What Is Fixed Wireless?

How It Works

Midco Fixed Wireless Internet relies on wireless signals and antennas, but unlike satellite, your antenna won’t be pointed at the sky. Fixed wireless internet uses point-to-multi-point signals, meaning your antenna will point at equipment connected to the Midco Network that is on top of a nearby water tower, elevator or other tall structure.

Benefits

Faster and more reliable than DSL or satellite internet, fixed wireless technology enables us to bring high-speed internet connectivity to customers in remote locations that we’re unable to reach with fiber and cable. And unlike satellite, your signal should not be affected by normal weather conditions.4

Reaching Ranchers – Wherever They Are

The location is remote and the snow is deep, but the bidding is fast and furious.

“If we didn't have fixed wireless, we'd just be limited as to what we could do," Carl Olson said. "It would be like trying to farm without having GPS – or not having a tool in your toolbox.”

As a Midco Fixed Wireless Internet customer, Olson Hereford Ranch can broadcast their bull sale online each February – reaching buyers down the road and across the country.
