According to a leaked email shown by CNBC , Starlink is already in beta testing and that in addition to the $ 99, the user will have to pay $ 499 (about 10,500 Mexican pesos) for a connection kit that includes a terminal to connect to the satellites from home, a mounting tripod and a WiFi router.
