SpaceX’s Starlink internet now lets its beta customers change their service address themselves, instead of contacting support.
According to Reddit user ‘dennonj2’, users can now login to their Starlink accounts and enter a new service location themselves.
“Once updated, service at your previous address will be disconnected. Please make sure you are ready to receive service at your new address before updating,” reads the Starlink website.
This change means it offers existing Starlink satellite internet beta testers the option to move their set up to a new address. Previously, this was only possible by contacting someone at Starlink. It means if you have a second home that is now within Starlink internet coverage, you can change locations and start using internet there instead.
Of course, you need to make sure your new address is within Starlink’s service area. You can find this out by filling in your address at Starlink.com, or by seeing where others are getting service via Reddit.
SpaceX previously launched 60 Starlink satellites into orbit last week, making for a total of 240 satellites launched for the month of March, and over 1,300 in space at the moment.
SpaceX is developing rockets needed to make life multiplanetary — full & rapid reusability at large scale. Even if SpaceX fails in that goal, the rockets will still be most advanced on Earth.
Starlink‘s purpose is to provide Internet to the least served & to pay for Mars.
— Elon Musk (@elonmusk) March 23, 2021
Musk reiterated last week, “Starlink’s purpose is to provide internet to the least served and to pay for Mars,” referring to SpaceX’s goal of reaching the red planet.
The Starlink satellite internet service is in beta and currently available in the U.S., Canada, the UK, Germany and New Zealand.
