Starlink should be mobile end of this year

Later this year, subscribers of the SpaceX Starlink internet service are expected to receive a new feature: the ability to operate satellite antennas anywhere.

CEO Elon Musk confirmed the news on Twitter, noting: The Starlink board is expected to be fully mobile later this year, so it can be transported anywhere or by RVs or RVs.

SpaceX currently places geographic restrictions on every Starlink disk at a subscriber's registered residence.

Customers can usually only use this dish nearby, but Musk's Twitter explains that the company is moving toward lifting restrictions so customers can move this dish from one location to another.

At the same time, the company needs more time to build the Starlink satellite network, which currently includes more than 1,300 satellites.

Musk added in a tweet: We need more satellite launches to get full coverage and some major software upgrades are needed.

Musk also confirmed that the service plans to end beta this summer while offering higher speeds, higher bandwidth and lower latency.

SpaceX engineers reported in November that Starlink's navigation options were in the pipeline.

This may include moving the service to a different service address or even to a location that does not have a postal address.

In March, SpaceX applied to the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) for permission to operate Starlink on mobile vehicles (including trucks, ships, and aircraft) in the United States.

Adding mobility options to the service will undoubtedly make it more beneficial to users in rural areas because broadband options are generally poor in rural areas.

Currently, SpaceX's satellite internet system can provide subscribers with download speeds of 80 Mbps or more.

Over time, the company plans to increase the speed to 1 Gbps and then 10 Gbps.
