Wireless Internet

The internet is a relatively new addition to our lives. Over its short history, however, the technology that supports these services has changed dramatically. From the days of dial-up modems, the internet quickly evolved to allow people to connect faster, easier, and with more reliable connections.

Wireless internet is the newest way for people to get internet services into their homes and businesses. A wireless connection lets users experience the internet without using traditional phone lines. With a wireless connection, users can find information, have conversations, and enjoy their favorite songs and videos from almost anywhere in the world.

Despite these impressive advancements, it's still tough for some people to find strong and reliable internet services. Rural residents and those who like to live life on-the-go often find it hard to get good service where they need it most. KP Evolutions Internet, is solving this problem by offering wireless internet services that can go wherever you do. Whether you're living quietly in a remote location or cruising the beaches in search of adventure, this service gives you access to fast and strong internet connections from almost anywhere.

Wireless technology is the backbone of this service. Newer users who are unfamiliar with current internet technology often have questions about how these services actually work. What is wireless internet? Why should it be an important part of your life? What's the difference between wireless technology and other ways of receiving internet services? How does KP Evolutions wireless internet keep you connected when you're mobile or in an out-of-the-way area?

 

What Is Wireless Internet?

digital-nomad-home-office-keyboard-6249-1When home internet services first hit the market, a dial-up was needed to connect computers that form the World Wide Web. These devices used your home's hardwired phone connection. The line was plugged directly into the back of the computer. By dialing certain numbers, users could establish connections with other computers on the network and download, view, or interact with their web pages.

While this technology was revolutionary and an effective way of communicating digitally, it had some huge drawbacks.

  • Super slow speeds. Dial-up connections used a type of sound technology to translate digital data into something that could be transmitted through a phone line. Relying on this hardware meant users could only access severely limited connection speeds.
  • Lack of phone service. Those first machines used physical phone calls to connect computer users. While users were on the internet, they weren't able to receive or send any other phone calls unless they installed a separate line.
  • Limited service areas. Since dial-up modems needed to be connected to a landline phone, those who didn't have this service just couldn't connect. 

DSL (digital subscriber line) was the next evolution in internet services. A small box attached to the phone cord allowed users to connect their home telephone and computer at the same time. This change let users receive and send phone calls while connected to the internet. However, that wasn't always true. Dropped calls and suddenly lost internet connections were common in the early days of this technology. While these services are still available in many areas, DSL users experience a range of complications that make it hard to enjoy everything the internet has to offer.

Wireless internet is the most recent way of surfing the web. Rather than using physical phone lines like before, this technology depends on frequencies similar to those used in AM and PM radio stations. Two main components form the backbone of wireless internet capabilities.

  • A transmitter takes the sounds, pictures, and text that makeup web pages and beams them through the air.  These pages are stored on private computers, servers, and cloud storage.
  • A receiver takes the information sent by the transmitter and changes it back into its original form. The end-user is able to view the same document found on the source computer.

With a wireless modem, users can connect to their internet service provider's network from anywhere they can receive that radio signal. From there, they have access to the entire world of the internet without the need for hardwired phone lines.

 

Wireless Internet vs WiFi

wireless-internet-signalWireless internet and WiFi are often used to refer to the same thing. While these terms do refer to similar services, they have some important differences. Your home internet connection may be an example of a WiFi network . With a wireless router, you are able to share your internet connection with any cellphone, tablet, laptop, or other mobile internet-capable device. Whether the primary connection is established via DSL, cable (Suddenlink), satellite, or a cellular-based service, a WiFi network comes with a number of important benefits.

  •  Multiple users can have internet access at the same time.
  • Subscribers can use a password to protect their signal from unauthorized access.
  • Mobile device users can get online without using their cellular service data.
  • Rather than being tethered to a single spot, WiFi users can roam freely around their property without losing their signal.

Wireless internet uses cellular technology to provide internet access. Wireless connectivity was the breakthrough that allowed the creation of smartphones.

At KP Evolutions, we currently work with two reliable providers to ensure you get the best possible service in your area. In a few areas, cellular signals are nearly non-existent. A signal booster, positioned similarly to an outdoor TV antenna, can intercept weak service and provide stronger connections for our subscribers. Unfortunately, there are still some places that don't receive enough signal to take advantage of our services.

Since wireless internet depends on a cellphone signal, users can only connect in areas that receive a cellular signal from one of our providers.  However, cellular service providers across the country continue to invest in infrastructure that expands covered areas. Today, there is almost no place in the United States that can't receive a consistent signal.

 

Why You Need Wireless Internet

wireless internet service

Today, consumers can choose between wireless services, landline-based, and satellite internet connections in their homes and businesses. For many, wireless internet service is clearly the best choice.

