iREV Broadband is deploying unlicensed along with LTE enabled fixed-wireless solutions within its network.
Both are proven technologies and are tools iREV will use to provide reliable internet service. Fixed Wireless is a viable alternative for those that do not have access to the fiber/cable network or just need a more competitively priced alternative. Like satellite service, fixed wireless uses an antenna to link a radio to a transmission tower. Unlike satellite service, fixed wireless is not generally affected by weather conditions. Fixed wireless solutions use a land-based tower (we use cell towers, roof tops, water towers, or similar structures) to transmit the signal to your home.
Any Internet connection is dependent on latency. Latency is the time it takes the signal to travel from point A to point B and is measured in milliseconds. Fiber latency is generally less than 10 milliseconds. Cable provided Internet is generally around 100-150 milliseconds. DSL delivers latency of about 150 milliseconds. We strive to keep our fixed wireless latency less than 100 milliseconds to give you the best Internet experience possible.
