Yes.Cellphone cells refer to a single tower. However - the way starlink works is you will always be jumping between satellites - you are not assigned to a single satellite because they are zipping by too fast So I don't think "cells" are a good description of what is going on -- SpaceX must put in place actual geofencing or similar technology in it.Very clever system it seems. From what I make of it, sounds like it's completely different from the cellphone cell structure we understand in that your signature is ignored if not remaining within x km of your location. At least I hope a few km.
Wouldn't be surprised if it changes a bit later on, sounds like a capacity protection measure.
