Electronic Solutions, Inc. of Roxboro has installed wireless Internet access at Hyco Lake and now announcing our new, super high-speed wireless Internet service in Roxboro and Person County..
Initial test confirm signals are present at
the following at Hyco Lake:
In Roxboro, we are covering about 80% within the city limits and if you are located within site of our tower on Hill Street (3 towers approx. 1/4 mile behind Kimbrough's Florist on the Durham Rd), we can get signals as far out as 10 miles.
Speeds are from 600K to 2.4 Meg. with ping times from 10-25 milliseconds! A wireless transceiver is supplied by ESI for the customer to receive service. All that is required on the P.C. is a Ethernet port or we can install one for $29.
Installation cost of $99 for a 1 year commitment which includes the wireless antenna and receiver, 100' of Ethernet cable and simple installation at the customer site. We are using Motorola Canopy broadband 900 Mhz wireless equipment which is the leader in wireless communications.
TECHNICAL STUFF - The Motorola receiver unit is a 3 Mbps device. Speeds vary based on signal strength, atmospheric conditions and the unit configuration. Each unit is capable of up to 2.4Mbps download speed. The committed speeds are based on the service you subscribe to. The maximum burst speeds are up to 2.4Mbps on all the units which varies as noted above. The ping times are faster than ANY other service available including cable modem, DSL and satellite. Our typical ping times to our boundary router are 10-25 mSec as we use microwave backhaul equipment to the Internet backbone. More technical info is at the Motorola site at this link: Motorola Canopy
This Canopy Fixed Base Broadband Wireless System should not be confused with WiFi which is a very limited distance system of about 100' primarily used in homes and some restaurants for connecting a laptop to. WiFi uses 2.4 Ghz frequency and is shared by many other wireless devices such as wireless phones, baby monitors, etc. By default a wireless router like a LinkSys or DLink come out of the box using channel 6 so the likelihood of interference is high if you do not change the channel to 1 or 11. The Canopy system is also not the same as a wireless broadband card that you may see advertised for laptops that connect to cell towers and cell phone systems such as Alltel. Our Canopy system is not sold to the public and is a proprietary system using highly specialized equipment that we have to install and maintain. It is very costly thus justifying the need for us to establish a contract with the customer to insure control of the proprietary units. Our base antennas are located in Roxboro on Hill Street and at Bethel Hill Charter School and Woodland School water tank towers.
