What is Wireless Broadband?
Simply put, wireless broadband is a technology that enables home and business users to obtain high-speed data access through the airwaves. Wireless broadband uses radio frequency to transmit data from an 'Access Point' (Much like a radio station) to the customers. This means you can achieve high speed internet without using phone lines at all. Wireless broadband is capable of speeds ranging from 256Kbps to 108Mbps. Each base station generally serves an area of several square kilometres.
How does Wireless Broadband Work?
Wireless broadband devices use radio waves to transmit and receive data over the air without relying on any physical connection. In a typical wireless broadband network, base stations connect to a network backbone and use an outdoor antenna to send and receive high-speed data to the subscriber's terminal equipment. This reduces the need for wireline infrastructure.
