The internet service is going to be offered to moving vehicles.
It will be possible to hook up to its high-speed, low-latency internet service while driving along a highway in the remotest of spots.

The Starlink-for-RVs service offered internet access to vehicles but they had to be parked up at the time of use.
The announcement takes the RV service a step further by allowing connections while the vehicle is in motion.
The service isn't cheap.
The RV-in-motion service requires a Starlink dish costing $2,500 instead of the standard satellite dish of $600.
The Starlink can connect to more satellites thanks to its wide field of view and enhancedGPS capabilities.
It claims that the hardware is resistant to harsh environments and can be installed on a vehicle permanently.
The first delivery of Starlink for vehicles in motion will be in a couple of months.
The small satellites that Starlink uses are launched to low- Earth orbit. More than 2,000 of the satellites are in space. Starlink serves more than 400,000 customers in 36 countries
Since launching its standard Starlink service for home users in 2020, the company has been trying to expand it to more sectors. The portable RV service launched earlier this year, as well as Starlink for business users, Starlink maritime for ships, and Starlink Aviation for airplanes, with Royal Caribbean and Hawaiian Airlines among early customers.
If Starlink can grab a few percent of the global telecommunications market in the next few years, it could generate up to $50 billion in annual revenue.
