Professional Service

We design each solution to ensure quality, performance, and satisfaction.
​Below is an example of how we solved a difficult Internet access problem.

The customer could not access internet at home, 
we found a solution.

Fixed Wireless Internet needs a clear Line of Sight (LoS) between your location and the Internet Service Providers (ISP) Tower.

Internet Antenna was installed on the Barn.
From the Barn there was a clear
 LoS to the ISP tower. 

A private radio link from the Barn to Arena, then a cable from Arena to the House completes the connection.

In the City you have more options for Internet Access.

Types of Internet Connections

Pros:
- Widely available
- Lower costs
- Fast speeds

Cons:
- Slower speeds during
  peek usage times

- Available in Urban
  locations only

Cable internet is a very common type of internet connection. It's (not surprisingly) connected via existing cable wires, so buildings routed for cable TV already have the infrastructure for internet access. It's usually pretty fast, but keep in mind that when you get home from work and finally start streaming your favorite shows, all of your neighbors are likely doing the same thing. If they have cable internet too, then you could experience network congestion, which might slow things down a bit.

Pros:
- Widely available
- Medium costs
- Minimum
  Broadband speeds

Cons:
- Slower speeds with
  greater distance to DSL
  neighborhood cabinet

- Available in Urban
  locations

DSL, short for Digital Subscriber Line, is a type of internet connection that connects using the landline network.
Since our nation’s telephone infrastructure is already pretty established, DSL has a larger coverage area. DSL plans are relatively inexpensive when compared to Cable internet. Connection speeds vary based on your distance from a DSL neighborhood cabinet.

Pros:
- Very fast
- Medium costs
- Very reliable

Cons:
- Not widely available

Fiber optic internet denotes connections that are made via thin glass fibers that conduct light. Fiber optic cables allow for super-fast connection speeds; it’s no wonder it’s been declared “future proof.” The technology is widely available in places like South Korea and Australia, and is making its way through the U.S., led by the likes of Google Fiber and Verizon Fios. Even though it's not widely available yet, you might just be lucky enough to have it in your area. It's definitely worth a look.

Satellite internet is versatile (Starlink) . Since it doesn’t require cables or wires to work, satellite internet can be accessed by customers living in rural areas where the infrastructure for cable, DSL, or fiber connectivity is absent. Satellite internet is made possible via a dish installed at the customer’s home.

Pros:
- Location not
  important

- Medium costs
- Good performance

Cons:
- Needs a clear line of sight
  to the sky

- Old Satellite Service has
  poor performance

Mobile broadband denotes a wireless internet connection via the same connectivity and coverage of cell phone carriers like TELUS, BELL, and ROGERS. It is typically connected via a portable modem or hotspot, which is different than the fixed line modem that is connected via cable or telephone line. A great form of portable internet service.

Pros:
- Can be Fast
- No installation
- Portable

Cons:
- Subject to data caps
- Cost vs Performance is poor
- Requires good mobile signal

Fixed Wireless internet works from on a Line of Sight requirement. Wireless Internet Service Providers (WISP) install small towers at or near a wired fiber source and then those towers deliver data to your location using a shared antenna that connects to your internet hardware. Dedicated antennas are available for a larger fee.

Pros:
- Rural availability
- Medium performance

Cons:
- Humid Atmosphere
  impacts performance

- Need LOS to ISP tower
