Starlink Roam — a rebranded version of the travel-oriented Starlink for RVs — enables users to get online from anywhere where the service is available for a $200 monthly fee.

SpaceX describes the new service as “unlimited high-speed, low-latency internet on an as-needed basis anywhere in the world”, though makes it clear that customers will need to fork out $599 for the portable Flat High-Performance Terminal required to connect to the service or $2,500 for a non-portable option. The $200 monthly fee allows users to connect from anywhere in their home country or when roaming abroad.

Although global roaming has technically been available to US users for some time, the unveiling of Starlink Roam will add additional regions (including the Middle East) to the revamped service.

Since first being made available worldwide, Starlink now boasts over 1 million subscribers. As SpaceX continues to add more satellites to expand coverage, the service’s user base and reach are expected to expand even further.
