We bring high speed internet virtually everywhere. With no contract ever.

From quarries to cornfields, from homes to business, we are the ISP that goes where cable can’t reach, fiber can’t shine, and DSL can’t connect.

How Is This Possible?


SHORT ANSWER:
We beam it to you.

_______

NERDY ANSWER:
The internet is a an interconnected system of computers all around the world. We maintain fiber optic connections from a Network Operations Center (NOC) to our towers which feature high-tech transmitters which beam the signal to a specialized receiver at your home or business and you can get email and watch movies.

Most of our access points are existing structures like water towers, silos and grain elevators because it’s cheaper and faster to climb them and we’d all prefer less metal towers obstructing our beautiful scenic views.

Let’s compare. Shall we?

Freedom vs. Fiber

FREEDOM

Available virtually everywhere.

In the rare event of an outage, we’ll most likely get you back up in less than 24 hours. 

Latency: 5-50ms.

FIBER

Limited to urban areas. You probably can’t get it.

Your service could be down for days.

Varies greatly.

Freedom vs. Cable

FREEDOM

Available virtually everywhere.

Uses new, specialized transmitters and receivers that wirelessly deliver consistent, reliable internet. 

In the rare event of an outage, we’ll most likely get you back up in less than 24 hours. 

Consistant speed based upon your package. 

Latency: 5-50ms.

No contract. Ever.

CABLE

Tens of thousands can’t get it.

Relies on old copper lines and aging infrastructure that was designed for TV, not high-speed internet.

Your service could be down for days.

Speed vastly depends on infrastructure. Can be as slow as DSL.

Latency depends on a bunch of nerdy stuff but could be as high as 100ms.

2-year contract is standard. (And then they raise your rates.)

Freedom vs. DSL

FREEDOM

Available virtually everywhere.

Uses new, specialized transmitters and receivers that wirelessly deliver consistent, reliable internet. 

We provide everything you need. 

Speeds up to 25 Mbps. 10x faster than DSL. 

Latency: 5-50ms.

DSL

You probably can’t get it. You probably don’t want it.

Relies on old copper phone lines that are no longer being maintained.

You have to have a landline.

You might get up to 2.5 Mbps.

Latency depends on a bunch of nerdy stuff but could be as high as 600ms.

Freedom vs. Satellite

FREEDOM

Minimal upfront costs.
No contracts.
No cancellation costs.

Straightforward usage. 

We simply beam the signal from our tower to your home or business. 

Latency: 5-50ms. 

No data caps.
No overage charges.

SATELLITE

Expensive upfront costs.
2-3 year contract.
High cancellation costs.

Uses confusing tokens and time frames.

Connects to a satellite 22,000 miles away, then to an operations center, then to the internet.

Latency: Typically 500ms.

Data caps.
Expensive overage charges.
Some offer unlimited data, usually while you’re sleeping.

Freedom vs. LTE (Cellular)

FREEDOM

Uses new, specialized transmitters and receivers that wirelessly deliver consistent, reliable internet.

Speed consistant based upon package. 

No data caps.
No overage charges. 

No limits to your usage.

Stream movies, listen to music, play online video games.

Available virtually everywhere.

Latency: 5-50ms.

LTE (CELLULAR)

Designed for voice, and voice traffic always has priority.

Speed depends on the number of current users.

Data caps with expensive overage charges.

Most “unlimited” plans throttle you back after you reach a “secret” data limit.

Good luck getting anything other than emails and simple websites.

5G is not coming to rural areas.

Latency: 80-100ms.

Freedom vs. Dial Up

FREEDOM

Do we really need to have the discussion?

5-25Mbps (100x to 500x faster than dialup). 

Silence.

DIAL UP

Why not?

52k (if you’re lucky).

Cool modem tones.

This is us.
