How Long Does It Take to Install Starlink Satellite Internet

So, how long would it take to get these advanced, otherworldly gadgets working at your home, you ask? As swift as a cup of tea, I dare say!

Indeed, installation for the Starlink system can be accomplished with relative ease – if you’re just looking to plug and go. Those of us who are lucky enough to live out in the beautiful British countryside may have a spot of land that is large enough to have an unobstructed view of the sky, therefore, if you are so lucky, you can get Starlink working relatively quickly.

However, not all of us are this fortunate and instead have to look at mounting our Starlink dish on a roof…or tree, pole… lighthouse (we’ve seen it all).

Step-by-Step Guide on Installing Starlink Satellite Internet

  1. Put on your finest explorer’s clothes (and safety gear!) and venture outdoors to find that ideal location with a panoramic view of the lovely English skies, ensuring your location is free from obstructions. Use the Starlink App to help you find the ideal place.
  2. Most people will be installing their Starlink on the roof of their house or building. Go ahead and put up those ladders (safely) and reach for the…stars.
  3. If you’re mounting on a flat surface then you can attach the tripod to the dish, or if you are using one of the other Starlink mounting accessoiries you can go ahead and attach it. You may also be using your own mounting materials and tools. Either way, now is the time to fix everything in place.
  4. Connect the required cables, and channel your inner Sherlock Holmes to deduce the best path for the cable indoors. If you’re installing your Starlink on your roof, you need to make sure that your cable is secured in place to the wall of your house/building. Sometimes you may even be able to go from the roof and straight into your loft. But, usually, most people will be getting the drill out to create a hole for the cable to pass through and into your home or building.
  5. Once you’ve got the cable inside and secured it, plug it into the Starlink router, and plug it in to your electrical socket. Give yourself a pat on the back as you witness the little LED light turn on, signalling the beginning of your high-speed satellite internet adventure.
  6. Use the Starlink App and follow the on-screen instructions to easily setup your Starlink WiFi and configure your settings.
  7. Congratulations, you’ve successfully installed your Starlink Satellite Internet! You’re now ready to indulge in all the delightful digital experiences it has to offer. Pip pip, hooray!
