For many, the fact that Starlink comes with no cancellation fees is one of the biggest draws to the service. Many customers who want to trial satellite internet providers, such as HughesNet, find within a few months that it is not what they had hoped for. They then try to cancel and find that their 2-year contract means hefty monthly fines if they cancel early.

This is true for many internet services, satellite and otherwise. Even some cable and fiber companies will require 1 or 2 year contracts that come with fines if you cancel early. Starlink’s cancel any time policy gives customers the ease of mind of knowing that they aren’t stuck with this service forever. If you cancel within 30 days, you can even get refunded for your equipment fee. If you wait longer than 30 days, you’ll get stuck with the $499 equipment fee, but you’ll own it for life.

What this means is that you can turn your Starlink service on and off as you wish. If you’re not going to be home for a few months, you can cancel your service, and then turn it back on right before you return. This is a smart way of saving hundreds of dollars. Satellite internet plans that require a contract make this impossible, but with Starlink, cancelling is much easier and cheaper.
