Fixed (Terrestrial) Wireless
This is the type of service that Rapid Wireless, LLC provides. This type of wireless service requires a “radio” which is mounted on a high point on your property (on top of your house, garage, or we may put up a pole/tower/antenna).
The radio is pointed to the tower with the best Line of Sight. There can be some obstacles in the way and the signal will still get through, but for the strongest connection, no large obstacles can be in the way (lots of trees, hills, other houses). We do offer a tower program where a customer can purchase a small tower to gain the necessary height for a quality service connection; overcoming the trees, hill and other obstacles. This does come at an additional cost.
From the tower your house radio communicates with, the signal goes to either another tower or a fiber link back to out network operations center. Traffic is then forwarded to and from the Internet as required.
