SpaceX launches Starlink for RVs for RV enthusiasts: only $135 per month
Earlier this month, SpaceX launched a “portable” version of Starlink, where users can freely use the satellite Internet access service in areas with good Starlink signal coverage for an additional $25 per month.
And now SpaceX launched the Starlink for RVs service, mainly for those RV enthusiasts.
In a recent article in The Verge, it was argued that the “portable” version of Starlink not only cost more money, but also had worse quality of service.
To get the “portable” version of the bag, you still need the Home service, and it warns users that they will be de-prioritized when they leave home.
So if you’re a van hobbyist or RV hobbyist without a “home” address, but want Starlink’s satellite support, you can choose the just-launched Starlink for RVs service.
Order now for immediate shipping, with the caveat that these are not fully set up and deployed, and as Elon Musk pointed out, the antenna is a bit too big for your car.
While Starlink for RVs offers immediate shipping without waiting, not all users are interested in it.
Even some users who sign up for the home service and need to wait for shipments in 2023 have no choice.
Starlink for RVs isn’t cheap at $687.94. For Starlink home users already in the queue, it’s available for $99 for satellite hardware and $110 for monthly service.
But with Starlink for RVs, the full price of the satellite dish hardware is $599, plus a monthly fee of $135.
And it’s explained in the Starlink for RVs FAQ
Compared to other Starlink services, RV Starlink users’ network resources are always de-prioritized, resulting in reduced service quality and slower speeds in congested areas and peak hours. The stated speed and uninterrupted use of the service are not guaranteed. During peak hours, service degradation was most severe in the “waiting list” area on the Starlink availability map.
