We provide our wireless service at a guaranteed minimum, burstable to T-1. *Burstable denotes a connection that provides the customer with as much bandwidth as is available at the given moment. If T-1 bandwidth is not available at any
particular moment, then the customer is guaranteed AT LEAST the minimal level for which they are paying.
Presently all of our customers have been averaging throughput speeds of between 400kbps to 900kbps in both directions & bursting to T-1, even during peak periods of throughput demand (normal business hours). During evenings, early mornings & weekends, higher speeds are consistantly obtained. In other words, all of our customers receive much higher throughput speeds than the guaranteed minimum
Fast Access: Get your data in seconds not minutes (or hours)
Download a 4MB file in just 20 seconds (something that would take about 40 minutes
over a modem). And if for some reason that isn't fast enough, we actually have equipment available that is over 3 times faster than that.
Always On Access: No need to connect
With wireless there is no need to "dial in". No need to wait 30-60 seconds for a
connection to be made. Your connection is always on so you can be notified the second you get email or when someone requests a "chat". Whenever your computer is on, you are online automatically.
Phone-Free Access: No need for a phone line
Because it doesn't use phone lines at all, wireless service doesn't require you to tie up a phone line whenever you are online. So no need to "get off the phone"
or constant busy signals for your friends if you only have one phone line. Better yet, if you currently have a dedicated phone line for internet access you can use it for something else or get rid of it all
together (saving $20-35 a month in local phone charges, more for business class phone service).
Inexpensive High Speed Access
Not only is wireless access faster, it is considerably less expensive than the alternative
forms of access. Similar bandwidth using traditional data lines would be over $800 per month just for the local loop (before any internet access fees).
Even when compared to slow dialup connections,
wireless access is quite affordable. Consider the following dialup situations:
Home Casual User
One residential phone line: $22
One personal dialup account: $18
Small Business User
One business phone line: $30
One business dialup account: $30
Total: $60 plus per-minute charges from your phone company
Medium Sized Business User
Two business phone lines: $60
Two business dialup accounts: $60
Total: $120 plus per-minute charges from your phone company
In most cases, wireless access that is up to 50 times faster is comparable to or even less expensive than dialup access.
Wireless Internet Access Costs
The cost of wireless access is a fraction of what similar
bandwidth would cost through other means. Even when compared to dialup access wireless is comparable when taking the cost of the necessary phone lines into consideration.
(Average install cost $299)
Residential installs from $199.00
Residential Wireless 128/256K
Business 64K NEW
The system connects via 10baseT (RJ-45) directly into an Ethernet LAN or PC equipped with an ordinary network card.
Accounts may not be shared between different businesses, however, equipment and setup costs may be shared between businesses in the same location. In many cases, such as businesses sharing a
building, it may be possible to split the setup charges several ways to decrease the initial cost.
Wireless internet access is ideal for both offices wanting to bring the internet to multiple desktops and
individuals wanting higher speed access than is possible over phone lines.
