Starlink Services For Nomads
Starlink offers several different service plans (Standard, Mobile, Priority, & Mobile Priority) each with varying levels of network priority, data usage allotments, locations you can use it, and some even with varying behavior depending on your location.
Each of these service plans are tied to use cases which is what Starlink used to call the plans so we'll cover the plan names, what use cases they tend to cover, and which ones fit best for nomads depending on your circumstances.
This resource article goes over the core differences between the hardware, the services, and some pointers for choosing the right one for you.
As of April 2023, Starlink removed portability as a feature add on to their Starlink Standard service (Residential). For users who had Portability enabled at the time of the change, it has now become part of their plan (Standard + Portability) and they get to keep it until they change plans which they can no longer get back.
