You can sign up for Elon Musks Space X Star Link Satellite Internet from Trinidad and Tobago

Update on 14 JUN 2023 : Starlink has updated their map and order page for Trinidad and Tobago.



 

Update on 1 JUN 2023 : The Minister has approved the concession for Starlink for a period of 10 years. I contacted Starlink via twitter to get an update. If you go to order Starlink now, you can reserve and the website has not been updated as yet, stating, "Order now to reserve your Starlink. Starlink is targeting service in your area starting in Q2 2023. Availability is subject to regulatory approval. Within each coverage area, orders are fulfilled on a first-come, first-served basis." The availability map on Starlink's website also has not been updated as yet.


Update on 19 FEB 2023 : Currently the starlink application is waiting on the Minister in the Ministry of Digital Transformation to approve.

Update on 16 AUG 2022 : TATT put out a notice that they are reviewing their application.


Original blog post : I saw a post on instagram that Star Link satellite internet would be availaible in Trinidad and Tobago in 2022. The screenshot said Star Link is targeting coverage in your area in 2022. Availability is limited. Orders will be fullfilled on a first-come first-served basis. Then a form to make a fully refundable US 99 payment.

I read on TT Weather Center that SpaceX Starlink Satellites Spotted Across T&T Skies

This is great news for persons in remote areas with little or no options for internet. I wonder if TATT was approached for permission by Star Link as I think would be required. I emailed TATT as follows, "Does Star Link (https://www.starlink.com/) need permission to offer service in Trinidad? Have they applied for such?" TATT responded to me on 22 Feb 2021 and in short said no application was received and they would need to apply.

This type of internet is great as a backup connection and during natural disasters. The ping times is also another selling point.
