In an age where so many gadgets are internet enabled, internet availability in the form of a wireless fidelity (Wi-Fi) signal is expected to go hand-in-hand with your home internet service. However, this may cause some confusion between the concept of a Wi-Fi signal and wireless internet service. So today we’re going to take a look at GVEC Wireless and GVEC Fiber Internet services to explain the difference.
Service: It’s About the Delivery
Both GVEC Wireless and Fiber are capable of providing high-speed internet to your home which provides the connection needed to produce a Wi-Fi signal from your router. When we say “Wireless” and “Fiber,” these terms indicate the type of delivery of internet service to your home.
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, though 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—not copper-patched cable like some providers use. This gives you better speeds that allow for a large amount of bandwidth at your location. Once brought into your home or building, just like GVEC Wireless, your GVEC Fiber connection plugs into your router to provide the Wi-Fi signal for your devices. In fact, because fiber is the fastest internet delivery technology available, it gives you the bandwidth needed for multiple wireless devices to be in use all at once, with no buffering or dropped signals.
GVEC Wireless and Fiber at Your Service for Your Wi-Fi Signal
GVEC Wireless and Fiber services both deliver the quality connection you need for the Wi-Fi signal needed to connect your wireless devices in your home or business network. Between the two services, there’s a speed plan to fit everyone’s internet needs and budget.
