    Hi, I didn't realize you had replied, sorry! I don't know why Qwest is mentioned since this connection has nothing to do with Qwest who is our phone company. I think our provider is linked to them somehow though. Speeds range from 20 kbps (even down to 10) all the way to 6.5 mbps. It varies. They upgraded our radio to a faster connection so usually now the average when it's working (it works 2/3rd of the time) is probably around 2-3 mbps. Thanks for replying! Martha I don't think there is a coverage map but they have told me that they have customers all around us. We live out in the desert with not many neighbors so even if there are others with this service, some even on our street, it's not very many. Our mile long road only has 7 households on it. I have and that's even slower! They changed the radio to 5.8 and now when I use my phone, also 5.8, the internet won't work. Ok, can you tell me how to do that? Thank you so very much, Martha

    Thank you for the welcome. Please let me know if there is any other information you would like. Our ISP server is FASTWAVE and I'll copy and paste the FAQ's and link to it below. The modem has nothing on it so I don't know what kind it is but the radio is made by tranzeo wireless and it's model TR-CPQ-19f. http://www.tranzeo.com/products/radios/TR-CPQ-Series This is our server: http://www.fastwave.biz/F-A-Q.php And here is a copy and paste of the test. I will watch the different tests and it almost always gets hung up along the way and comes to a stop for a bit. This speed is a medium speed for us. :::..

    HI, I'm new to this forum and would like to tell a little about our internet connection in Las Cruces, NM, outside of town away in the desert. We do not have cable or DSL here because we don't have the proper lines. Satellite is expensive and very very slow. So there are two companies which offer their own set ups and I've used both but they are very slow and unpredictable. Here is the set up: We have an antenna on the roof that communicates to the local provider's towers which are set up around the area. It's similar to using a cell phone tower. The antenna on our roof has a radio on it that operates on 2.4 frequency. The download speed varies, the high is maybe 1500 kbps but it can go down most of the time to only 200 kbps and even down to close to 0, just a slow slow crawl that keeps dropping the connection. We have had our antenna and radio and all cables replaced but it doesn't help. Unknown interferences are happening all the time yet we live in an area with very little neighbors. The radio on the roof follows an ethernet cable through the wall into the house which goes into a modem, out the other side of the modem and into our router. We use two mac computers on this and one iPad. I've searched the internet looking for anyone with a faster wireless connection and when I find them, it's either DSL or cable which we don't have or for instance CLEAR 4G which isn't in our area. I did try the Alltel wifi wireless connection for a day but that also was slow so I sent it back since it cost more. Is there such a thing out there that would give us faster internet? Sprint 4G is not in our area either but from what I've read the speed is only around 1200 kbps in reality though it's advertised as much much faster. Thank you, Martha
