FCC Approves SpaceX V4 Starlink Dish for Mobile Use

The United States Federal Communications Commission (FCC) has recently granted approval for SpaceX to operate its next-generation V4 and mini Starlink dishes on moving vehicles. This development comes after the FCC’s initial approval in September 2023, allowing the operation of static Starlink dishes. The new license extends the usability to a variety of mobile platforms including cars, ships, and planes.

Expanding Global Connectivity

SpaceX’s Starlink internet service continues to expand its footprint globally, recently celebrating a milestone of 3 million customers across 99 countries. The service focuses on providing internet connectivity to various remote areas around the world such as the Amazon and Fiji islands. With the newest launch of services in Indonesia by Elon Musk, SpaceX’s Starlink is now enhancing access and connectivity in more regions, furthering its mission to bridge the digital divide.

This regulatory advancement for mobile connectivity opens new avenues for consistent internet access in transit, making it a pivotal development for global communication networks.
