NTC approves of Starlink’s registration in the Philippines

One step ahead of experiencing Satellite Internet!

NTC has approved of Starlink in the Philippines. The company is registered as a value-added service (VAS) provider allowing them to implement broadband and satellite technology throughout the country.

Starlink uses Low Earth Orbit (LEO) Satellites that could potentially connect users even in the most remote areas of the country where cellular towers and traditional broadband technology could not reach.

Starlink would cover remote and rural areas where current internet technology could not reach, or is underserved. It is undisclosed when it could be released. Trade Secretary Ramon Lopez said that the earliest time would be around 30th June, just before President Duterte’s tenure ends.

The company could provide between 100 to 200Mbps internet connection using said LEO satellites.