  • Portability. With a landline connection, you can't take your internet service outside of your home. With a wireless service, your connection goes wherever you do.
  • Convenience. Portable modems offer true freedom on-the-go. While the range on these devices is limited, users can connect to the internet when they're in the car, RV, boat, or other places that traditional services can't go.
  • No throttling.  Some internet service providers offer "unlimited" access, only to slow down your speeds after reaching a certain threshold. With unlimited wireless internet from KP Evolutions, you'll enjoy the standard speeds all month long with no data limits. 

In areas where you have a choice, choosing a wireless carrier like KP Evolutions, can save you money and frustration.

 

All About Speed Tests

Internet speedsSpeed is one of the most important factors in good internet service. Slow connections make it impossible to enjoy popular online activities like streaming movies and playing games.

Internet speed is measured in Mbps (megabit per second). Depending on factors like length, format (Blu-ray, DivX, etc.), and picture quality (SD vs HD), a movie download can demand anywhere from 1 to upwards of 40 GB. With 8000 megabits per gigabyte, your internet connection may need to handle nearly 320,000 megabits of information. At speeds of 1 Mbps, it could take you almost 90 hours to download the newest action flick or romantic comedy.

There are two aspects of internet speed: upload and download. Upload speed is the time it takes for you to transfer your pictures, videos, and other files to another computer. Download speed is the opposite. It refers to the time you need for pages and other internet data to transfer to your device.

KP Evolutions seeks to provide the fastest possible wireless access available in your area. Upload your media with speeds between 5 and 15 Mbps or more. Download speeds between 5 and 50 Mbps, or more, can be achieved that let you enjoy your videos and movies without buffering and long loading times.

A speed test allows you to see how fast your internet connection really is. During this test, a computer program sends a small file to a designated server and then back to your computer. The program measures how long each activity takes. Speed tests also measure other parameters that affect speed and internet performance, like the condition of your equipment and installed programs that may be slowing down your connection.

Speed tests are an important way to ensure you're getting the most out of your internet connection. While your provider may claim to offer certain speeds, there are a number of factors that affect your final outcomes. A speed test helps point out areas where you may be able to increase your internet speeds.

 

Broadband vs Wireless Internet

Broadband InternetBroadband internet service is one of the most popular ways for people to get service into their buildings. Using specially designed optic cables, this wired connection delivers incredible speeds with almost no risk of disconnection. In the United States, the average broadband connection delivers up to 64 Mbps download speeds. However, cities like Nine Mile Falls in Washington state can access broadband speeds over 920 Mbps.

Since the cables and equipment that support broadband connections are generally buried deep underground, this is one of the most stable ways to get internet service. Due to its reliance on physical infrastructure like underground and suspended cable structures, broadband isn't available everywhere.

 

DSL Versus Wireless Internet

DSLDSL is another popular connection option. As this service depends on a working phone line, it is usually offered through  phone utility providers. DSL is often the best option for rural residents in underpopulated areas. The cost of installing the wiring and equipment for faster services like broadband service aren't worth the potential profit to bigger companies. Using the phone lines that already exist is an economical way to provide internet services in remote locations. However, DSL technology can't approach the speeds and reliability of broadband services.

This technology relies on a small box that is plugged into the phone line. This allows the conversion of phone signals into relays for digital information to pass between your devices and the World Wide Web. While DSL is a landline-based connection, the addition of a wireless router allows subscribers to share their connection with multiple users in their home.

DSL has come a long way over the years. Problems like intermittent slowdowns and dropped connections have been mostly resolved with upgrades in technology. However, DSL still relies on old telephone lines that limit the amount of data that can travel at one time. This means speeds are slower during times of high demand. Many users report speeds between 1 and 7 Mbps on a DSL line. In comparison, a wireless internet connection is often faster and more reliable.

Satellite vs Wireless Internet

satellite internetSatellite connections help those in remote locations get internet connectivity. Just like popular satellite television services, this connection uses a dish-shaped receiver that is mounted on the subscriber's property. This equipment picks up the same radio signals used by wireless connections. The average satellite internet connection gives users between 5 and 12 Mbps of upload and download speeds.

The biggest difference between wireless and satellite internet is reliability. Since dishes are left open to the elements, connections are easily compromised by changes in weather patterns, animal activity, and physical obstructions.

While satellite services are a great solution for those in rural areas, it is far from perfect. High service charges and spotty connections can be frustrating. Many satellite service providers place caps on data usage. Once reached, subscribers are subjected to agonizingly slow connection speeds.

The Many Benefits of Wireless Internet

The introduction of wireless internet service solved the problems associated with previous technologies. Since the service doesn't rely on phone service, users don't experience the same type of problems with connections or call quality. The upgrade also allowed providers to give their customers faster connection speeds. That means people who use wireless internet can download music, movies, and other media a lot faster on a wireless connection.

Using wireless internet sets you free. Instead of being stuck in the house, you can enjoy your favorite media, find interesting things to do, and get in touch with your friends and family with your wireless connection from anywhere you go.

Wireless internet supports an active lifestyle and enables easier communications.
