No subforums for fixed wireless?

Recommended Posts

I live in rural Texas - where there are usually few options (sometimes only ONE option other than satellite) for internet.

JAB Wireless is pretty big - and pretty awful. The logs for them look like someone is cheating to make their stats look better. I'd love to see a forum where I can discuss JAB with their other customers.

Going by the database log, it looks like the majority of the high test results (~54Mbps down) are with the same connection ID.  This could be someone that is connected to a wireless mast with very few other customers and running a repeat scheduled test. 


There haven't been many discussions here about fixed wireless Internet, which is likely why there is no sub-forum here.


If you have 4G LTE coverage with any cellular provider, see if that provider offers mobile broadband with 4G LTE connectivity.  The latency will be similar to fixed wireless and the monthly caps are generally much better than satellite.  For example, here in Ireland all three major mobile providers (Eir, Three and Vodafone) offer 4G based broadband packages with monthly caps of between 60GB and 750GB.   Like fixed wireless, the speed will depend on the network load of the nearest 4G cell and the signal strength. The price will depend on the monthly cap.  


My own home broadband is 4G based as my only other options are DSL (4Mbps max), satellite and a wireless provider I had terrible experience with.  I usually get around 20 to 30Mbps with the 4G service as there is not much load on the Three cell in my area.
