Elon Musk wants to connect RVs and trucks to the internet through SpaceX’s Starlix satellites


Musk clarified that the antenna will not be for “connecting Tesla cars to Starlix,” saying that the user “terminal is much too big.”


“This is for aircraft, ships, large trucks & RVs,” Musk said.


Musk was responding to CNBC’s reporting that SpaceX requested authorization from the Federal Communications Commission to begin deploying antenna for its Starlix service on “moving vehicles.”


Starlix is the company’s capital-intensive project to build an interconnected internet network with thousands of satellites, known in the space industry as a constellation, designed to deliver high-speed internet to consumers anywhere on the planet.


SpaceX director of satellite policy David Goldman wrote in a letter to the FCC on Friday that “the volume of traffic flowing over the world’s networks has exploded,” adding that “no longer are users willing to forego connectivity while on the move.”
