With its archipelagic nature, the Philippines poses challenges when it comes to connectivity. However, satellite technology emerges as the ideal solution, allowing access to even the most remote and inaccessible terrains such as towering mountains, isolated islands, and offshore locations.
PT&T (PSE:PTT) is at the forefront of this advancement, joining forces with NetLinkz (ASX:NET), a leading Australian technology firm specializing in secure virtual network solutions. Together, they bring Starlink, SpaceX’s revolutionary satellite-based internet service, to customers across the Philippines. This strategic partnership aims to empower businesses in remote areas with stable, high-speed internet, unlocking endless possibilities in the digital world.
Starlink has gained global attention for its cutting-edge technology and has now expanded its services to the Philippines. The service utilizes a network of low Earth orbit satellites to deliver fast internet speeds and low latency, revolutionizing internet connectivity for users.
“We are thrilled to bring Starlink to the Philippines and offer our customers with the need for connectivity with a reliable internet solution,” said James Velasquez, PT&T President and CEO. “Our partnership with Netlinkz allows us to provide high-speed internet access to areas where traditional broadband services are limited or unavailable.”
Customers in the Philippines have various purchasing options available to them for obtaining the Starlink kit, now including direct purchase from PT&T. This ensures accessibility and convenience for its valued customers.
Once customers avail of the Starlink kit, they will have access to various monthly plans tailored for Enterprise and Maritime customers, each with different pricing options based on their specific requirements. These plans will offer data caps ranging from 50GB to 6TB, and beyond the cap, customers will continue to enjoy unlimited throttled data. The monthly plans promise peak download speeds of up to 350Mbps and upload speeds of up to 40Mbps.
Recognizing the increasing importance of dependable internet access in today’s digital age, PT&T is committed to bridging the connectivity gap in the Philippines. With the introduction of Starlink, users can now enjoy fast, consistent, and affordable internet connectivity that was previously inaccessible anytime, anywhere.
“We are proud to partner with PT&T to bring Starlink to the Philippines,” NetLinkz Managing Director and CEO James Tsiolis stated. “This collaboration aligns with our mission to provide innovative and secure network solutions. We are excited to contribute to the digital transformation of the country, empowering Filipinos with advanced internet capabilities.”
