Elon Musk made a statement about the Starlink internet service. According to Musk, Starlink should be fully mobile by the end of the year.
Musk plans Starlink internet service to be mobile
SpaceX’s new Starlink satellite internet service is currently in a very limited beta test period. However, the company is planning the future for this service.
SpaceX has filed an application with the FCC for Starlink components that will allow the service to run on moving vehicles. Elon Musk said that the existing Starlink terminals are too large for Tesla’s vehicles and that the idea is aimed at planes, caravans, trucks and ships.
This will be a big change for Starlink, which currently doesn’t allow customers to move existing hardware from one address to another. Of course, the ongoing construction work for Starlink is of great importance in this.
However, with this statement of Musk, we can say that it will not be a surprise that the Starlink internet service will be used in vehicles in the very near future.
