Fast and reliable Internet services using the FTTN network and radio links

FTTN stands for “fibre to the node’ – what this means is that if your Internet is running through fibre, which dramatically increases the speed, up until a central point, known as a “node”. From the point of that node until your house (called the last mile), the data travels through dated copper networks. The further away you are located from the central node and the more houses and businesses that are sharing that node, the slower your Internet connection will be.

As technology is growing and households have more and more devises wanting to communicate with each other, having fast reliable internet is more and more important.

Instead of using the copper network we use a radio link that is capable of transferring 100mbps if not more. The radio link works by adding a small device on your roof, usually on your TV antenna which is then connected to a router. Because the transmitter runs on radio frequency, you will experience perfect connectivity rain, hail or shine.
