Fixed wireless internet has skyrocketed in popularity in recent years. When the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) released its 2022 Communications Marketplace Report at the start of 2023, it showed that fixed wireless internet now covers 84.8% of the population, beating out fiber and cable internet. It grew the fastest of all three technologies, with residential fixed wireless connections increasing by 76% in two years.
VGI Technology is a provider of fixed wireless internet in San Angelo, TX and surrounding communities. This means we are often asked why consumers should choose fixed wireless internet over fiber and cable. Here are some of the reasons we strongly recommend it.
Outstanding Internet Speed
In 2023, there’s no excuse for slow internet — and yet, it continues to impact large parts of the population. One Consumer Reports survey shows that only 18% of Americans would call their internet speed “excellent.” Whether a user is impacted by issues like limited bandwidth or high latency, the root cause can typically be traced back to their ISP. By choosing an ISP that offers a reliable fixed wireless service, users can enjoy internet speed of up to 400 Mbps. That’s enough speed to use the internet for work, streaming, gaming or simply surfing, all on demand.
No Infrastructure Needed
Some communities lack the underground infrastructure to support fiber or cable networks. In those locations, fixed wireless can be the answer. Fixed wireless internet relies on cellular towers, eliminating the need for invasive underground trenching or unsightly aerial fibers that violate the rules of homeowner associations. As your new ISP, VGI Technology will install a powerful receiver on your property that communicates with the cell tower to seamlessly deliver high speed internet to your address.
Easy Community Coverage
In 2021, VGI Technology partnered with Tarana to deploy fixed wireless internet in Horseshoe Bay and Marble Falls, two communities that lacked viable high speed internet options. In the two years since we piloted this program, our fixed wireless internet has delivered such unprecedented performance that the communities are clearing the way for new towers to cover even more residents. In Horseshoe Bay, the local council’s lengthy fight for better broadband has been resolved thanks to our large-scale deployment. This shows that fixed wireless internet can easily cover entire communities, so everyone gets the connectivity they deserve in areas where high speed internet did not previously exist.
These are some of the most compelling reasons to choose fixed wireless internet over fiber or cable. To inquire about fixed wireless internet in San Angelo or any of the cities listed below, in addition to Christoval, TX, call VGI Technology. We will be happy to speak with you.
