Fixed Wireless Initial Site Survey

In order to determine availability of signal, an initial site survey is required. Each site will be surveyed to see if a suitable connection is possible using up to a 10′ mast mounted at the highest point of your house or business structure using a 3 foot tripod (if required). The survey will determine which speed option will be possible for your location. It may be possible that all of our offered speeds are attainable (or none at all). This will depend on location and proximity to one of our access points. If your site requires antenna mounting higher than the 10 foot mast mounted on the highest point of your structure or if your preference is to not mount the antenna on your structure the survey will determine the best possible custom install. Custom installs are not free and cost for such an installation will be determined on a case by case basis. (Note: wireless installers are experienced with site survey minimum requirements; upon arrival to physical site it may be determined due to elevation or obstructed view (trees, hillsides, buildings etc.) that an install with suitable signal is not possible. If that is determined upon arrival, climbing on the customers roof is not needed.)

Required equipment and installation bundle includes:

  • Standard Professional Installation (user self-installation is not available)
  • Wireless access unit and antenna.
  • 10 foot mast and a 3 foot tripod roof mount.
  • Up to 100 ft of Ethernet cable.

OTELCO is currently installing wireless connections with a “$5.99 equipment lease fee + tax ” plan. What this means is OTELCO Internet will provide the needed equipment for the standard installation package at no “purchase” cost for the customers use. There will be a monthly lease fee of $5.99 + tax. Customer must sign an equipment use agreement that outlines the property ownership and the return policy for the “leased” equipment.

Your computer must have an Ethernet network interface card. The cost of additional components and installation charges that may be necessary is not included in any figures quoted on this site. This type of installation will be considered as custom and will be quoted upon the completion of the site survey.
