Rural & Urban Internet Services
Clearwave provides FWA (fixed wireless access) residential Internet access service for rural locations (works similarly to cellular (mobile) services except our wireless Internet modems are installed and fixed on the exterior of your home and then cabled to the interior to interface with a standard wi-fi router) as well as a Cable residential internet service for urban addresses.
Although a rural internet customer may be within our Residential service area, there are no guarantees of service availability or speeds as trees or other obstructions can limit our ability to service your home. If you live in a heavily treed area and really want fast rural wireless Internet access, a tower may be required to get above the tree line at an additional cost.
We do not advertise a 25 Mbps speed with the actual speed varying from 1-5 Mbps during prime time hours.
We will sell a service that we aim to deliver 75% of the advertised speed at all times of the day. Our network is always being monitored and areas in need of bandwidth improvements are identified and acted upon. Major upgrades do take time and we work hard to deliver our clients the bandwidth they need.
So, how much bandwidth do you need?
Web pages have become more media rich (more data to download) and file downloads still exist but now we are seeing a huge surge of downloading activity in the form of video streaming in the form of Netflix and YouTube.
We have tested these services and see that every HD video content needs a minimum of 6 Mbps to stream without pauses, and can consume about 2 GB per hour. In comparison, the new 4K Ultra HD will need a minimum of 15 Mbps speed and consume 18 GB per hour. Netflix is unique and will adjust video resolution according tour your available internet speed. Apple TV can be adjusted so you stream and at lower video resolution to conserve usage and speed required.
An HD Stream is ~6 Mbps, and a 4K stream is ~15 Mbps, so you would add up all of the CONCURRENT streams in your home to see how much internet speed you should subscribe to. Speed is important but any service of 50+ Mbps speed will not be fully used until 4K TV becomes more prevalent. The MOST IMPORTANT aspect of your connection is usage - How many GB /month will you consume from streaming? 3 people streaming 2 hours per day will consume between 200 and 500 GB per month.
All residential rural internet services do not require contracts and operate at no less than 75% of advertised speed during all hours.
