Remote No Longer Means No Access.
Fixed Wireless Internet from Citynet
Fixed Wireless Connectivity
Citynet offers fixed wireless connectivity for business in the greater Wheeling, West Virginia area. A fixed wireless connection is an extremely flexible way of enabling data communications between sites, especially remote sites, and the Internet without the need to install a cable infrastructure. It’s also a simple and secure method of Internet access. Fixed wireless utilizes microwave signals to connect customers between a Citynet tower to a receiving dish at the customer’s location.
NOTE: Fixed wireless is not WiFi or a satellite connection.
How it Works
Fixed Wireless is typically part of a wireless WAN infrastructure connecting two fixed locations, such as buildings, with a directional radio antenna at each end of the signal. It’s designed to handle various weather conditions, signal distances and bandwidths. Radios and antennas are selected to make their transmission beam as narrow as possible and thus focus the transmitted energy to their destination. This increases reliability and reduces the chance of eavesdropping and/or data interference.
Fixed Wireless is Not Satellite Connectivity. It’s Better.
Unlike satellite, a fixed wireless signal never travels outside of the atmosphere, meaning time lags or weather interruptions are less likely. Because the signal has a shorter distance to travel, latency is significantly less when using fixed wireless than with satellite Internet. In addition, fixed wireless is less expensive than satellite and there aren’t any data caps.
