For its hardware kit, an upfront payment of $2,500 is required.
While the Starlink service for RVs provides a way to stay online even while you are off the grid, it has one significant drawback: It cannot be used while moving. Now that you may utilize Starlink on moving vehicles, SpaceX has released a new version called “Flat High Performance” for RVs. To use the service, you merely need to be prepared to pay nearly five times as much for the required dish.
The Flat High Performance Starlink for RVs has a larger rectangular terminal with a 35 percent greater field of view than its normal version, making it ideal for use when moving. Additionally, it features improved GPS capabilities that provide the dish the ability to connect to more satellites, making it possible to access the Starlink internet even when a vehicle is moving. The terminal has higher performance in hot weather and snow as well as improved weather resistance. However, the Flat High Performance dish must be permanently mounted on top of your RV as opposed to the conventional version, which can be set down on the ground.
Flat High Performance is already available for pre-order in a few locations, and deliveries will begin in December. Be aware that the hardware kit for it costs $2,500 and includes the dish and mount. Only $599 must be paid up front for the regular Starlink for RVs’ equipment. Like the basic version, the service itself costs $135 per month, which is $25 more than a standard Starlink connection. However, you are not required to pay for the months you do not utilize the service because you can pause (and unpause) it at any moment.
