What do you want to know about Airnet.ca? For me, they are the ISP that brought me out of dark ages of dail-up and gave me the broadband no one else, not even Bell could.

Are they perfect, no. The nature of the technology tells you there will be outages, it is unavoidable. IF any repeater in the chain goes down, or loses power. Your connection is dropped. Out of your control, and out of the ISPs as well.

That being said, I can't remember the last time there was a significant outage. More then 12 hours being a long time.

As for speed, it is what they say it is, and it is very consistant, with no real slow downs to speak of.

Here is a test result.

:::.. Download Stats ..:::

Download Connection is:: 2320 Kbps about 2.3 Mbps (tested with 3064 kB)

Download Speed is:: 283 kB/s

Tested From:: https://testmy.net/ (Main)

Test Time:: 2010/01/17 - 8:54am

Bottom Line:: 40X faster than 56K 1MB Download in 3.62 sec

Tested from a 3064 kB file and took 10.819 seconds to complete

Download Diagnosis:: Looks Great : 0.48 % faster than the average for host (airnet.ca)

D-Validation Link:: https://testmy.net/stats/id-D9B6NCXME

User Agent:: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.9.1.7) Gecko/20091221 Firefox/3.5.7 [!]

Anyone with any questions about the service or the company, please feel free to ask me. I will check back here from time to time.

So is airnet.ca a localized provider... are they a cellular type internet connection? I'm just curious.

Ahh, cool.

So do you have to have line of sight to one of their towers... LOS is Line Of Sight ... right?

Is it like microwave? We used to have a provider like that in Phoenix, crazy fast (for the times) but only people that had line of sight with South Mountain were able to get it. I think the company must have went bankrupt because I haven't heard anything about them in like 10 years.

Yes, it is Line of Sight. Unless you are really close, then it can go through trees, etc. Anything over distance, needs a clear line.

I don't think it is microwave. I think it is just a 802.11 wireless connection, but fixed point to point.

Hi,

I see you have found us here also, thank you for your very positive comments.

Your Speed test shows what you paying for, which is excellent, at last a speed test site we can rely on.

I post my speed test results, but because I have an "unlimited" account, I am showing the capability of the link I am on. Depending on time of day and usage we have gone all the way up to 20mbps. Also note this is on one of our backhaul links that require an upgrade in antennas.

We will post another one later one when we are in evening rush hour.

If I had backhaul equipment, ....

example, but ... just a sample for people :P Ya, wholesale/distributor get it cheaper but... not THAT much cheaper. Backhaul equipment isn't cheap. Like i've said before, you get what you pay for :)
