Notes from yesterday’s webinar…

Wireless is complicated involving various technologies, geographic and topographic implications, legal considerations, pricing models, all wrapped in marketing jargon that is sure to confuse.

  • The various parts of the radio spectrum are allocated and used.
  • How your community’s topography and tree cover impacts wireless performance.
  • About licensed and unlicensed frequencies and why that matters.
  • About how fiber makes wireless better
