FAQs

Frequently Asked Questions

IS THIS DEVICE EASY TO HOOK UP?

Yes! Simply plug it in, login and go! If there is a problem, give us a call or email us and we will help you out.

HOW DOES YOUR DEVICE COMPARE TO SATELLITE?

Satellite has a higher latency, so it’s more difficult to remote into another computer.

Inclement weather will affect the signal and the internet could be out until the weather clears.

DO I HAVE TO SIGN A CONTRACT? CREDIT CHECK?

Our plans require no contract and no credit checks but there is a service agreement. This is a month-to-month plan. Each payment pre-pays for your next 30 days of service. You may cancel your subscription with us at any time.

CAN I RETURN IT IF IT DOESN’T WORK?

If the device does not connect or is slower than expected, this most likely means a lack of LTE coverage at your location; or the cellular tower your device is connecting is congested from high usage. Whatever the reason, our 14-Day No Risk Return Policy has you completely covered. Simply return your device for a refund.

SIM card only plans are sold as is.  You are responsible for you own device and can be canceled before the next billing cycle.

WHAT ARE THE SPEEDS OF YOUR DEVICES?

The speeds of all of our devices depend entirely on how close you are to the carriers cell towers in your area. We have had reports of over 80 Mbps from those who are close to a cell tower all the way down to 1 Mbps for those who are several miles away from a tower.

IS IT TRULY "UNLIMITED"?

Although the carriers do not provide hard data caps or limits of potential usage in the description of the plans they provide, Carriers monitor the networks constantly for traffic and congestion issues. 4G LTE data plans are provisioned on a shared network and the carriers guard against any one user detrimentally impacting other users. The carriers will act to control this detrimental impact by slowing speeds, restricting use, and worst case, canceling service without warning or notice as they see fit.
Unlimited does not mean unlimited data at unlimited speeds. Nor does it include super-heavy usage (e.g. uploading or downloading games, game updates, or large files in a short time period). These plans typically provide a reasonable amount of data usage in a steady, moderate usage pattern.
Carriers continuously monitor their networks for “spikes” in data usage which they may see this as a malicious attack on their network. As a result, carriers seek to mitigate such “attacks” by limiting traffic identified as potentially harmful and therefore degrading to the quality of their service (see de-prioritization). To avoid this situation, we recommend to always use data wisely and treat it like a utility. Moderate, steady usage is best.

WHAT IS DE-PRIORITIZATION?

As a direct consequence of the repeal of Net-Neutrality, carriers use “data de-prioritization” as a way to manage limited bandwidth in densely populated areas with high data consumption (cities, for example). Users with higher data usage (e.g. streaming) may experience de-prioritization during peak times. Data de-prioritization is intended not only to allow lower data users to enjoy high speed data but also to ensure network bandwidth is available for emergency services and other high-priority traffic . Fortunately, de-prioritization usually only occurs for short periods of time (a matter of minutes or hours), not until the end of the billing cycle.

I LIVE IN A RURAL AREA, AND TRAVEL QUITE A BIT. CAN I TAKE IT WITH ME?

(STRICTLY UNITED STATES USAGE ONLY) Our portable wireless device can be used “on the move”. We have tested them on interstates as passengers, and they work well. We recommend you use it in a hotel as it is a secure network. There are times in remote areas or when surrounded by valleys/mountains where the signal will cut out. However, if you are on open roads with many cell towers then it is relatively steady. Think of our devices like your cell phone, you have coverage most of the time but not all the time. We recommend using it in one place overall but traveling with these are quite nice. Just do not expect perfect, constant signal.  It also must remain plugged into a power source (an optional 12v car charger is available from the manufacturer or Amazon).  You can purchase a battery bank from Amazon. This device offers a mobile internet solution for 10 or less connected devices.

ONCE I SIGN UP FOR THE PORTABLE DEVICE PLAN, DO I OWN THE DEVICE?

Yes, the device is included in your membership/sign-up fee.  You may cancel your subscription with us at any time. There are no cancellation fees!

CAN I CONNECT UP OTHER DEVICES (PRINTER, LAPTOP, IPAD) DIRECTLY TO THE PRODUCT?

Yes, there are 4 available ports that can be used to hardwire in other devices; such as a printer, a laptop, etc.

CAN I PURCHASE JUST A SIM CARD?

Yes, a sim card can be purchased by itself, on a pre-paid month to month plan.  It must be used on a carrier compatible device.

ARE THERE ANY HIDDEN FEES?

No! There are no overage charges or hidden fees whatsoever.

What does the plus (+) mean in your plans?

The plus (+) means you will get more than your plan data limit based on carrier fair usage policy.

What are the data caps on each plan?

You are guaranteed the subscribed plan data limit. Any data above your subscribed plan would depend on the carrier fair usage policy.

What happens when I reach my plan data limit for the month?

If you have used all of your plan data for the month, you can do one of the following:

  • Option 1: You can wait until your next month billing cycle when your data resets back to your subscribed plan limits, or
  • Option 2: You can call us to discuss other upgrade options to get additional data.

 

What We Offer

With our plans, you will enjoy high-speed Internet access at home, work or on the go with no overages, contracts or throttling.

Rural High-Speed Internet Data Plans

Internet Data Plans

We offer Internet data plans utilizing all of the major wireless carriers: AT&T, T-Mobile and/or Verizon. Great for home, work and on the go (eg boats, RV, etc). Use your existing wireless device* or you can purchase a device from us.

SIM card(s) can be ordered in several options:

  • One SIM Card Data Plans
    Ideal for customers who know how much Internet data they need and their preferred wireless carrier with the strongest signal for their area.
  • Two SIM Card Data Plans
    Ideal for customers who need more monthly Internet data and/or wish to utilize two different wireless carriers for failover and redudancy.
  • Virtual SIM (V-SIM) Data Plans
    Ideal for customers who want to utilize all wireless carriers (AT&T, T-Mobile and Verizon) through one device. The V-SIM device is capable of auto-selecting and auto-switching to the carrier with the strongest wireless signal. V-SIM data plans do not require a physical SIM card and must be used with a V-SIM capable device (included with our V-SIM plans).
(*Wireless device must be compatible with cellular carrier network)
Wireless Router for High-Speed Rural Internet

Wireless Device

To get high-speed wireless Internet access at home, work and on the go, you'll need a wireless device. Our wireless routers are fully compatible with AT&T, T-Mobile and/or Verizon cellular network. Our routers have been tested to deliver the fastest Internet speeds for rural areas or on the go (eg boats, RV, etc).
