Why should I get a UPS for my Starlink Hardware?

The Starlink Hardware is very sensitive to Power, so if it doesn’t have the required voltage or “clean” power, the Starlink Router can not work efficiently, resulting in what appear to be outages or dropouts. Clean power is when there is a steady required voltage and is a clean signwave. If it is dirty, the voltage might be lower and not be a clean signwave, resulting in the Starlink not operating efficiently.

Starlink is perfect for remote areas with no other internet solutions or poor phone coverage. However, that often means that power isn’t entirely reliable or clean. In some cases, users that are “last of the line” for power have the most issues as everyone up the line from them will be drawing power and then as it eventually gets to you, the power voltage is low and unsuitable for Starlink.

A UPS (Uninterrupted Power Supply) can help clean the power and provide your Starlink with not only surge protection but the required voltage in a clean sign wave (if you get a UPS with Automatic Voltage Regulation – AVR). A UPS can also help in a power outage keeping your Starlink connected for roughly 1 hour (depending on the UPS size and other connected equipment to the UPS) which is often enough time for you to get a generator connected so you maintain internet connectivity.

Depending on the size of the UPS that you get, it can be a cheap but effective solution to ensure you have your Starlink running efficiently and without any issues. I usually recommend a 960W UPS which is about $300 that includes with a nice little LED readout screen.

 

The Process
Site Survey
Before even installing Starlink or requesting a service, we will assess the site of which you wish to have Starlink installed. We could do this remotely or it can be done in person depending on your location and obstecles. This is to ensure that Starlink is going to be the best solution for you and that your location will have a reliable Starlink connection.
Finalise Order
Upon completion of the Site Survey, we will provide a final order which outlines the install process, core parts and if any additional parts that might be required. We require approval on this to proceed.
Equipment Order
Once your order is approved and first payment of the order received, we will purchase any additional parts. If you haven't already, this is the time you can place your order for the Starlink equipment and Service.
Installation
Once all parts have been received and you have your Starlink equipment, we will arrange a date for your installation.
This unfortunately can be subject to weather.
