SpaceX Starlink service will go live next month


Recommended Posts

Quote

SpaceX CEO Elon Musk is confident the Starlink satellite internet service will be going live as soon as next month. This would be two months later than originally planned, and calls into question the company's ability to acquire more than 500,000 users in its first year since launch.

Startlink has been offered to public beta testers for almost a year now, with most users reporting positive first impressions about the service. In terms of cost, the terminal hardware bundle (Starlink dish + Wi-Fi router) will set you back $499, and the monthly fee is $99. The company has been trying to shave as much as possible from the cost of the terminal, but a larger problem has been making these terminals fast enough to meet demand, and building a ruggedized version that can survive harsh environments.

Looking forward to seeing how this all goes down when it goes live.

I totally want to get one and plop it on a travel trailer then be a god damned nomad for a while.  With awesome internet access of course, from anywhere.  Thanks Elon!

I've thought the same thing, that would be awesome. Good thing there's plenty of legal states to travel too now too haha.

Yeah I'll be on the road here pending a few things.  If I can get service I'd be stoked.  I recently saw a blog thing about this guy in AUS who has mobile setup via 4G (four) and 5G (one) modems on his van but is excited to get Starlink to replace at least 3 or 4 of them...

 

I'm still trying to find a travel trailer so I don't have to sleep in the back of my SUV lol.... I mean I'm not opposed, have done it plenty.  But it'd be nice to have a small trailer with lights/water/toilet... I just don't wanna buy new... 🤣
