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.
