Multiple Frequencies

We use 900 MHz, 2.4 GHz, 3.6 GHz and 5.8 GHz equipment to maximize our coverage area.  900 MHz gives us the power to communicate through dense foliage for our customers that do not have a clear view of any of our access points, however, speed is limited to the 800 Kbps and 1.5 Mbps data plans.

The 2.4 GHz band is used in scenarios where distance and light foliage cause too much attenuation in the higher frequencies. Customers with this equipment still have access to all of our data plans.

Our 3.6 GHz equipment runs on a licensed frequency allowing us to be free of interference from other devices and wireless providers in the crowded ISM, or License Free, bands. It also offers access to all of our data plans and, though it is still considered line of sight, is not as restrictive as the 5.8Ghz radios. However, the cost for this equipment is substantially higher than the more common 2.4 and 5.8 systems.

For customers at great distances from our access points, an additional high gain antenna may also be required, especially in the 900 MHz band for better penetration through foliage.

In addition, all our customers are required to have a router as well as their radio/antenna.  The router provides additional security to your computers and internal network while allowing you to have as many devices connected to the network as you desire.  We will gladly setup a wireless access point inside your home or business and configure any devices you need connected.  We can configure any router you may already have or else provide a model that we have found to be the most reliable.

Though the pricing for this equipment may seem a bit higher in comparison to cable or DSL we offer an equipment buy-back program to all our customers. If, for whatever reason, you decide to discontinue service we will refund 60% of the price you paid for the equipment.  We also warranty all our equipment for as long as you are using it with our service against all problems that aren’t your fault.
