In today’s internet-enabled world, confusion may arise between Wi-Fi signals and wireless internet service. This article explains the differences between GVEC Wireless and GVEC Fiber Internet services.
It’s All About the Delivery
Both GVEC Wireless and Fiber are capable of providing high-speed internet to your home, providing the connection needed for a Wi-Fi signal from your router. “Wireless” and “Fiber,” refer to the delivery methods of internet service.
Wireless internet works by installing a radio at your location. This radio points to one of our service towers to receive an internet signal wirelessly, through the air. A cable from the radio is brought into your home or building and plugs either directly into a computer or into a router to produce a Wi-Fi signal for wireless devices to connect to.
Fiber internet from GVEC is delivered to your home by way of a pure Fiber to the Home connection. This gives you faster speeds and more bandwidth. Like GVEC Wireless, the fiber connection plugs into your router to supply a Wi-Fi signal. Fiber’s speed allows multiple devices to connect simultaneously without buffering or dropped signals.
GVEC Wireless and Fiber at Your Service for Your Wi-Fi Signal
Both GVEC Wireless and Fiber services deliver the quality connection you need for the Wi-Fi signal needed to support your home or business network. Between the two services, there’s a speed plan to fit everyone’s internet needs and budget—Wireless delivering speeds up to 25 Mbps and Fiber delivering up to 1 Gbps!
