Satellite – Because satellites are floating in orbit as much as 20,000 miles away, latency (the delay between the signal being sent and reaching its destination) is going to be much higher than just about any other option. By comparison, your nearest Fiberpipe tower will be less than 5 miles from your house. Fiberpipe Wireless latency times (ie. 30ms) are a fraction of that of satellite (ie. 400ms). Customers who switch from Satellite to Fiberpipe Wireless are often amazed by the improvement in Internet speed and reliability.
ADSL (Asynchronous Digital Subscriber Line) – DSL no longer requires a phone line, so customers can have DSL in most areas. Most DSL speeds are between 1.5 and 7 Mbps depending on location. If you are looking to cancel your landline telephone and get Internet only, or you live in an area that can’t see one of our Wireless towers, Fiberpipe DSL is your solution.
Cable – Cable is shared by your neighbors so speed can be effected greatly during peak times. Cable customer service is not local and can be challenging when you need help. Fiberpipe customers enjoy local, friendly, and knowledgeable local support with reliable, fast Internet access.
Fiber – It can be the fastest – but it’s not always. Providers can vary a lot – from the speeds they offer and how much they charge, to how long it takes to repair a cut fiber line and restore an outage. It’s not available everywhere, so if you have the option to choose fiber, you might want to look into it if speed is important to you.
