    I inquired. Not available in my area. That makes no sense, if this is used for traveling.

    Look for a address in a area without a waitlist Then order it and set shipping address to urs and add Portability. Its what 70% of new users are doing right now which is why they are charging for roaming.
    For example if u live in odesto,CA here is an address thats like 30 miles away that will work. Set service address
    12801 Looney Rd, Snelling, CA 95369

    Then for shipping use ur address. Once u get the kit then add portability or even when u place the order if it lets u then. Be WARNED the cables break VERY easy so order a spare its gonna take a months to even get a cable as they are back ordered..

    So, does it only do internet? What about TV?

    You can get TV if it only provides internet (BTW, Starlink only provides internet) by using the website USTVGO.TV. NBC stations, ESPN, Nat. Geo, and other stations will require you use a VPN or they will not stream to your device. USTVGO.TV is the only TV connection I have. It's awesom and free, other than the cost of a VPN. Use any VPN you like. I use NordVPN.

    I’m using it, I’ve had it for a year and two months now. I had it at the office than transfer the units address here when I close that office. It works good, you can now roam with it for an extra $25. I had very little downtime of it, much of it was stupid things I’ve done, like move the dish behind a tree.

    You do know that there's a starlink for RV now? It's 135/month. Has no blackout addresses. Plus it can be paused.

    They just came out with that not even a week ago. I use the regular one as when I'm home if my internet is down ill still have unthrottled internet. Compared to the rv one.

    Wondering what your installs look like. I was thinking about the telescopic flag pole install and just raising it when parked.
