SpaceX’s Starlink service has proven to be completely adaptable to whatever scenario it is being placed in. This is already available in Portugal and now you can receive essential help.
Presented this week, Starlink now has another proposal, now dedicated to caravans. This can be used anywhere, without the service having to be changed by users.
New from Starlink for caravans
This is an expansion that has been requested by users from Elon Musk for some time. They want to use the Starlink service in places other than those defined in their contract, opening its use anywhere, typically on trips and caravans.
It is new modality may be added to SpaceX's normal Internet access service. It will have an additional cost of 25 dollars and can be activated at any time, as well as paused whenever users want.

Limitations of this SpaceX proposal
The Starlink warned, however, that this new modality has some important limitations. First of all it can't be used on the move, at least for now. At the same time, there is no guarantee of service quality and performance, in congested areas and during peak hours.
On the other hand, and for now, there is no waiting list for new equipment services in this caravan plan. This means that all orders will be shipped quickly after placing the order. However, delivery is subject to network and equipment availability.
Internet provided by Elon Musk
After requests from several users, Elon Musk manages to give Starlink users something they asked for. SpaceX will ensure better portability of this service and open up new uses for this Internet access service.
In March, SpaceX revealed that it has a subscriber base of 250,000 in 25 countries. The company has a network of about 2,000 satellites in lower Earth orbit. The service is designed to provide high-speed Internet of up to 100 Mbps to 200 Mbps for customers in rural areas.
