Recently, they have even managed to offer the same on moving vehicles operating on the roads, in the sea, and in the air. This has increased the usage potential of the service exponentially and attracted thousands of users who are struggling to access high-speed internet due to various geographic, economic and political problems. As the number of people accessing the service increase, the congestion of the bandwidth grows with it, which often results in lower download speeds for all.
To mitigate this seemingly inevitable issue, Starlink is introducing a new Fair Use policy, which will try to prevent excess and unwanted usage among customers. As part of this new initiative, they are adding a soft cap on your data, just in case you have the habit of downloading dozens of movies and video game updates during lunchtime. This soft cap of 1TB per month has been placed on Priority Access data, accessed from 7 AM to 11 PM.
If you manage to exceed this limit within this time frame, then your account will be marked as 'Basic Access' for the rest of the month, which will result in your internet activity being considered deprioritized data by the network. As you can probably guess, this will result in slower browsing speeds and uploads and downloads. RV users and other Portability satellite internet customers don't have to worry about this since they never had access to Priority Access in the first place.
Users who use Starlink at sea or on aeroplanes will have different internet plans and pricing, so we don't think this limitation will apply to them. The same goes for Business accounts, which probably get a custom quote depending on the number of users and bandwidth requirements. If you are none of these but still want high-speed Priority Access data, you can pay 25 cents per GB once you cross the 1TB soft cap. The usage and cost will be tallied in the Starlink app, where you can manage all your account settings and information.
