We have had Starlink, the much touted satellite internet for over a year now. We don’t always use it, but when we don’t have any cell coverage, it has come in handy. Starlink continues to be in the news (or at least its founder does!) and many RVers have wondered if it is the answer to their connectivity prayers.
Barry did a thorough explanation of the product and its benefits for our TVC Community on our YouTube show. You can watch the full show which includes great input from the chat audience or watch these brief videos below.
Note: This information is as of March 14, 2023. Things change quickly in the internet world so make sure to double-check and do your own research too. However, this will give you a great overview to help you decide it if it right for your RV journey now or if it is best to wait a while longer. We will keep you updated as we see changes and as we continue to use our own Starlink product.
This information is broken up into four short parts. In the first video, Barry gives an overview of the product and things we have learned.
After sharing this basic information, he discusses ROAM, the specific product that most RVers would use.
Starlink requires a few apps and add-ons to make it easier for its use. Barry shares how he uses these.
In this final video, Barry gives his thoughts and takeaway. With its high price tag, he does not recommend it for everyone but says it can be a lifesaver in certain conditions.
We hope that these help you as you consider Starlink. If you have had experience with it or have any questions, please leave a comment below so we can all learn from one another!
