Starlink is coming to Haiti to serve rural and underserved communities with high-speed internet, Resscop & Delaporte, Inc. announced. The company said SpaceX/Starlink is officially registered in Haiti as “Starlink Haiti SA” and has obtained an approval permit to operate freely in Haiti “in accordance with the defined registered Ku band and the required frequencies”.
Resscop & Delaporte extended special thanks to the supporters who helped Starlink bring high-speed wireless Internet service to Haiti. The Conatel team worked tirelessly to make this happen, the company said.
The company released the following statement:
“In today’s world, the need for complex infrastructure is no longer the best economic advantage for underserved countries. The need to provide rural Internet access with affordable service has never been more urgent, especially for places where terrestrial technologies may not reach. Starlink has an active fleet of satellites orbiting the planet, providing consumer-based service.
“Starlink has the capacity and means to support the infrastructure of broadband internet service programs in the country, which in turn will attract services to better support education, health, business development, job creation, agriculture, attraction of international companies, nearshoring, development companies and foreign direct investment.
“Starlink’s services can further support business, government and be complementary to existing terrestrial telecommunications providers. Starlink is ideally suited to support disaster resilience, redundancy and rapid response needs. Starlink considers the establishment of the Digital Acceleration Program to be of extreme importance to underserved communities in Haiti. Using reliable satellite broadband, like the Starlink Low Earth Orbit (LEO) system, can help make affordable broadband a reality for Haiti.
“Starlink’s services will provide Haiti with a unique opportunity to leap into the 21st century.”
“Starlink can provide connectivity that will help meet Haiti’s connectivity goals, reduce the infrastructure investment needed to connect every last mile, and supplement the service areas of traditional ISPs.”
“Haiti’s strongest assets are the people. Today, people in rural areas of Haiti do not have easy access to the Internet. With the services of Starlink, people will have the opportunity to get reliable internet services. They will be able to get remote jobs online, support call centers around the world, and get vocational school programs right from home. They will be able to participate in innovative development programs that will advance their learning abilities to support the economic development of the country. These services will help strengthen the development of Haiti’s economy and its GDP.
“Haiti’s future development is in the hands of those empowered to support its ecosystem.”
“Together, let’s make a difference. A Starlink system can be purchased directly from the Starlink website or through any reseller approved and authorized by the regulator (Conatel).
SpaceX is currently accepting Starlink terminal donations for several categories, including education and humanitarian efforts. Donors can donate to a Starlink cause or donate by choosing an organization and placing the order.
