What is your Transmission Range?

Question:

I’ve read NCBB service can typically transmit in a radius of 12 miles from an active tower.  Does the bandwidth gradually degrade within that 12 mile radius, or is the range actually greater than 12 miles, but the bandwidth gradually diminishes beyond the 12 mile radius (when testing in flat terrain)? 

Our Answer:

Twelve miles is usually good for “flat” terrain. The closer to the tower, the better the throughput and thus the greater bandwidth potential. We can achieve speeds of 80Mbps within 3-5 miles and then get down to 10-25Mbps at about 12 miles. Again, this is on “flat” terrain with very little obstruction and interference. This is yet another reason we survey and have multiple options to mount the equipment to provide you service.
