Tesla owners say they have seen Starlink dishes at Supercharger stations

  • Tesla owners claimed to have seen SpaceX’s Starlink Internet dishes on Tesla Supercharger stations.
  • They posted pictures of dishes at Supercharger stations in Florida, New York and Connecticut.
  • It comes a month after Elon Musk said Tesla’s Supercharger stations would get WiFi.

Some Tesla owners have seen what appears to be SpaceX’s Starlink Internet dishes at Tesla Supercharger stations throughout the United States.

It comes a month after Elon Musk, CEO of both Tesla and SpaceX, said that Supercharger stations would get WiFi, without elaborating.

A Reddit user said in two separate posts that they stopped to charge their Tesla at a Supercharger station in Lake City, Florida when they noticed a Starlink bowl. They posted a picture of the dish attached to a pole.

Starlink sends internet from satellites in orbit to users’ dishes on Earth.

The Reddit user said in their second post on Sunday that there was a WiFi access point in Poland, but that they did not get a connection to the network because they did not have time.

It said a Twitter user on Sunday that a Supercharger station in Long Island, New York, now had Starlink, who posted a picture of the court. They said they were not trying to connect to the service.

Another Twitter user who previously said they owned a Tesla Model S, tweeted a picture Saturday, as they said showed a Starlink court in Lisbon, Connecticut.

Electrek first reported on users’ claims.

Tesla and SpaceX did not immediately respond to Insider’s request for comment.

Tesla launched its Supercharger network in September 2012 with six stations. The company said in May that it had 25,000 chargers worldwide. It now allows non-Tesla cars to use some of the stations.
