Offering Reliable & Robust Wireless ISP Service

We Have A Secret?

Depending upon your location, your home or business can take advantage of the cost savings and greater reliability of Internet services delivered directly to your location using wireless technology.  Wireless Internet Service Providers (WISPs) move away from traditional wired Internet services by harnessing the proven technology of wireless.

“Why would I want to use ‘wireless’?” 

Wireless services have a lower incidence of service failure and far shorter service interruptions than similar wired solutions because traditional Internet delivery methods are “mired in wire” and are subject to accidental disconnect, and other service interruptions not possible with wireless.  There are no wires!

Here’s a table depicting the uniqueness of wireless when compared to traditional technologies.

Service Provider Delivery Method
Cable Internet Comcast Coaxial Cable
DSL Internet CenturyLink Twisted Wire
Fiber Internet Verizon Bundled Fiber Filament
Wireless ISP Penguin Computer
& Telephone Solutions
No Wires

There are telephone "cans" containing bundles of individual wires. Underground wiring has to surface somewhere. This was obviously damaged by a car accident.

In contrast to wired technologies, wireless has proven reliability.  We use it every day at home, work, Hotels and Coffee Shops worldwide.  Imagine the connection you currently use between your computer or smart phone and your wireless access point.  You search for it and enter your security password to get a connection.  Easy.

Wireless Internet Service Providers (WISPs) use radio, just like the wireless radio you use to connect inside your home or office.  Using a much more powerful radio signal and Advanced Encryption Standard (AES) encryption the connection to the Internet is provided point-to-point using a single antenna at your location.

Traditional Internet services rely on wire, cable or fiber optic cable. Failure caused by traffic accidents and weather anomolies are commonplace.

Here in Southwest Florida we have very high humidity and rain during the summer months.  Our “hurricane season” lasts from June to December.  We prepare ourselves with storm shutters,  bottled water, batteries and food.  Most of the time we remain unaffected by the storms but occasionally a serious threat makes landfall and can take out much of what we take for granted.  The power companies pull in assistance from all over the southeast and trucks roll to get everyone back up and running; power first followed by cable television and Internet service.

A stable mount, aerodynamics and locked positioning assure wireless reliablity

Have you heard the saying, “no man is an island”?  Human beings do not thrive when isolated from others; generally speaking.  However, when it comes to Internet services this is just not true.  With traditional “mired in wire” solutions you share infrastructure.  When a cable or wire breaks (sometimes miles away) it can take out whole areas.  The uniqueness of wireless is its inherent point-to-point nature.  The connection from our Internet pipe to you is individual and direct.  The radio gear we use has a deliberately small profile making it impervious to even the strongest winds

  1. I use this service and recommend it. The up time and personal response is why I switched from the dualopy of CenturyLink and Comcast. These are not guys reading from scripts, but knowledgeable individuals that can answer and fix your problems. :)

  2. Paul Sauer says:

    I’ve been meaning to ask you about this for a long time.
    What is the approximate speed, up and down ?
    Would I have a fixed, or dynamic IP ?
    Could I still host my own blog, or website ?
    How’s the service by Cape pky & Santa Barbara ? I would LOVE to dump Comcast.

    • Frank says:

      Paul, we have a presence atop the Sunset Towers buildings so depending upon your exact location I would say you’re in luck! Give me a call – we’ll work it out. :)

  3. Adrian Arias says:

    I used to help out Mark from Spirited BroadBand. If you ever need any help doing implementations or maintaining the infrastructure, let me know. I’d be glad to help out. I’m very well versed in this kind of stuff.

  4. Philip Sfalanga says:

    Will my speed and bandwidth be comparable to Comcast? Will my ping-time suffer in the gaming world? What’s the cost on average for a non-commercial account?

    • Philip,

      Speed is comparable to Comcast except it’s fast in BOTH directions (downloading and uploading). Ping time (latency) is equivalent as well. We would first perform a site survey to make sure there are no buildings obstructing line of sight to one of our towers.

      Residential pricing (at the time of this post) is $100 setup (to cover equipment) and $55/mo – which includes a static IP Address – no contract required.

  5. Roberto Carcamo says:

    I used to work for netsys.hn setting up wireless radios speedlan and wavelan over communication towers the longest distance was 55 miles and the link was really strong and reliable. The radios were very expensive at the time but with new technology used by updated radios its much better on price. Sweet deal from your company Frank.

  6. Peter Burkart says:

    Frank, what about radiation? My wife has problems with electromagnetic radiation as example DECT or using a cellphone over a longer time.

    • Hi Peter,

      I’m not familiar with your wife’s medical condition in particular. The wireless point-to-point bridge utilized is created from the top of your structure to our tower (line of sight). We use AES encrypted WiFi in the 5.6 Ghz frequency range. I hope this answers your question. If not, you may wish to consult with your physician.

      Thank you for your question.

  7. We’re a bunch of volunteers and starting a
    new scheme in our community. Your website offered us
    with valuable information to work on. You’ve done a formidable
    task and our entire group will be thankful to you.
