We are not satellite. While we do add a small radio onto your structure, it connects back to one of our many towers which are fed with our fiber line in Bakersfield. Read our blog article called What is Fixed Wireless to learn more.
The amount of bandwidth you need depends on these factors: how many people or devices are connected to the internet at the same time and the kind of use (streaming movies or TV, gaming, or browsing).
The bandwidth for each package is divided among all of the connected devices. The more of these things you want to do at the same time, the more bandwidth you need. Refer to the plan comparison for more information.
Lake Linx professionally mounts an antenna on your rooftop or exterior wall, then runs a CAT 5 wire (data wire with 4 pairs of wires) down the outside wall of your home (we try to follow a rain gutter to hide the cable).
We then bring the cable into your home by drilling a small hole or following an existing entry into the home such as a duct or prior cable, phone or satellite TV installation entry. An Ethernet end is installed on the inside of an exterior wall which connects to the power supply or router.
We can typically have service installed within 3 business days of placing an order. Once we’ve determined that the service will work at your location (site survey), it takes about 1 hour to complete a standard installation, and 4 hours for DIA installation in most cases.
