Starlink, Elon Musk’s internet-from-space service offered by SpaceX, is notifying customers with some good news: Their monthly subscriptions have been reduced in response to “local market conditions.”

I received one of these notifications for my Starlink RV service which normally costs me €124 per month in the Netherlands. It reads: “Effective 8/24/2022, Starlink will reduce your monthly service charge to $105.” Well okay.

The price cut is welcome at a time when everything else is getting more expensive due to inflation. “The price cut will affect your local market conditions and is intended to reflect the purchasing power of our customers,” the announcement reads.

Others report similar discounts at locations around the world. For example on reddit a person in the UK reports a reduction in their monthly fee to £75 (decreased from £89), Mexico to $1,100 MXN (decrease from $2,299 MXN), and Germany €80 (decreased from €100). Users in Chile and Brazil report price reductions of about 50 percent. A sampling of Starlink’s respective service pages in each country supports the above claims.

The situation in the US, where the dollar is appreciating against foreign currencies, is less clear. One person in Nevada reports that he got a discount of up to $85 (was $110) but Starlink’s own pages still show a monthly subscription price of $110 after a one-time $599 purchase of the hardware kit. A few other people who claim to be from the US note that they didn’t get a price cut.

So far, there has been no reduction in speed or the addition of strict data limits after the discounted plans.

SpaceX and T-Mobile will host a joint event later today where Elon Musk will be in attendance to announce plans to “increase connectivity.” It’s unclear if the event is related to the new pricing.
