Weather doesn’t affect fixed wireless – Weather conditions don’t affect fixed wireless like they do satellite internet, because a base station used for fixed wireless internet is about as tall as an average cell phone tower. It’s usually located within 10 miles of your house, so the clouds above it and the storm that’s miles away won’t interfere with the signal it’s transmitting.
Low Latency – There is virtually no lag time with fixed wireless. A fixed wireless signal only travels between the receiver and the nearest tower – often fewer than 10 miles apart. The reduced distance is reflected with reduced latency and a superior connection.
No Data Caps – Fixed wireless providers are able to be transparent with their service. Unlike traditional cellular services, fixed wireless internet usually has either very high caps (100GB or more) or no caps at all. Additionally, the technology offers high download speeds that are just as fast if not faster than those you get from other broadband services.
More Reliable bandwidth – The lack of a data cap means customers can make the most of reliable bandwidth to use a VoIP phone system, upload and download data at rapid speeds, stream music and videos, and use any Internet-based applications safely with the knowledge there will be no extra charge to follow.
Fast Installation cost and time – There is little cost and time put into fixed wireless hardware and installation. This enables fixed wireless companies the ability to keep cost low for their customers. It’s easier to set up the equipment needed for fixed wireless internet than it is for other broadband services, because it doesn’t require physical cables or the hassle they entail.
Better Pricing – With less cost to setup and better quality of service fixed wireless providers can pass the savings on to their customers and keep pricing low.
