The further you live from a town or city, the more limited your home internet choices can become. You’ll probably have to spend a bit extra as well, even if your speeds aren’t as good. One of your options, fixed wireless internet, does things slightly different from DSL or fiber. It uses a base station to transmit the internet over radio waves instead of a cable. Here’s everything you need to know.
When you opt for fixed wireless internet, we will install a receiver on your house. It will communicate with the nearest wireless base station and offer you access to the web via a cat5 cable carrying the broadband signal from the receiver to the router in your house.
Fixed wireless internet is a great choice in rural areas where setting up the infrastructure for broadband services like DSL is prohibitively expensive. Transporting and burying cables in the ground and getting the necessary permits can be costly. So, it doesn’t always make financial sense to go down the road in less populated areas, where we can’t get enough subscribers on board to justify the total costs.
