Starlink is permitted to operate in the following frequencies: 14000MHz-14500MHz and 10700MHz-12700MHz.

In Latin America, Starlink operates in the Central American nations of El Salvador, Panama and Guatemala, Honduras will see access in Q4 this year and Belize is set for a 2024 launch. No plans for launch in Nicaragua.
