How does LightLeap Internet service work?

| Comments Off

Lightleap provides an Internet connection via a wireless receiver and/or antenna system.  An antenna is installed on your roof or exterior wall with an attached radio receiver/transmitter. This antenna is pointed at a nearby Access Point tower, and must have a clear or near line‐of‐site (no thick forests, buildings, or hills blocking the path).  When you send and receive information over the Internet, it goes over the wireless link from your receiver/antenna to our Access Points.  From there that information travels over our “backhaul,” which is a point to point wireless link to our Network Operations Center hooked directly to the Internet.  LightLeap service has very low “latency” (or delay) compared to satellite Internet, where signals must travel thousands of miles into space.  LightLeap Tier 1/2 services are well suited for digital phone (also known as Voice over Internet Protocol/VoIP) and other uses such as VPNs or gaming.
