Wireless Internet FAQs
What is fixed Wireless Internet service?
Fixed Wireless Internet provides qualified households and small businesses with high-speed Internet service via an outdoor antenna and indoor Wi-Fi Gateway router. FMTI Fixed Wireless Internet includes:
- High-speed Internet with download speeds of up to 20 Mbps.
- No data caps on your usage per month.
- Wi-Fi connections for multiple devices (e.g.,laptops, tablets, smartphones, gaming consoles, etc.).
- Wired Ethernet connections for up to 4 devices.
What speed does FMTI Fixed Wireless Internet provide?
FMTI Fixed Wireless Internet provides speeds up to 20 Mbps for downloading and 3 Mbps for uploading. However, data speeds can vary depending upon various factors:
- Wi-Fi isn’t as fast as a wired connection. You get the best Wi-Fi signal closest to your gateway without obstructions. Use a wired (Ethernet) connection for the best results.
- Devices have a maximum Internet speed they can reach, and might not be as fast as your possible Internet service level (especially older devices).
- Multiple devices sharing your Internet connection at the same time, whether wired or Wi-Fi, can reduce your Internet speed.
Unlike other providers in the area, we offer unlimited data. The price you sign up for will not change. Another strategy used by competitors in the market is data limiting during peak times. They oversell the bandwidth they can provide, hoping most of their customers aren’t online at the same time. FMTI does not throttle data speeds during peak times.
