Is wireless internet as reliable as DSL or Cable?

Is your service better than Satellite, Wild Blue, HughesNet, etc?
Yes. Our service does not have the issues of where weather becomes a problem. You will enjoy an internet service that is always on. Additionally, satellite internet service has an astrophysical problem compared to our service, where the connection must travel over 100,000 miles round trip to reach your home. This causes latency issues to the internet, otherwise known as lag. What this means is that it takes up to 200x the amount of time for your internet connection to receive the data than it does with our service. Satellite also has daily download limits. Sometimes a Windows update can cause you to reach your daily download limit and you will no longer be able to enjoy a high speed connection.
