Ultranet High-Speed Internet Service is provided via our state-of-the-art Cambium Wireless Broadband System. Unlike DSL or Cable services we do not depend on the availability of telephone lines or cable TV infrastructure. This allows Ultranet to rapidly deploy service into areas with no other services available.
All that’s needed is a small subscriber module mounted on the customer’s premises. The subscriber module allows a line of sight wireless connection to one of our broadcast towers located within a distance of up to 8 miles. Each tower is in turn connected via wireless link to our Network Operations Center which provides the High-Speed Internet feed. The wireless link between your computer system and the Network Operations Center is a proprietary system that uses “Authentication” and “Encryption” to protect against security threats.
The subscriber module also connects to your computer or broadband router via a standard CAT-5e network cable. A small AC power adapter powers the subscriber module over the CAT-5e network cable.
The subscriber module also acts as a firewall to protect your network from direct Internet attacks, providing you with peace of mind. As an Ultranet customer you will receive superior Internet and Customer service.
What is UltraNet High-Speed Internet Service?
UltraNet High-Speed Internet Service is a “Line of Sight“ wireless method of providing High-Speed Internet access to customers. The first step in getting UltraNet High-Speed Internet is having a “Site Survey“ performed by one of our Technicians. This is a FREE, no obligation step that allows our technicians to determine whether or not service is going to be available for your location.
What do I need to get High-Speed Internet Services from Ultranet?
You must have a personal computer (PC) that meets the following criteria:
Ultranet Minimum PC System Requirements
1) PC running Windows XP or higher operating system.
2) 1.0 Ghz or faster processor.
3) 256 Megabytes of RAM.
4) 200 Megabytes free hard drive space.
5) A working Ethernet Adapter
Other location specific requirements to ensure effective operation of the service are:
1) Must be Line-of-Sight to one of our towers. This is determined during the Site Survey by our Technicians.
2) A 110 volt electrical outlet, no more than 5 feet away from the PC or network hub.
The site survey is important. Simply put, we need to determine if the signal distributed from our local tower can be received where you live at a good signal strength level. Scheduling a site survey with us does not obligate you to purchase, but it does helps us see if you have the necessary “line of sight” to get the fastest service possible. In short, the fact that you can see a location does not mean you can establish an adequate radio link. Ultranet requires certain minimums in order for you to be associated with our private network. If you can’t achieve these minimums we will not be a good fit for your Internet needs.There are ways to improve line of sight and signal strength, and we suggest you first get a technician to determine your specific Line of Site to ensure the most reliable, fastest Internet service possible.
