How fast is the service.
Since we use a variety of technologies to deliver our service, the
exact speeds attained at any connection will vary depending on the equipment used to deliver the service. The
equipment used essentially falls into one of 2 categories. Line of sight (LOS) and Non Line of Sight
(NLOS). Higher speeds & more reliable connections are possible with LOS systems. Fourway always
uses LOS when possible. NLOS is used when trees or other obstacles make it impossible to deliver using
Do I get a real internet address?
Yes, Fourway provides a true & unique internet (tcp/ip) address for every customer's connection.
How is Fourway's connection different than satellite internet?
We use wireless technology go send the internet data from your location to one of our communications sites
(towers). This means we are going a much shorter distance to the internet than a satellite connection. Satellite
internet connections require sending your data to a satellite that is more than 22,000 miles away. Since it takes
at least 4 trips to & from the satellite for communications to occur, the distance guarantees that your latency
will be a minimum of 500 ms (milliseconds), Our connections travel just a few miles, so the latency is typically at
least 10 times better (faster). Fourway's connection is also much less affected by weather conditions than
satellite, since it travels through much less atmosphere.
