Wireless Broadband

Our wireless broadband is built on WiMAX(Wireless interoperability for Microwave Access) technology operating at 2.5 GHz frequency. WiMAX is a new type of high-speed wireless access technology, which doesn’t require fixed line connection. It offers reliable connectivity with guaranteed Quality of Service and wider coverage.

Theoretically, WiMAX CPE has an optimum performance range upto a distance of 8Km and WiMAX USB Dongle upto a distance of 1Km radius from the tower location.

Why BT’s wireless broadband service?

a) Our wireless broadband operates on a licensed frequency where there is no interference, whereas Wi-Fi operates on an un-licensed frequency with huge interference.
b) Our wireless broadband offers a guaranteed quality of service where the customer can get at least 99% of the promised bandwidth.
c) Our wireless broadband can provide wireless connectivity for up to 8 KMs.
