We are still expanding our fibre coverage.
What this means is that there are some areas we haven’t reached. . . yet!
If you’re in one of these non-fibre areas, good news, we can still offer you a Wimax solution! The Wimax service uses radio waves, unlike fibre which uses optic cables. This means that, with speeds of up to 5mbps, you can still enjoy quality internet connectivity!

What is WiFi, and How Does it Work?

At a base level, WiFi is a way of getting broadband internet to a device using wireless transmitters and radio signals. Once a transmitter receives data from the internet, it converts the data into a radio signal that can be received and read by WiFi enabled devices. Information is then exchanged between the transmitter and the device.

When was WiFi invented?

WiFi was invented and first released for consumers in 1997, when a committee called 802.11 was created. This lead to the creation of IEEE802.11, which refers to a set of standards that define communication for wireless local area networks (WLANs). Following this, a basic specification for WiFi was established, allowing two megabytes per second of data transfer wirelessly between devices. This sparked a development in prototype equipment (routers) to comply with IEEE802.11, and in 1999, WiFi was introduced for home use.
