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.

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.
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.
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
