4-28-2000 INTERNET NEWS! Wireless coming to Paris, TX. NEATO has explored many possible ways to offer broadband internet access. There are many technologies out there that promise low cost, high speed internet access. ISDN, DSL, Cable, T1, T3, etc, etc...Unfortunately DSL has very strict distance limitations, Cable has very real security issues and the problem of sharing bandwidth with everyone on your circuit, T1 and T3 are way too expensive, and ISDN while affordable has very low speeds when compared to the other technologies. NEATO has decided upon deploying wireless technologies. We hope to have our first wireless customer turned up within the next month. After this first test case, we expect to roll out wireless services in all of our coverage areas one section at a time. Home users will be able to connect to the internet at speeds up to 2mbps. (Higher speeds will be available to business customers at 11mbps or even greater by bonding multiple signals) Let's look at the advantages to a wireless connection: 1. High Speed: 2mbps as compared to an average of 44k-48k via modem 2. Always Connected: no more dialing up, busy signals, recordings or disconnects 3. Mobility!: Once our network is fully deployed, you'll be able to access the Internet while driving down the road as long as you are within about 2 miles of one of our wireless router locations (we don't recommend driving and surfing at the same time!!)
