4G / Mobile Data (pictures of Mobile Phone Masts in the country side)

What can you do to help customers?

4G technology, also known as fourth-generation technology, is a wireless communication technology that provides faster data transmission speeds and improved network reliability compared to previous generations like 3G. With 4G, users can experience higher bandwidth, lower latency, and better overall performance when streaming videos, downloading files, and using interactive applications on their mobile devices.

This advanced technology allows for seamless connectivity, enabling users to stay connected to the internet while on the go with minimal interruptions. 4G technology has revolutionized the way people communicate, work, and access information, making it an essential component of today’s digital world.

If you’re in an area where you cannot get Fixed line internet speeds of 10Mbps or above, WiFiSetup could use this as an alternative option.

4G Connectivity has its limits, just like most wireless technologies.

Pros

Download speeds could be as high as 80Mbps

Lots of cheaper options available on the market

Plenty of different operators offer 4G subscriptions making the market for a service competitive

 

Cons

Download and upload speeds can be impacted by weather

If you live in a “holiday destination area” you may find your service slows down considerably during “holiday Season”.

Lots of different types of equipment to choose from on the market which could make things difficult for end users to pick the correct kit they need for their environment.

Depending on the area you live in, you need to be around 1-3 miles away from a transmitter to pick up a 4G Connection in rural environments, but buildings and trees will weaken the signal you receive which will result in unstable, slower connection speeds.

 

WiFiSetup will perform an initial desktop survey of the 4G/5G signal coverage in your area and will normally visit to confirm to take measures of signal levels.  

Shared internet agreements is another potential option. This really only seems to apply to people or business that are situated in extremely rural environments where there maybe lots of obstructions or where there are other reason why 4G or Starlink internet connections might not work.

If you have neighbours who have a suitable internet connection that you can see visually from your property, we could possibly beam a connection to you, sharing there internet connection.

WiFiSetup could assess this potential here and deploy the necessary equipment to make this work, but both parties would have to be willing to co-operate to reach an agreement.  

WiFiSetup would not make contact with a person or business on your behalf, you would have to get permission first for this option to be viable.

 

Pros

Could be a very cheap monthly commitment for the internet service

You could get download and upload speeds of upto 1000Mbps

 

Cons

Equipment needs to be installed at the source internet connection location that would transmit a wireless signal to your property. If their power goes off or their internet connection is interrupted, you will your connection too.

Fall outs with people do happen so they may cut you off.

Any agreements between individuals will most likely not be legally binding.
