Cool. I'll get this in the next few months. I pay around 19k/month for 90gb on Swift and the speed is shitty.

This is nice.

My quote in the linked thread refers:
rookidmart:
$43 (~₦19k; ₦32k) monthly for unlimited data is not bad. Way cheaper than the competition.

Assuming an average speed of ~150mbps (18MBPS) for which FiberOne and iPNX charge for ~₦62,000


However, the installation costs are steep: $600 (₦267,000 at bank rate; ₦450,000 at black market rate) vs ~₦50,000 for FOB or iPNX.

Reliability is a concern here though - would it work well in bad weather? Rains would start next year so I'll be waiting for your feedback by then.

Thanks for sharing.

If they're pricing in naira at official rates then although the setup fee is more expensive than contemporary fiber offerings (ipnx, fiberone, et al.), the value is in reliability and cheaper internet.

The speedtest screenshot above suggests >200mbps for ~₦19k which the competitors do not offer.
Fiberone and Ipnx both max out at 152Mbps and 150Mbps for ₦66,750 and ₦62,350 respectively.

It is worthy to note that Ipnx offers Gigabit internet (1000mbps) under its FOS Xtreme plans (FOS extreme 1000) but that would set you back ₦268,750 monthly, which is basically the one-time cost of the Starlink hardware.

If Starlink can prove its mettle by offering consistently fast internet (per Elon Musk, planned speed is 10gbps) at these relatively low prices, and resilience in bad weather conditions then it is poised to take over the market.

A death knell for traditional fiber offerings would be if Starlink offered a way to pay for the hardware costs in installments from your monthly subscription fee.

Has anyone made the payment in naira?

Do they have a bank account to transfer to?

If payment is online via their normal channel, it will not work because it will be based on dollar not naira.

I don't think it manipulates IP. If it does, it would have been sold out

I did not finalise the transaction after receiving OTP from my bank.

I'm seeing dollar there so I don't think any naira denominated card will allow the transaction.

That official rate won't work

me too. I have tried both eco bank and access bank ATM cards and it declined my payment. Why will they change to Naira payment when banks won't acknowledge the payment. What kind of scam is this?
