Not ready to pay the high fee to own a Starlink dish? SpaceX is introducing the option to rent one for around $18 per month starting in the UK.

The company is notifying customers in the country about the rent-a-Starlink option, according(Opens in a new window) to a user on Reddit. In the email, SpaceX says the required dish hardware can be rented for £15 ($18) per month while paying an additional one-time £99 ($118) activation fee.
