Re: Geofencing development

I understand the geofencing.

They don't want people to use the devices in countries they have no license to operate, as that would make them liable for huge fines.

Also, it is a beta and they need to make dure they understand where the dishes are, and to determine needs before putting more birds in space.

Elon commented that they plan to lift the geofencing latter this year.. so it might happen (or not). I still expect them to limit the movement of the fish to a single country/region, for legal reasons.
