How Fixed Wireless Internet Works
Our Wireless Internet network provides coverage to any home with a clear line of sight to one of our many wireless Internet towers in the Midcoast region. When you sign up for service, a technician will come to your home and verify that our wireless Internet signal reaches your home, and give you an estimate of what you can expect for bandwidth.
If you choose to move forward, GWI will install an antenna on the outside of your home in a location that provides the best signal strength. A transmitter/receiver and wi-fi router will be installed inside your home to provide connectivity to your computers, tablets, smartphones and other Internet enabled devices.
Your actual performance may vary based upon factors including the distance to the tower, topography in your neighborhood, signal, and foliage.
