WHAT IS FIXED WIRELESS BROADBAND?


Fixed wireless broadband is a type of high-speed internet access where connections to service providers use radio signals rather than cables. Several different forms of fixed wireless broadband are available to residential and business customers.

Internet users who might prefer fixed wireless include people in areas that lack fiber optic cable, DSL or cable television lines. They can still enjoy broadband internet access via a wireless service that can beam the connection straight to where it needs to go.


FIXED WIRELESS INTERNET EQUIPMENT & SETUP


Fixed wireless utilises transmission towers (sometimes called base stations) that communicate with each other and with the subscriber's location (often called customer premises). These ground stations are maintained by internet providers.

Northsat install transceiver equipment on their building to communicate with the fixed wireless ground stations. Transceivers consist of a yagi or rectangular shaped antenna with attached radio transmitters.

Unlike satellite internet systems that communicate into outer space, fixed wireless radios communicate only with base stations.
