With its new portable function, Starlink proves that it never stops innovating. It is now possible for a Starlink subscriber to transport their kit anywhere in their home continent and use it to access the Internet, for an extra monthly charge.

Starlink is ideally suited for areas where connectivity has been unreliable or completely unavailable. People across the globe are using Starlink to gain access to education, health services and even communications support during natural disasters.

With this new option, subscribers may now go camping in the desert or hiking in the mountains and still have internet access thanks to the gear they carry with them. As a result, this is unlike 5G, 4G and other networks that are unable to reach these remote locations.

Starlink provides high-speed, low-latency broadband internet across the globe. Within each coverage area, orders are fulfilled on a first-come, first-served basis.

On Twitter, a Starlink user spoke about the simplicity of having a Starlink kit while camping, writing, "Starlink is excellent for RV's, camping or any activity away from cities."

A solution to the problem of using Starlink kit while driving is currently being worked on by Starlink. Starlink provides portability on a "best effort basis," which implies that customers who have registered their service address will be given priority. As a result of this prioritizing, customers who move their Starlink to a different place can expect diminished service as a result.

Using advanced satellites in a low orbit, Starlink enables video calls, online gaming, streaming, and other high data rate activities that historically have not been possible with satellite internet. Users can expect to see download speeds between 100 Mb/s and 200 Mb/s and latency as low as 20ms in most locations.

Starlink to be available in the Philippines starting Q4 2022

From the fourth quarter of 2022, SpaceX's Starlink availability map indicates that its services will be available in the Philippines.

This is the first time in Southeast Asia that Starlink will provide satellite broadband service to the Philippines, as reported by Reuters. This might make it the second-largest network in Asia behind Japan, which is expected to link in September.

There has been a lot of buzz recently about a possible confrontation between the Bataan Freeport Authority and the officials of Starlink.

Although Starlink still has outstanding service coverage or regulatory certification, a caution that says "Estimates are reliant on government approval and network extensions" should serve as a reminder to everyone.

In the wake of President Rodrigo Duterte's recently signed bill modifying Commonwealth Act No. 146, or the revised Public Service Act, foreigners can now possess a majority stake in a company in the Philippines.

According to reports, the corporation has already set up shop in the Philippines.

DTI to accelerate the establishment of SpaceX before Duterte’s term ends

It's possible that SpaceX will set up shop in the Philippines before President Duterte's term is out.

DTI Secretary Ramon M. Lopez stated that the Philippine government fully supports SpaceX's presence in the nation in a press statement issued by the DTI. SpaceX plans to deploy low-Earth orbit (LEO) satellites and its Starlink service to set up their internet service. Prior to President Duterte's term ending, the DTI plans to use SpaceX's satellites.

Secretary Lopez and SpaceX's Government Affairs Senior Manager, Rebecca Hunter, discussed this during a meeting. Meeting attendees heard about reforms and steps done to attract more foreign investors. SpaceX's incorporation as a foreign-owned company was another topic of debate at the meeting.

A joint effort between the DTI and SpaceX, according to Ms. Hunter, SpaceX has already began the process of obtaining permits and registering itself as the first SpaceX subsidiary in Southeast Asia. She also acknowledged the help of the government in the formation of the organization.
