Who is Breeze Broadband?
Throughout America, millions of people live without access to high-speed broadband Internet. Breeze is committed to bringing reliable, affordable high-speed internet access to those communities under-served by other service providers. Utilizing a state-of-the art network of fixed wireless technology, Breeze reaches areas of the country where the ability to enjoy consistent access to internet is often unreliable.
How much will it cost?
Subscription rates will vary by region. The installation will start at $100 and CPE rental will be $12 per month. Business installation and equipment fees will be higher depending upon the needs of the business.
Why do you need my credit card information?
As a reminder, you will not be charged until installation has been successfully completed and you are satisfied with the results. We use your credit card information for proof of residency and to bill you for your service (after a successful installation) and any additional purchases. Orders placed without a valid credit card on file are placed on hold. Without a valid credit card on file, we will not send an authorized Breeze technician to your home.
What is Fixed Wireless?
Fixed wireless is the operation of wireless devices or systems used to connect two fixed locations (e.g., building to building or tower to building) with a radio. The purpose of a fixed wireless link is to enable data communications between the two sites or buildings. Fixed wireless data (FWD) links are often a cost-effective alternative to leasing fiber or installing cables between the buildings. The point-to-point signal transmissions occur through the air over a terrestrial microwave platform rather than through copper or optical fiber; therefore, fixed wireless does not require satellite feeds or local telephone service. The advantages of fixed wireless include the ability to connect with users in remote areas without the need for laying new cables and the capacity for broad bandwidth that is not impeded by fiber or cable capacities. Breeze’s fixed wireless network utilizes state-of-the-art radios and equipment installed on towers and poles located along the railroad’s right-of-way. Equipment mounted at the customer’s location (Customer Premise Equipment or CPE) allows subscribers to access the internet over the network.
How does fixed wireless differ from satellite internet service?
Satellite internet requires a signal to travel from an orbiting satellite across the atmosphere before arriving at the equipment mounted at your location. This delivery system is frequently interrupted by weather problems either locally or miles above the earth and slow signal delivery known as latency. Most satellite companies also have a “data cap” on usage which restricts how much bandwidth you are allowed to use each month. Breeze fixed wireless uses clear line-of-sight or point-to-point to deliver our signal from towers located on the ground to equipment located at your location. Our signal does not suffer from weather-related interruptions so we can provide a more reliable, consistent signal without high latency times. Breeze Internet also does not have a data cap so you can enjoy all the internet has to offer without monitoring your usage.
What are the types of Internet service speeds will Breeze offer?
Our Internet service speed depends on a number of factors including customer proximity to our tower, regional topography and demand. Breeze will utilize the state-of-the-art equipment to deliver the best possible speeds available to customers in each community we serve. Breeze offers affordable packages built around how our customers use the Internet. Whether you’re a gamer, a Netflix streamer or weekend browser, Breeze has a speed to let you enjoy all the internet has to offer.
Does Breeze offer services for residential and business customers?
Yes. Breeze can provide service to anyone located within our service area. Breeze has a variety of speed options tailored to fit the needs of our customers whether they live in town, outside of town or operate a business in the community. Breeze’s primary mission is to provide affordable, reliable Internet service to communities and businesses who currently have limited choices. In many cases, we will provide service to areas of the region that cannot be served by any other provider.
