These are what most households expect to Just work when receiving internet service. Now, multiply this by several users and you can really test the capacity of your provider.
Most residential accounts provide an “Up to” speed rating that works great for speed tests, but falls flat under continuous load.
If your connection starts playing a video well, only to start buffering a few minutes in, then the network is not able to keep up.
NC-Wireless provides robust residential service with NC-Wireless Speedburst to increase capacity for short bursts when needed. Think of it as a turbo-charger for your internet connection!
Businesses require a robust internet connection with generally higher capacity up links. This faster up link speed helps when sending email with large attachments, such as documents or drawings. Video conferencing is also improved dramatically with higher capacity up links.
Many business accounts also require static IP addresses for security cameras, remote access to files, or an email server.
Also, NC-Wireless will avoid doing any unscheduled maintenance on business links in all but the most urgent situations until after typical business hours.
When considering your internet connection keep these potential requirements in mind. While saving a few dollars per month by using a residential level account may be enticing, you could create a less than ideal experience in the office.

Check Coverage Area
As demonstrated in the graphic above, a signal needs to be received from one of our tower or relay sites. Take a look at our coverage area map to get an idea of service availability in your area, as well as service plans for that zone
Not all plans are available in all areas, but upgrades are continuing to improve speeds and coverage.
Choose A Plan
The plan you choose will determine the capacity and data allowance for your connection. While this can be changed with a simple phone call or service change request, it’s best to start with a smaller plan and try it out for a while to see if it meets your needs rather than pay for a large plan and not really need it. We suggest most typical households start with the NET 25 plan. This plan with NC-Wireless Speedburst can act like a larger plan for short periods of heavy use. Get more details on our plans here.
When you have checked availability, selected a Service Plan, and added any additional hardware or accessories, it’s time to schedule the sight survey and installation. Most of the time these will be scheduled together. On some installations, what looks to be a typical install may become more complex, or require different equipment. If this occurs and the necessary hardware is not on hand, we will schedule an installation time to return.
Standard Installation includes mounting the antenna, a cable from the antenna to the inside of the home, a power adapter to power the antenna and one WiFi router. The Technician will also connect all of your WiFi devices. Wired devices will require an upgraded router / switch device, either provided by you or NC-Wireless. Please check our Standard Installation information for more details and optional hardware you may be interested in.
