||What about rain? Doesn’t that affect the reliability of a fixed wireless connection?
||In most cases, people asking this question are somewhat familiar with millimeter-wave microwave radio, used at 23, 28 or 38 GHz. And it is true, that you have to build in sufficient margin in the receive signal level to accommodate the fading that occurs due to rainfall at those frequencies. However, even at millimeter-wave frequencies, a well-designed link should be very reliable with a "5 - 9s" availability (that means 99.999%) even if its range will be only a couple of miles in heavy rain areas. In addition, at 5.8 GHz, the UNII band frequency that B2X is using, the attenuation of the radio signal due to rain is insignificant and so rain has no practical impact on the link reliability at all.
Currently we supply service in 6 counties - Franklin, Bedford, Roanoke, Campbell, Henry and Pittsylvania County. We are always expanding and stretching out to provide more areas with service.
Our product line is based on Line-of-Site and Non-Line-of-Site technology. The Line-of-Site product requires a visual line of site to one of our towers. If you can see the tower then service should be good at your location. Our Non-Line-of-Site product has a limited range and is only located from certain towers but can provide service through trees and some obsticals. In either case before agreement signing, we will preform an on-site survey to verify the quality of service. The survey will consist of us bringing a mobile unit to your location and testing it thoroughly.
We have many tower locations now in the surrounding area, and are currently installing new ones monthly. Currently we have well over 30 access points providing service. (For more information please review the coverage map for a tower near you.)
