Yes! Satellite plans generally provide a max of 100 Mbps for download speed. Upload speeds are generally a fraction of the download speed. Most providers only allow for a certain amount of data to be used each month, known as a data cap or threshold. SwiftCurrent Connect service starts at 100/100 Mbps with no data caps.
The fiber optic cable will either be ran overhead or underground where there is currently electric lines. If your home electric service is buried, the fiber will be buried. On the outside of your house, a small box will be placed where the fiber will be looped before coming into the house. The fiber will be pulled through the exterior wall where it will terminate at an ONT. The ONT is connected to a wireless router. Care is taken to minimize any disruption to lawns and homes.
SwiftCurrent will directly with subscribers on these scenarios. In some cases, the wireless signal will reach. Subscribers can also lease a wi-fi extender. If the garage is unable to be reached, a secondary service can be provided.
No! This is why fiber is a great solution and is better than DSL, Cable, Satellite, or Fixed Wireless. Fiber uses lightwaves to send data up and down the fiber line. Subscribers often will be on a separate fiber strand from their neighbor. In addition, the electronics that are used are optimized to be able to send and receive data very quickly with minimal latency. Meaning everyone in your neighborhood can full advantage of the service without any impact to one another.
Don't forget to read the fine print. Any company can promise you certain speeds, but often these speeds are the download only speeds. If you look at the upload speed, you might be getting a 1/100 of the speed or even less. Often times these companies don't tell you the whole truth about their speeds. SwiftCurrent Connect offers symmetrical speeds, meaning you get the same upload and download speeds. Also, many companies offer "introductory" rates and over 6 or 12 months, they will update your rate to the full rate. It's their hope you don't notice or that its to much of an inconvenience for you to switch. If you call up and complain, they may lower the rate or tell you that it was only good for 6 or 12 months. What a hassle! SwiftCurrent rates are affordable and competitive, we believe in open and transparent pricing.No games, no "specials", just one price for great service.
