Starlink originally cost $99 a month for the service and $499, plus tax, for the Starlink Kit, comprising a satellite dish terminal and a Wi-Fi router. As of September 2022, Starlink starts at $110 per month with a one-time hardware cost of $599.
The company has also shipped thousands of terminals to Ukraine since activating the service in February, to keep the nation's internet running amid Russia's physical and cyberattacks on its internet infrastructure.
But Starlink download and upload speeds have slowed, in part due to the popularity of the service. The FCC recently canceled a nearly $1 billion award to SpaceX for its program to patch up regional broadband. It cited slower download speeds in recent months.
A report from Ookla last week said Starlink speeds slowed down across the globe in Q2 2022. In the US, Starlink's median download speed in Q2 hit just over 62Mbps, down from just under 90Mbps a year ago.
