This is in furtherance of efforts by the company to gain more share of the Nigerian Internet Service Provider (ISP) market.
With the price slash, Starlink’s hardware now costs N299,500, down from N378,000 it was sold for.
The price slash did not, however, affect the the monthly subscription which remains unchanged at N38,000 per month.
Starlink Nigeria said it will also offer a partial refund to its Nigerian customers who ordered the hardware ‘within the last 30’ days, but said the discount offer will end on November 15.
According to the ISP data released by the Nigerian Communications Commission (NCC), Starlink Nigeria is now one of the leading ISPs in Nigeria in terms of customer numbers.
As of the end of June, Starlink Nigeria’s customer base stood at 6,756.
The company has recorded these impressive figures in spite its higher cost compared to local ISPs, which have been operating in the country fopr many years.
Although Starlink officially announced its presence in Nigeria in January this year, Nigerians have been pre-ordering its hardware since last year. The company, which initially quoted its prices in dollars at $600 for the hardware and $43 for the subscription, changed to naira at its official announcement.
