How to Get Starlink Installed on the Gold Coast

Are you tired of slow or unreliable internet? If you live on the Gold Coast, you may be interested in exploring the possibility of getting Starlink installed at your home or business. Starlink is a satellite internet service provided by SpaceX that offers high-speed internet to users around the world. Here’s a step-by-step guide on how to get started with the getting a Starlink installation on the Gold Coast.

  1. Check if you are allowed to have the Starlink dish installed:

Check your premises rules and regulations (from the Landlord, body corp., building management etc). This will help you know if there are any restrictions with where you can have the Starlink dish installed. And also if you are allowed to have the wall outlet installed for the modem.

  1. Check if your property has a good view of the sky.

This is an important part of the process because it could save you from wasting time and money. You wouldn’t want to order Starlink and then realise it won’t work as desired. The Starlink dish will need a clear view of the sky facing south, for a good connection with the satellites. If there are any tall trees or buildings blocking the view of the sky, it can affect your internet connection. You can assess this with the Starlink app. Simply download the Starlink app on your phone and follow the instructions to scan the sky. The app will allow you to test locations where you could potentially have the dish installed. It will tell you if anything is blocking the view and also tell you if that particular location is good or not. Remember that the dish can be installed on the roof, building walls, from the ground on a mast, or mounted to trees or other structures. Do each scan in a safe place; in the locations where you could potentially have the dish installed, or as close as possible. For example, if you think one of the best places for the dish would be on the roof at the back of the house, do the test in the backyard near that part of the roof. Just remember, the test result from a location NEAR where the dish can go, can be different from the ACUAL LOCATION of where the dish can go.
