SpaceX may sell Starlink satellite-internet dishes far below cost

  • SpaceX is charging $99 a month to test users of Starlink, the aerospace company’s new satellite-internet service, plus a $499 starter kit.
  • The starter kit contains a user terminal to talk to Starlink spacecraft, and key to its seamless operation is a phased-array antenna — an electronic component that typically costs more than $10,000.
  • SpaceX is likely paying much less to manufacture Starlink terminals, but two telecommunications experts believe the company is heavily subsidizing the cost for users, and eating $1,000 to $2,000 (or more) on each.
  • “Getting the terminal out there is great PR for gaining market access,” Tim Farrar, an industry expert, told Business Insider. “It also impresses potential (and current) investors and makes life difficult for competitors.”
  • But analysts say heavy long-term subsidization could majorly hinder SpaceX’s ability to break even on Starlink, let alone profit from the venture.
