So, just what is Wireless Internet?
High Desert's Wireless Internet uses microwave radio signals to deliver
high speed data to your home or office. Imagine being connected to the
internet with instant access 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. With the addition
of a special network card to your computer and an antenna outside, you
can be PART OF the internet. Our Wireless system is designed to cover
the areas "left out" by DSL coverage and Cable Modem coverage,
giving Rural customers the same type of performance enjoyed by those in
Is this the same as "satellite" internet?
No! Our Wireless Internet is bi-directional like some satellite solutions,
however since the distances covered are much smaller (40 miles vs 44,000
miles with satellite) the response times are much better. The industry
term for response time is "latency". With existing satellite
solutions these time are as high as 6 seconds, while our Wireless system
is typically under 50ms (IE: 1/10 second)! Some satellite solutions do
not allow more than one computer to be connected to the dish, and do not
allow FTP uploads, preventing all but general browsing of the Internet!
