SUPER-FI: THE WIRELESS BREAKTHROUGH IN RURAL INTERNET CONNECTIVITY
WHAT WE DO
ASA Networks is bringing broadband to those who need it most. We believe there's no reason anyone, even in rural locations, should be without reliable high-speed access to the Internet.
by ASA Networks – a groundbreaking service extending
high-speed Internet access to outlying areas, and beyond!
Breaking the bottleneck of limited options, ASA Networks is proud to announce the launch of its Super-Fi service, a cutting-edge wireless broadband Internet connection to your home or business. Using a combination of Wi-Fi and newly available TV White Space spectrum (dubbed “Super-Wi-Fi”), Super-Fi’s wireless signals can reach further to bridge the digital divide in rural locations.
Super-Fi is a fixed-point wireless broadband Internet access connection to your home or business; in other words, not a mobile telephone service.
Runs on telephone lines, has distance-related technical limitations, often resulting in poor performance for those locations furthest from a terminal.
Cable system operators often cite economic reasons for not extending their wires into some rural areas.
Their connections are severely constrained by physics - 46,000 mile roundtrip adds delay – as well as by a very narrow upstream channel, and data use fees imposed
Rural broadband gap explained, in a nutshell:
ASA Networks, a next-generation wireless Internet Service Provider, is dedicated to extending fast and reliable Internet access to rural areas, where alternatives have been limited or non-existent. It has successfully completed its pilot phase in Gallatin/Ancram area – the leading independent TV White Space deployment in the US – and has begun commercial operations in Columbia County, NY.
