Elon Musk’s satellite Internet will turn from stationary to mobile by the end of the year

At the moment, Elon Musk’s satellite Internet of the Starlink system, actively developed by SpaceX, is available only for stationary use – in homes. However, Musk promises that by the end of the year the Starlink service will become mobile – it can be used on the go.

Musk noted on Twitter that the Starlink hardware is still too bulky for Tesla vehicles (and therefore any other car), but it can be used on airplanes and ships. There will be no problem using Musk’s satellite internet in trucks and delivery vans. Considering that automobile houses are often built on the basis of the latter, this is good news for lovers of this kind of rest and travel.

The current feature of Starlink is that the service is tightly bound to the location. Beta users note that when you configure it, you are given a clear indication that the service is tied to a specific activation location. Simply put, you cannot just take the equipment and move it from one house to another, which is located in the conditional 50 or 100 km or more – the Internet will stop working. For now, this is a temporary limitation until the satellite network is built entirely. However, given the pace with which new members of the Starlink constellation are being launched into orbit, by the end of the year this restriction will cease to apply – the service will become truly mobile.
