Fixed Wireless Access: Revolutionizing Rural Internet Connectivity


Let's talk about Fixed Wireless Access (FWA). You may have heard about it in the news

recently, but the truth is, it's been around for over a decade. FWA uses wireless technology to

deliver high-speed internet to areas where traditional wired connectivity is either too expensive

or impossible to deploy. It's been a game-changer for rural areas, where internet access has

historically been limited or non-existent.


FWA is not a new technology, and it's not a magic bullet. It's simply one tool in the toolbox for improving internet connectivity. FWA uses point-to-point or point-to-multipoint connections to deliver high-speed internet to areas where traditional wired connectivity is too expensive or impossible to deploy. This technology has been a game-changer for rural areas, where internet access has historically been limited or non-existent. FWA has allowed people in these areas to work from home, access online education, and participate in e-commerce and other online activities.


With over 15 years in the FWA business, we have worked with and partnered with some of the leading FWA vendors in the industry, including:

FWA on internet connectivity in rural areas, with tens of thousands of satisfied customers who

can attest to the effectiveness of the technology.


Major industry players' recent adoption of FWA shows its growing importance and

recognition. This attention from significant players like Verizon and Google Fiber is well-deserved, as FWA has proven reliable, scalable, and cost-effective ways to provide high-speed internet access. 


Increased coverage of FWA by major industry news organizations is a welcome development

for the FWA industry and its many customers. While the technology may not be new, its

importance and potential for improving internet connectivity cannot be understated. With FWA,

more people in rural areas can now access the benefits of high-speed internet, which is
