Wireless Internet Service Providers (WISP) supply a fast, reliable, cost-effective internet solution for people in underserved areas.
What Is Fixed Wireless Internet?
WISPs provide fixed wireless internet service, which is different from the wireless internet used by mobile phones. In the simplest terms, a WISP broadcasts internet from one access point to multiple fixed locations. To receive the signal, your home or business generally needs a line of sight from the access point to your reception device (typically on an exterior wall or roof).
Most WISP customers are within 10 miles of the main access point. As a result, WISP users will experience speeds comparable to or greater than most cable providers, and surpass the speeds available from DSL and Satellite.
How it Works
Fixed Wireless Broadband Internet Service is a connection to our fiber internet backbone that use radio signals instead of Cables or Fiber. Fixed wireless broadband services use Base Stations to transfer our signal from building to building, like a local satellite. Subscribers install small transceiver equipment in their home or building to communicate with the fixed wireless Base Stations. Transceivers consist of a small dish or rectangular-shaped antenna that look similar to Satellite dish. Unlike satellite internet systems that communicate in outer space, fixed wireless dishes and radios communicate only with our ground base stations. Our fixed wireless internet service is capable of reaching distances up to a 10 mile radius from our Base Station, but are limited in some ways because we require line-of-sight for connectivity.
