Starlink is nice but I wish they accepted payment in local currency. Foreign exchange is hard to come by in Trinidad.

is there a list of certified instalation technicians in Jamaica for Starlink?

Not sure, but I think its an easy installation.

I read the post but it doesn’t say how much to expect to pay customs for clearance. Also what if I got the mobile option would I still need to instead it

As Oshane said, it’s an easy install however if you’d like to mount it permanently somewhere such as your rooftop, you should look for a rooftop specialist to do that.

The fee from Starlink takes into consideration the customs fee so you’ll have nothing additional to pay. Also if you go for the mobile option you don’t need to install it.
