Does weather affect the service?

​Weather will not cause a degradation of service even in many severe storms. Your connection will remain stable even during winter months or other stormy periods. Heavy rains that are continuous over several hours/days may cause a degradation of service. Wireless Internet access requires a “line‐of‐site” connection from your house to one of our towers. This means that any large trees, buildings or other obstructions may cause a degraded level of service. Our installers do a site survey before installing to make sure that there is a good signal.

How does Rise Broadband Internet differ from standard dial‐up?

Unlike dial‐up, our service is always on. This means that there is no dialing, no waiting, and no need for a second phone line. In fact, our service doesn’t require a phone line at all. There is also a dramatic difference in speed ‐ Rise Broadband is over 100 times faster than dial‐up service.

How does Rise Broadband Internet service work?

​Rise Broadband provides an Internet connection via a wireless antenna system. An antenna is installed on your roof with an attached radio receiver/transmitter. This antenna is pointed at a nearby Access Point tower, and must have a clear line‐of‐sight (no trees, buildings, or hills blocking the path). When you send and receive information over the Internet, it goes over the wireless link from your radio/antenna to our Access Point. From there that information travels over our backhaul, which is a point-to-point wireless link to a fiber‐optic connection connected directly to the Internet. Rise Broadband service has very low latency (or delay) compared to satellite Internet, where signals must travel thousands of miles into space. Rise Broadband is well suited for digital phone (also known as Voice over Internet Protocol/VoIP) and other uses such as VPNs or gaming.

Is there a fee for canceling my service early?

You may terminate your service for any reason effective at the end of a calendar month by providing notice to Rise Broadband at least thirty (30) days prior to the requested termination date.
However, if you agreed to a service that had a minimum term commitment and you terminate prior to the end of the service term, you will be subject to an early termination fee.
For example, two-year service contracts may be subject to a $250 Early Termination Fee and one-year service contracts may be subject to a $125 Early Termination Fee.

What is Ethernet over fixed wireless?

Ethernet over fixed wireless harnesses the performance of wireless while eliminating the risks. Each installation is custom-built according to the unique signal-path conditions at your location. Even the weather is accounted for. Combined with carrier-class hardware and redundant power supplies, your Rise Broadband Enterprise Services connection is built to stay online even when the primary providers are not.

What is line of sight?

Fixed wireless service requires line of sight access between the antenna on your home and one of our towers. Obstructions from hills or trees can prohibit Internet from being installed in some locations. Before your internet can be installed, a technician will come out to your home to confirm line of sight and the ability to provide a clear signal.

What services are available?

Rise Broadband provides high-speed Internet and digital phone (also called Voice over Internet Protocol or “VoIP”).

Notwithstanding the foregoing, if the user agrees to a Service Term of one (1) year or more, then the user’s base monthly Service fees shall not be subject to change during the Service term, but Equipment fees and other fees are still subject to change.
