In May, SpaceX launched the Starlink for RVs service. It’s designed specifically for RV owners who want to access the internet while in their vehicle, as the name implies.
The setup kit costs $599, and the monthly fee is $135, which is $25 more than regular Starlink. The main limitation is that it cannot be used while the RV is in motion. This restriction does not exist in the all-new Flat High Performance Starlink for RVs service.
According to the company, it enables users to enjoy high-speed, low-latency internet while on the move.
It employs a larger terminal that can see 35% more of the sky than the standard version’s kit and is more resistant to extreme weather while performing better in high temperatures and snow.

RV passengers will likely appreciate having access to the internet while travelling down highways and the like, but the service is not cheap.
The dish and mount cost $2,500, which is nearly $2,000 more than the stationary-only version, but the monthly cost remains the same at $135.
You can also pause and restart the service, just like the standard option, so you don’t have to pay for it when it’s not in use. This year, Starlink has been expanding its internet service to new areas.
It has launched Starlink Maritime, which is designed for the extreme conditions faced by boats, ships, yachts, and oil rigs, in addition to RVs, both moving and static. To use this service, users must pay a one-time fee of $10,000, followed by a monthly fee of $5,000.
Starlink Aviation, a high-speed, low-latency in-flight internet connectivity option that works regardless of your location, is a more recent addition.
It provides up to 350 Mbps to each plane with latency as low as 20 MS, allowing passengers to enjoy online gaming, video calls, and VPN connections.
Pricing ranges from $15,500 to $25,000 per month for unlimited data, with a $150,000 one-time hardware fee.
