WIRELESS QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS
What Is Wireless Internet?
Wireless Internet provides high-speed Internet through the airwaves without cable, fiber optic or phone line connections, and is as much as 50x faster than your modem, depending on the package you choose.

Is the service affected by weather?
No. Service is not affected by weather. The frequency our equipment operates on is transparent to rain, snow, fog and sleet. Although, it is always a good idea to keep your antenna free from snow for best performace.
Do I have to “logon” to use the service?
No. Our service is truly “always on”. Once your radio is associated to the tower by our technician, you are always on-line.
How long does it take to Install?
Just an hour or two, depending on specific situation of each customer. Such as does the customer have a network card already installed? We are not dependent on the phone company or anyone else to connect you to your system.
