The Beginning of Space Internet: Starlink RV Review

Elon Musk's SpaceX released its internet from space service in public beta in 2020. The service has drastically enhanced since the testing conducted last year, where it was identified as inconsistent and foiled by the merest suggestion of trees. The latest improvements include the release of a smaller rectangular dish and sanctioned portability support, most expressly with the release of the Starlink RV service.

The service lets owners take their $599 Dishy McFlatface anywhere on the same continent there is coverage. In addition, you can pause and unpause the $135/month service so that you are only paying for the months you require it.

Most significantly, Starlink RV targets individuals on the go, be it overlanders, weekend campers, and vanlifers who work and live in their rigs year-round, or retirees with an RV. As such, Starlink RV is competing against expensive unlimited mobile data plans and signal boosters that strive to fill gaps in coverage, not home internet services.

Unlike the fixed Starlink Residential service, which needs a perfect LOS to the sky to be beneficial, subscribers to Starlink RV can move their Dishy at will. The audiences for Starlink Residential and Starlink RV differ in two primary ways. First, RV users are surprised and grateful to have any connectivity, while Residential users expect robust connectivity at all times. Secondly, RV users can move their rolling home more seamlessly to avoid obstacles, which Residential users can't do.
