Wireless Internet Question - why a tower
I'm currently serviced by a wireless ISP and am on their 900 Mhz channel because we're surrounded by trees.
Over the years the speeds have degraded from about 1.5 MB/s down load to about dial up speeds. (I'm thinking they've over subscribed to that tower as neither my house or their tower has moved.).
They want me to erect a 70' tower at $4,000+ to access their 3 Ghz signal for improved performance.
I tried a Rogers USB and get very satisfactory performance (was getting about 250MB/s downloading).
Question is why can I access the Rogers 3.5 Ghz signal with a simple USB device while my ISP wants a 70' tower.
I'm thinking of terminating the wireless and just going with the Rogers , even though it's quit costly. At least I can use it.
