Home Depot starts selling Starlink satellite Internet sets on installments with store pickup option
The full Starlink set needed to access Elon Musk's SpaceX satellite Internet constellation has now been made available at Home Depot. The giant home improvement retailer is carrying the dish and router for the same US$599 price that SpaceX is selling them at on its own web store, to which it also adds shipping and handling charges.
Moreover, those who don't wish to shell out the US$599 Starlink Internet kit price directly, can pay on a 12-month installment plan at just US$50 a month. Needless to say, that outlay would be on top of the actual satellite Internet price of $120/month which now grants rather decent Internet speeds even in peak usage hours. Heavy users who often go past the fair Starlink satellite Internet downloads threshold may be throttled during peak hours, though.
The Starlink kit consists of the actual satellite Internet dish, a WiFi router, the power supply, the connection cables, and the base to install the set on. Home Depot is only carrying the Starlink setups in select stores as Starlink coverage is not everywhere in the US. Future Starlink subscribers also have the option to order the kit to their local store and then simply swing by and pick it up. Home Depot, however, is only accepting in-store Starlink equipment returns back.
