Fresh off removing the ‘beta’ sign from its windows, SpaceX’s Starlink has unveiled an all-new design for its satellite dish.

The new dish goes with a rectangular design, and is appropriately referred to as ‘Starlink Rectangular’ in company documentation.

Along with the new rectangular design, the satellite dish is more user friendly in that if offers a number of new mounting options.

But they also made a change that will likely anger many users.

The original ‘Circular Starlink’ dish could be attached to any pole with a pipe adapter, or on roofs with a Volcano Mount, Flashing Mount, Ground Pole Mount.

The rectangular dish maintains the original mounting options, but also adds accessories for a Short Wall Mount, Long Wall Mount, and Pivot Mount.

While the new mounting options will be a welcome addition, the company also combined the power supply and router into one unit.

This means users will need to purchase a new Ethernet Adapter from the Starlink Shop to use a third-party router or mesh system.

Fortunately the company says they are working on a bypass solution which should be “coming soon.”
