Frequently Asked Questions

WISPs use fixed wireless broadband technology to deliver the same high speeds and service of traditional broadband providers but delivered wirelessly as opposed to through buried cables.

Typically, a small antenna is installed on your home or business that receives a direct signal from a tower near by. Unlike technology used for cellular data, the wireless connection to your home or business from our tower allows for fast reliable service via a fixed wireless connection. This prevents the interrupted data experienced by cell phone users that often happen as signals bounce from one tower to another.

We have been in business since 2007. We provide service to hundreds of homes and businesses in your area.

Our technology allows for 99.9% uptime, meaning as close to constant as possible, which is the same guarantee offered by large tech companies like Google, Microsoft, and Social Media sites.

While “mobile broadband” sounds very similar to “wireless broadband” the technologies are very different. The wireless connections offered by us deliver a high speed signal (up to 300 Mbps in some areas) directly to your home or business via one fixed connection, rather than by piggy backing off a number of cellular towers in the area.

To get the portability required in a cell phone, the technology sacrifices reliability and signal strength. Service quality suffers as your data bounces from one tower to another and can get dropped the farther you are from the tower and during periods of bad weather such as rain and fog.

We use WPA2 256-bit Encryption which is  highly secure.  It is as secure as Cable, DSL, or Cell Phone Internet Access.

Yes. Our service will support multiple computers.

Here are the speeds required for some popular streaming sites.

5 Mbps or more for the best audio and video experience
