    Starlink Cost

    Unlimited Satellite Internet now available in Gardner MA and some area towns

    Elon Musk’s venture Starlink Satellite Internet is available to Gardner residents, and other area towns such as Winchendon, Phillipston, and Templeton.  Currently, the price is $110 per month for residential plus the cost of equipment.  Other satellite services are available to Gardner, but here is the difference: the bandwidth limit and latency.  Starlink offers unlimited internet while others have considerable limits, making the use of streaming apps not feasible in the past.  With Starlink,  you can do whatever  you did before with Cable internet.    Cost is not cheap, but it is a viable alternative, and a great backup for any business relying on the World Wide Web.   Note that Fitchburg and Leominster still have to wait.   There is more information on their website and you can check your exact address for availability.   CLICK HERE.

    We checked out exact cost. You’ll pay a total of $686.44 upfront for equipment and then billing will start within about 2 weeks of shipping out to you. Currently $110 monthly.
