What's So Great About Fixed Wireless Internet?
If you're shopping around for a new internet solution for your business, you've probably stumbled on some talk about fixed wireless internet.
But what exactly makes this service so great?
1. It taps into the power of radio signals
Instead of laying a bunch of expensive cables, fixed wireless internet connects you to the world wide web through radio signals. Specifically, you'll have a "transceiver" in your office (a piece of equipment made up of radio transmitters and an antenna) that points at a special transmission tower that's owned by your internet provider. Think of it like making a call on your cell phone -- and having the local cell tower connect you.
2. It's just as high-speed as all of the other high-speed options out there
If you think radio signals aren't as fancy as fiber lines, think again! The radio signals associated with your fixed wireless internet will be able to give you a ton of bandwidth -- any where from 1 Mbps to 10 Mbps, to be exact. That way, you can access all of the speed you need, even if you work in an area that doesn't have access to cable, DSL, or fiber service.
3. It can link all of your employees together
If your employees are spread out in different offices all over the place, fixed wireless internet can get them all onto one network. That's because it has point-to-multipoint capabilities (instead of just point-to-point). As a result, you'll be able to streamline your work day AND combine all of your network needs onto just one monthly bill.
4. It's easy to get up and running
Think a transceiver and a transmission tower sound like too much work? They're not! In fact, fixed wireless internet is much easier to set up than the "other" options because you don't have to worry about laying any cable (that also makes it a much cheaper installation process!).
All you have to do is get your transceiver pointed in the right direction (which your provider will be happy to come out and do for you), and you're ready to work!
5. It lets you do as much as you want
Fixed wireless internet is a popular rival of satellite internet, because both services can link rural users to the high-speed urban life. However, unlike satellite service, a fixed wireless internet provider won't limit your daily usage. You'll be free to do as much as you want -- including giant file transfers, live audio streams, and video conferences -- without having your service throttled back or paying a penalty.
