Starlink’s new RV plan allows customers to bypass the queue if they pay more for poorer service
SpaceX’s Starlink internet satellite constellation is still growing, and the service is solely designed for use in the exact place where the user is registered. However, as we reported earlier this month, for an additional $25 per month, the service’s new “portability” option would allow users to transport their food somewhere else every now and then.
You still require at-home service for that bundle with portability, and it cautions users that they will be de-prioritized while away from home. However, if you’re a van lifer or RV enthusiast looking to purchase a dish without having a “home” address with prioritized service, Starlink for RVs now allows you to sign up and purchase a dish for immediate access. There’s no need to wait, though it’s worth noting that the service isn’t designed to work while driving and, as Elon Musk helpfully points out, the antenna is a little too big for your car.
