Starlink Launched Global Roaming for Internet Services Outside Coverage Areas

Starlink has announced a new service that it calls the “Global Roaming Service.” This service will allow users to connect to the internet from almost any location on land worldwide, using Starlink’s inter-satellite links. These interlinks are sometimes referred to as “space lasers.” However, the company has warned customers that they may experience periods of poor or no connectivity. But this is expected to improve over time.

Starlink is a satellite internet service provider owned by SpaceX. It has been working on a constellation of low Earth orbit (LEO) satellites to provide high-speed, low-latency internet service to users around the world.

To use the Global Roaming Service, customers will need to pay a fee of $200 per month in addition to the base $599 Starlink Kit and $110 per month for internet charges. Currently, it is not clear how Starlink will be able to provide internet connectivity from anywhere. The company is still awaiting regulatory approval in several countries, including India, Pakistan, and Cambodia. Additionally, the service is not available in some regions.

According to PCMag, Starlink is offering this service to certain customers who are located outside the company’s coverage areas, such as Greenland. The Global Roaming service offers flexibility for customers who need internet connectivity while traveling.

Starlink already offers an RV plan for $135 per month. It allows customers to install the company’s hardware in recreational vehicles for internet access while on the road. However, this plan has limitations, including slower speeds and restricted access in certain regions.

In contrast, the Global Roaming plan provides a more unrestricted method of using Starlink’s satellite internet service while traveling worldwide. Customers can suspend the service at any time. Customers located outside of the United States are responsible for complying with local laws and regulations according to Starlink.
