NC Broadband is a regional wireless Internet service provider (WISP) headquartered in Garner, North Carolina. The company provides Internet, Cable over IP, Voice over IP services utilizing licensed and unlicensed wireless technologies and satellite.
The network utilizes 900MHz, 2.4GHz, 3.65GHz and 5.8GHz equipment, dedicated Internet lines to provide Internet to rural and underdeveloped areas.
Our goal is not to compete with the existing services but to service areas in which there are no options for broadband or only one available option. By combining services we can cover vacation properties, rural and underutilized areas and dead spots where options are limited.
WiMAX (Worldwide Interoperability for Microwave Access) is a family of wireless communications standards designed to provide 30 to 40 megabit-per-second data rates, and up to 1 gigabit-per-second with the 2011 update for fixed wireless. You may be asking yourself why this is important. The reason this is important is that by utilizing licensed broadband solutions we can provide reliable broadband to consumers much more inexpesively than tranditional Internet connections. NC Broadband utilizes WiMAX and LTE (Long Term Evolution) also known at 4G/LTE to provide broadband to underutilized and rural locations near our hub networks. Because of the long range of the WiMAX signals we can install an access point that provides 30 miles of coverage eliminating the expensive fiber optic deployments, long and costly cable runs for leased lines and telco circuits needed to bring dedicated broadband services to areas with only dialup or DSL service. This same network also provides VOIP and Cable Television to areas that do not currently have cable providers and rely on satellite for TV services. Utilizing WiMAX allows us to inexpensively provide Cable like TV services to areas without coverage for less than the cost of satellite TV.
CABLE OVER IP
Let's face it Cable TV is expensive. The average cable TV bill in the US is currently $97 according to BGR and continues to rise. You may ask yourself why is that? There are several reasons for the high prices for cable TV including increased charges from networks to rebroadcast, expensive network upgrades by providers to provide more services and faster Internet as well as multiple TV sets in the household where the cable companies are charging more in rental fees. If your tired of getting taken advantage of you do have choices. NC Broadband provides cable over IP services that will cut your monthly bil in half. We cover all of the major cable channels and eliminate the hundreds of channels that people rarily if every watch as part of their TV subscriptions.
