“We are excited to finally introduce Starlink to the Philippine market by Q1 2023,” said Anthony Almeda, Vice Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Data Lake, Inc., a Manila-based firm he co-owns with tycoon Henry Sy, Jr.


Almeda said in a statement the high-speed, low-latency broadband internet service will be “game-changing” for the Southeast Asian archipelago, where broadband coverage is patchy.



In the Philippines, only seven out of every 100 people have fixed broadband subscriptions, lagging behind regional peers like Singapore, Malaysia, and Thailand, data from the World Bank shows.


Data Lake said Philippine customers would have to shell out an initial $599 per unit and $99 for monthly connectivity service for a download speed of 200 Mbps.
