How Does It Work?

You may have heard of “Fixed Wireless”, but probably don’t know all it has to offer to your home or business. Because Aristotle Broadband owns our network—and specializes in the technology—we can bring impressive speeds into rural, underserved and unserved areas. Learn about the benefits of Fixed Wireless and how it works!  

What Is Fixed Wireless Internet?

Unlike traditional wired networks, Aristotle's Fixed Wireless Internet brings you internet connectivity via radio waves. A radio receiver is installed on your roof, which communicates with a nearby antenna to deliver your internet service. 


Your computer connects through a router and Ethernet ports—the same way they would if you used a wired network. These devices are connected via internal wiring to the receiver fixed on your roof. (That’s why it’s called “fixed” wireless.)

While your receiver is fixed in place, you’ll be able to use your devices anywhere within your Wi-Fi area. With our powerful Calix routers, you’ll get great coverage throughout your home or business!

How Does Fixed Wireless Compare?

Aristotle Broadband delivers speeds comparable to fiber and ADSL—and to places they often don’t serve! Our fixed wireless is also much faster than satellite internet, since our base station antenna is in your neighborhood, instead of thousands of miles away in space!

FAQs

In the past, rain and inclement weather could interfere with fixed wireless Internet, but new technology has mostly resolved these issues. Of course, extreme weather can still have an impact on service, but modern antennas can ensure a reliable connection for most weather conditions. 

Before installation we check your location to ensure a line-of-sight connection to the base station. This process isn’t any more difficult than checking for available ADSL ports or to see if fiber cable has been laid near your street. 

Because Aristotle has to install an antenna, there is a nominal set-up fee for fixed wireless. Other services can require fiber cable to be laid, and those costs can be even more expensive. Compared with other services, fixed wireless is usually far superior and worth the fee.
