Can I move my outdoor antenna equipment to a new location?

If the move is to another point on the same dwelling, the answer is "yes".

Please call us and we will perform this move for a modest service fee. If you are moving to new address, please call us to arrange assistance with the move and get you back online as soon as possible.

Is your service affected by the weather?

Weather has no affect on our Internet service. The signal to your premise is delivered wirelessly and does not require line of sight, unlike Satellite signals which can be affected by clouds or stormy weather.

Does your service still work during a power outage?

Our network is built to the same high standards as other commercial service providers such as cellular and telephone networks. We have our own battery and standby power sources to keep the network running.

We do not supply a backup power source for the outdoor antenna at your home. If you do have an Uninterruptible Power Supply (UPS) for your computer system, be sure to have the antenna power adapter plugged into the UPS power as well. Then, your Internet connection should be good to go as long as the UPS is active. Our outdoor antenna draws less than 30 watts.
