SpaceX’s Starlink satellite internet service is currently in its beta testing phase, which first began late last year in the US and Canada.

As part of the terms and conditions when signing up, service was limited to a small radius around the users home address. Part of the reason for this is their satellite coverage isn’t complete, but with constant Falcon 9 launches, the company is getting closer to global coverage.

According to SpaceX CEO Elon Musk, that should happen later this year, and along with some “key software upgrades,” Dishy McFlatface will be free to roam almost anywhere.

Not only will you be able to take it anywhere, you’ll also be able to use it in a moving vehicle, like a truck or RV.

SpaceX recently submitted an application to the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) that would connect moving vehicles to its Starlink satellite internet service.

It was hoped this might mean it would be used on Tesla vehicles, but Musk quickly dashed those hopes saying it would be far too big, and is intended for aircrafts, ships, large trucks, and RVs.

Before a shift to a mobile Starlink experience, Musk has also recently revealed the beta testing program should officially end this summer.
