Past exposure to this tech reveals that Starlink Global Roaming makes use of Starlink’s inter-satellite links (aka space lasers) to provide connectivity around the globe even if you are moving.
This is a new technology, you can expect Starlink’s typical high-speed, low-latency service intermixed with brief periods of poor connectivity, or none at all. However, SpaceX promised to improve coverage broader in the near future.
SpaceX says that the new Starlink Roam will provide a powerful backup for people even in places where the mobile network becomes unreachable.
Interestingly, the Starlink Roam enables you to pause and un-pause service at any time. This will give you the power to customize services according to your preference and requirements.
Initially, SpaceX will ship Standard Starlink, however, a new Flat high-performance version for in-motion use is currently only available for selected markets.
There is some user complaint that just appeared on U.S. carriers and it’s rampage out there, let’s check some.
A Twitter user wrote “And I have problems making @Verizon calls in Whittier!”

Another comes up with “Wow, and with @TMobile I can’t get 5G coverage at my home with a tower less then 5 miles away here in Tallahassee, FL. They say, “they are working it, since they purchased Sprint”
Hi Mark, I can get an update for you and look into the tower that you have mentioned. Send me a DM so we can get to work right away. ^JasonYoung https://t.co/8DIvLVByJj
