The Satellite Internet "Starlink' by Elon Musk has been on my list of interesting things for a while. So far, however, it is not very suitable for my purposes, because I would use it to have fast Internet access for work in between on vacation. And my wife could borrow it every now and then when she's out and about in her vintage camper van.
Starlink's website recently added a map to check where satellite internet is available.
Cannot be used for travel at this time
At the moment, however, this is not really working, since you only have Starlink access at the address that you specified when ordering. You can also change an address with normal addresses (street, house number, city, country) or with a what3words address apply, but this always takes a few minutes for Starlink to process and it's not entirely clear if they would allow you to register a new address three times a day.
In terms of planning, Starlink would like to position itself in the long term so that the system can also be used for mobile homes, which logically should allow a quick move, but it currently seems to be the best choice here until Starlink officially offers this.
In Germany there is actually still an area where Starlink is not available, but that will probably be covered soon (as of 04/2022).
Starlink availability in Germany and the world
Anyone in Germany who is interested in Starlink can now use a zoomable world map to find out whether there is satellite internet at their address.
I checked that and there are actually still dark spots in Germany that are not supplied with Internet even with Starlink.
To check for yourself in which areas Starlink is available, click either on this link, which takes you directly to the Starlink map, or you click on the home page of the service on the location icon found on the top left of the map.
